Rocket League: Friends Update (with Cross-Platform Parties) releasing on February 19th

Psyonix has announced that the long-awaited Cross-Platform Parties are coming to Rocket League next week, as part of the Friends Update. It will be released on February 19th, provided there’s no issues with first-party certification.

Here’s the trailer for the update:

This update for Rocket League will bring a brand new Friends List to the main menu. It’s split in 4 tabs:

  • Friends: displays all your friends on your current platform;
  • RocketID: displays all your friends on all the other platforms. Your ID is automatically generated and assigned after the update, and consists of your username + 4 random numbers. You will be able to change the username portion of your RocketID at any time;
  • Recent Players: displays players you recently played with/against, allowing you to easily send them a Friend Request if you really enjoyed the match with them;
  • Alerts: lists all player interactions (Friend Requests, Party Invites, Club Invites). By the way, Clubs are now Cross-Platform, too.

Other changes in the update includes:

  • Extra Mode playable in Free Play (Dropshot, Hoops, Snowy Day, Rumble);
  • Weekly Wins are displayed on the XP screen following each game;
  • Competitive Season 9 rewards

Finally, Psyonix has announced that the upcoming in-game event announced in the latest Roadmap and planned for the February update has been cancelled, because the team instead chose to focus on another in-game event scheduled for later this year.

As compensation, there will be a special weekend with Double XP and Double Painted drop-rated from March 7th to March 11th.

The patch notes for this Rocket League update will be added to this page as soon as they’re available.
