Rocket League cross-platform play available in July or August

Rocket League cross-platform support will head to the game in a couple months, developer Psyonix has confirmed.

Cross-platform play will be available as part of the game’s Summer Feature Update, planned for July or August of this year. Players will be able to register a unique in-game ID that acts as an identifier. That then can be used to find friends on other platforms, then party up and play together online.

The support is only a small part of the update — full patch notes are below.

Rocket League Summer Feature Update notes

Cross-Platform Friends & Parties

  • Register an in-game ID that is a combination of a name with a unique code, like Scarab#7777
  • Add friends from other platforms by entering their ID into the new, in-game friends list
  • Party up with your new cross-platform friends and play online!

Progression 2.0

Leveling Updates
  • We’re removing the level cap of 75 and re-balancing the entire level-up curve. Levels will take a fixed amount of XP to earn instead of becoming exponentially longer as you level up.
  • You’ll be converted to a new level appropriate for how much you’ve played Rocket League in your career.
  • Leveling up grants you an Uncommon, Rare, Very Rare, or Import item (instead of these drops being randomly-timed as they are currently)
  • You can earn new Titles and Banners at level 100 and beyond to show off your status
XP Updates
  • As part of the leveling updates, XP is going to become Online-only
  • XP will now be based on Time Played in matches in addition to your Score.
    • New XP Mechanics!
    • Match Completion Bonus (for finishing games)
    • Consecutive Games Bonus (for staying in Casual lobbies)
    • Party Bonus (for playing with friends)
    • Leaver Penalty (to punish quitters in all modes)
    • Double XP Weekends
    • And more!

We’ll let you know when to expect the update as time draws closer.

Rocket League is available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch. Cross-play will work between PC & PS4, or PC, Switch & Xbox One; find out more about the reasons for those combinations here.
