This week in racing game news:
“Rocket League” is still going strong after 7 years
It seems almost unbelievable, but as of July 7, “Rocket League” has been around for 7 years. It also happens to be in the middle of Season 7, though this is just a happy coincidence, as they did reset the seasons when the game went free-to-play in 2020. To celebrate the occasion, the game will be re-introducing 2 fan-favorite limited time modes; Heatseeker (July 6 – 13) and Knockout (July 13 – 19). There will also be limited time Birthday Ball challenges to complete and celebratory Titanium White Fennec and Fancy Formal Fennec Decal items available for purchase in the item shop. Last but not least, players will be able to earn in-game Golden Eggs (essentially just free loot boxes) to unlock items from the first 4 Champions Series. Planning on celebrating the anniversary? Let us know in the comments.
