Rocket League Announces Tournaments Update


How would you like to create tournaments in Rocket League without leaving the game? An upcoming update will allow you to do just that. When is it coming?

Psyonix revealed the Tournaments update today (it won’t be here for a couple weeks, but it’s been revealed). The feature was beta-tested on the PC version last month. As you’ll see in the video below, you can set up tournaments with a menu of settings similar to setting up matches. Each tournament can be adjusted with its own unique bracket size, series length, and competitive rank requirements. Once your tournament is live, other players can join in through the browser.

The update will also do more than add tournaments. Here’s the bullet list Psyonix gave us….

  • Connection Quality Information – New notification icons that will signal the types of online connection issues during online matches to better troubleshoot issues
  • Enhanced Garage Options – New item stacking, filtering, searching, and sorting options
  • Expanded Team Customization – More shades have been added to the primary color palette for Battle-Cars and players will now have the choice to “Equip to Blue” and “Equip to Orange” for painted car bodies
  • Audio Improvements – Crowd audio has been tweaked to better react to saves, goals, and important plays, and the soundtrack will now be available to play during online and offline matches
  • Samurai Battle-Car – New Import Battle-Car available as a limited-drop inside the new Triumph Crate

Watch for the Tournaments Update on all platforms April 3, though at this early date Psyonix warns that “first party certifications” could potentially delay it. It depends on the console and how cooperative its masters are.
