Developer Psyonix has revealed that Rocket League will get some improvements on Xbox Series X|S and PS5, which went live alongside the release of Microsoft and Sony’s next-gen consoles. It’s a pretty nice boost, too.
According to a , on both the Xbox Series X|S and PS5, Rocket League will have “significantly faster load times and improved splitscreen performance.” Additionally, Rocket League on PS5 plays at 4K resolution at 60fps with HDR. Xbox Series S is 1080p resolution at 60fps with HDR, and Xbox Series X is 4K resolution at 60fps with HDR.
Though it wasn’t ready for the launch of Xbox Series X|S, both consoles will support a new feature for Rocket League that’s coming “later this year.” This update is not scheduled for PS5.
At some point in 2020, Rocket League will get a new Video Quality setting on Xbox Series X|S, allowing you to adjust the game for either quality or performance. The aforementioned settings will be quality mode. Meanwhile, on performance, Rocket League on Series S will play at 1344×756 resolution at 120fps with HDR. And on Series X, performance boosts Rocket League to 2688×1512 resolution at 120fps with HDR.
Rocket League is available for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game is now free-to-play. Provided your Rocket League account is hooked up to your Epic Games account, your save data–including Rocket Pass progress and inventory–will stick with you when you move from current-gen to next-gen. This includes moving from Xbox One to PS5 or from PS4 to Xbox Series X|S.
