June (4): Trade-in system!

rare-items_blog-1650x880

June is looking to become the month where Rocket League changes it all. New features that were requested by the community are being implemented in this June update. And that excites us!

In the update you will be able to trade in your more uncommon  and rare items for a high-quality one. You can trade in 5 more uncommon items at a time to receive one high-quality on.

You can find these items in your Inventory menu. Also Rocket League explained that a player-to-player trading type of thing is in the works!

NOTE: In the interest of full disclosure, we plan to implement Player-to-Player Trading in a later update. Some items, like those with “Painted” or “Certified” attributes, may become much more valuable if you can trade them to other players.  The “Trade-In System” is designed to let you get rid of unwanted or duplicate items, but you should consider carefully what you trade now versus what you might want to keep for future player-trading opportunities.

For the full blogpost about what’s coming in the June update next to the trade-in system we refer you to the RocketLeagueGame website

#RLNews: Season 1 rewards!

It’s been a while since Rocket League did a #RLNews but today is a good day! More info about the ending of Season One and what items you will be getting!

If you haven’t ranked up yet to Bronze or higher, we suggest you do it right now. Only then you will be getting the special topper as seen above. The Topper will be in the color of your highest achieved rank. (solo, solo standard, 2v2)

You will receive this items once the next patch in February will arrive. This will automatically mean that season One will end with the patch update.

Item Qualities

Rocket League will also undergo a slight change when it comes to displaying items. Items will now be categorized in common (stock), Premium (paid DLC) and Limited (Special Events). With the new upcoming patch they will also introduce the Uncommon items. These items will be randomly awarded when you complete an online match in Rocket League. Rocket League promises new rare Toppers and Antenna’s for you to unlock.

Rocket League added to the upcoming Uncommon items update a small explanation:

One interesting thing to note is that the new “Uncommon Item’s” drop-rate won’t have a fixed percentage like the seasonal items do. Instead, your chances of getting an “Uncommon Item” increases the longer you play the game. After earning an Uncommon Item, the time then resets and you start all over again in your quest to get another one. This should give players who spend a lot of time playing some sweet new loot to accompany them along the way. — Rocket League

Also, Rocket League will share some new hot info on Friday the 22nd. We assume this will be about Season 2, new DLC and more info about what 2016 will bring us!
