Rocket League's Radical Summer is live

Bustin' makes me feel good

Join us for the biggest ’80s summer bash Rocket League has ever thrown! Radical Summer is now live, and it all starts with a totally awesome celebration of '80s Blockbusters.

The first phase of Radical Summer celebrates some of the most beloved franchises of the decade, starting with Ghostbusters, which is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this June. The Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car Pack Premium Licensed DLC includes the Ecto-1 Battle-Car, Ecto-1 Wheels, Slimer Topper, Proton Pack Boost, Ghostbusters Avatar Border and Player Banner, and the Stay Puft Goal Explosion. The Car Pack is now available for $1.99 USD (or regional equivalent).

Also try out the new limited-run Ghost Hunt mode! Two teams of three enter a spooky version of the Urban Central Arena and attempt to trap the ball with their proton stream power-ups in the Containment Zone. Ghost Hunt will be available throughout the Blockbusters phase of Radical Summer.

There are plenty of tubular in-game Event Items to earn throughout Radical Summer. The Blockbuster phase features items inspired by '80s movies like Back to the Future, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Goonies, and The Karate Kid. You can earn these items in the Event Store by redeeming Cassettes. Cassettes can be earned by playing Online Matches in Casual, Competitive, and Extra Playlists. Check out some of the rad event items below.

The Blockbusters Phase will last until July 1, when the extremely excellent celebration of ’80s cultures begins. The event store will refresh with new items for each phase of Radical Summer with the most choice 80s-inspired items. But, don't have a cow if you didn't get a chance to score your favorites. All three Event Stores from each phase will open for a short redemption period after Radical Summer ends in August.

Expect more info on the Culture and Television phases of Radical Summer very soon. Stay tuned, and start earning those Cassettes for some of the most radical items in Rocket League! Stay gnarly!

Psyonix announces "Radical Summer" for Rocket League

The Summer of nostalgia

You're totally invited to Radical Summer—a summer-long celebration of all things ’80s. Grab your aviator shades and mixtapes, and prepare to go back in time to experience the most righteous movies, television, and culture from the decade.

Radical Summer is an in-game event, kicking off on June 10. The 9-week event will feature free items, new Premium Licensed DLCs, limited-time game modes, and more! (shhh, it’s a secret)

This extremely choice event is split into three celebrations of the 1980s: Blockbusters, Culture, and Television. Each celebration lasts three weeks. Similar to previous events, play Online Matches to earn ‘Cassettes’ and redeem them for in-game, '80s-themed items all summer long. Radical Summer's Event Store will change for each phase of Radical Summer, bringing in new items for your Battle-Car. And don’t worry, at the end of the event, we’ll give you a week to redeem Cassettes for any items you may have missed.

You can't throw a summer bash without friends, and we're inviting the biggest '80s franchises to Rocket League. Here's every '80s franchise you can expect to see in Radical Summer:


Knight Rider

Back to the Future

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

The Goonies

Karate Kid

DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender


Plus, Golden Eggs are back as part of Radical Summer, and this time will contain items from Elevation, Victory, Turbo, and Nitro Crates. Up to five Golden Eggs can be acquired for each phase of the event.

Radical Summer will start and end with two new Premium Licensed DLC with the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and Knight Rider Car Packs.

Get ready to go ghost hunting in the Ecto-1. The Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car Pack will include a bunch of fan-favorite items from the iconic Ghostbusters, which is celebrating its 35th Anniversary, including the Ecto-1 Battle-Car, Ecto-1 Wheels, Proton Pack Rocket Boost, Slimer Topper, Ghostbusters Player Banner and Avatar Border, and the Stay Puft Goal Explosion.

K.I.T.T., the high-speed, talking futuristic car outfitted with high-tech gadgets and a personality of its own from the hit '80s show Knight Rider, is reporting for duty and will come as part of its own Car Pack later in Radical Summer!

The Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car Pack will be available for $1.99 (or regional equivalent) on June 10. Stay tuned for more info on the Knight Rider Car Pack later during Radical Summer.

The Radical Summer party starts on the field with three new limited-time game modes that will be featured individually throughout the event. To celebrate the arrival of Ghostbusters' Ecto-1 Battle-Car, jump into the new wickedly spooky Ghost Hunt Mode. Ghost Hunt, which will be featured in the Blockbusters phase of Radical Summer, is a 3v3 mode where each team uses their proton stream power-ups to try to trap the ghostly ball in your opponents' Containment Zone. Ghost hunt features new, scary lighting and ghostly sound effects on the Urban Central Arena and will be playable until July 1.

Kicking off Radical Summer's Culture phase will be the high-octane Spike Rush mode. In this 3v3 mode, each player has the Spike power-up from Rumble Mode that can be activated to carry the ball, and deactivated to pull off some wild psych outs. It all goes down on our Throwback Stadium Arena to commemorate Rocket League's fourth anniversary.

Hit the beaches of Salty Shores to close out Radical Summer in our Beach Ball Mode. Beach Ball Mode features 2v2 action with a larger ball, low ball gravity, and the Curveball mutator activated. So enjoy this sunny, feel-good mode that is worthy of a classic '80s beach volleyball montage.

Here are the start and end dates of Radical Summer's three event phases. Each phase will begin at 10 a.m. PDT (5 p.m. UTC) on their respective start dates:

'80s Blockbusters: June 10 - July 1

'80s Culture: July 1 - July 22

'80s Television July 22 - August 12

A game update will be ready for download today at 10:00 a.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. UTC) that will get everything ready for Radical Summer next week. We're excited to share everything that we've packed into this event. Stay tuned for even more info on the next phases of Radical Summer. Until then, stay rad!

Rocket League blog update - The making of Replay FX

Relive your best moments

Photo modes have become a mainstay in video games across a wide variety of genres over the past couple years. They give players an up-close look at every distinct detail that goes into the visuals of our favorite games, plus allow content creators to craft truly amazing, unique images. Rocket League's most recent update added a similar feature called Replay FX—a suite of controls that made it possible for fans to heavily edit the look of their best plays from the pitch.

Replay FX adds the ability to adjust the look of saved replays by adding filters, focus points, vignettes, and greenscreen effects that make the fan art possibilities endless. The controls are still in beta as this is the first time a feature of this type have been added to the game. The development team is still exploring how content creators are using these tools, what's working, and what can be added in the future. But, just because it's in beta doesn't mean it came together overnight.

Rocket League's Summer 2019 Roadmap

Wait a minute...the world championships are in my home state?!

It's hard to believe that we're almost to the halfway mark of 2019, but believe it you should, because it means that we're ready for a brand new Roadmap that sheds some light on the new features and improvements we're bringing to the game over the next several months.

Of course, you've probably already read this month's "Epic News," which is why we also want to assure you (and the rest of our community) that Rocket League will continue to be shaped by the same development team that it always has even if our family is getting quite a bit bigger. The game will also continue to be fueled and inspired by the passion and feedback of our dedicated playerbase just as it was before.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at what you can expect to see in the next few months of 2019!


Next month, we will kick off the biggest in-game event that Rocket League has ever had, featuring several limited-time events. While the event on the whole will share the same in-game currency for items that can be redeemed inside the event store, the items found in the event store itself will change as we move through different points in the promotion; giving you more in-game items to earn than ever before.

We know that players can sometimes earn more event currency than they sometimes use, so we're addressing that by adding XP Level-Up Packs in the event store as well (a Rocket League first)! That means that players will be able to redeem event currency for XP Level-Up Packs that grant 10 Tier Points for Rocket Pass -- allowing you to boost your Rocket Pass Tiers in a super-fast and super-convenient way!


The community has been asking us for quicker ways to party-up with strangers following a good match. That functionality will be coming later this year. Soon, you'll be able to easily party-up with teammates from the post-game screen.

Inventories are growing too, and that calls for better ways to organize all of your in-game items. We're happy to say that additional inventory management tools will also be added via a future update.

Finally, one of our long-term goals for 2019 and beyond is to make a number of under-the-hood, quality-of-life updates to our trading system. We’ll have more to share on that later this year.


The RLCS Season 7 World Championship at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ is just around the corner and tickets are selling fast. Get your tickets now to catch all the live action from the world's best Rocket League teams. Also, Competitive Season 10 ends on Monday, May 13, so make sure you fulfill your Season Reward Level wins at your rank to earn the appropriate goodies.

Stay tuned next month for the full reveal of our upcoming event. Plus, you can expect to see the aforementioned features (and more) later this year. For fans looking to find out more regarding what our acquisition by Epic Games means for Rocket League and Psyonix in the long-term -- there's nothing new to report just yet, but we'll keep you informed as soon as we have an update.

Rocket League's tenth Competitive Season will come to a close next month. That means it's time to reveal the upcoming Season Rewards. We're excited to announce that the rewards for Competitive Season 10 will be brand new Goal Explosions!

Competitive Season 10 will end, and Season 11 will begin, on May 13. Like previous Competitive Seasons, there will be unique reward for ranks Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Champion, and Grand Champion. For the first time, the Grand Champion Rank will have its own unique reward in addition to the the Season 10 Grand Champion Title.

In addition to the unique Grand Champion Rewards and Titles, Extra Mode Grand Champion Titles are returning for Season 10. Extra Mode Titles for the Grand Champion Rank debuted in Season 9 and will be back this season. See the full distribution breakdown below:

Bronze I or higher – Season 10 – Bronze Goal Explosion

Silver I or higher – Season 10 – Silver Goal Explosion + lower Goal Explosions

Gold I or higher – Season 10 – Gold Goal Explosion + lower Goal Explosions

Platinum I or higher – Season 10 – Platinum Goal Explosion + lower Goal Explosions

Diamond I or higher – Season 10 – Diamond Goal Explosion + lower Goal Explosions

Champion I or higher – Season 10 – Champion Goal Explosion + lower Goal Explosions

Competitive Grand Champion – ‘Season 10 – Grand Champion’ In-Game Title + Grand Champion Goal Explosion + all Season 10 Goal Explosions

You still have a few more weeks left in Season 10 to hit your goals. Remember, you have to complete your placement matches in a Competitive Playlist and fulfill the appropriate Season Reward Level in order to earn your rewards for Competitive Season 10. Competitive Season 11 will have the same soft reset that previous competitive seasons have had. You will need to complete 10 placement matches per Competitive Playlist to earn your rank, which will likely be near your previously held rank.

If you're still working on reaching that next rank, be sure to bring your A-game to get those wins before May 13 when Season 10 ends and Season 11, begins. As always, good luck and have fun!
