Rocket League's 3rd Birthday

It’s been more than 1000 days since we first released Rocket League on July 7, 2015, and thanks to YOU, our avid community, we’ve welcomed even more fervent players to our ever-growing soccer-meets-driving video game. What started as a small passion project and sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, has turned into a monster success; surpassing our wildest dreams and even moving beyond what we had expected coming off of last year’s big “two-year” celebration!

It’s crazy to think that it was 10 years ago this coming October that SARPBC first came to PlayStation 3 and that three years have passed since Rocket League forever changed our lives for the better (and we hope it’s changed yours’ for the better too); but here we are – 46 million players strong, with the game readily available on four major platforms with a free-to-play version scheduled for release in China later this year. More than 2.5 Billion games of Rocket League have been played in its lifetime (that’s up more than a BILLION over last year!) and we have so many possible customization combinations in the game, that we stopped publicly counting at “hundreds of trillions” because the number is so big, it almost sounds made up (but it isn’t).

Normally with this anniversary post, we point out all of the things we have planned for the rest of the year, but we’ve heard your requests for more regular information and have tried to keep you up to date on a much more regular basis prior to posting this – so be sure to check out ourRocket League Roadmap right here (wow, that’s a lot of alliteration) along with our recent posts on our upcoming Rocket Pass and incoming changes to XP and Level Progress for the full story. If you have friends on Xbox or Steam who haven’t played Rocket League yet, we’re having a Free Weekend starting July 5 thru July 9 and a special Third Anniversary / SARPBC 10th Anniversary event July 9 thru July 23 that will give you all sorts of cool limited-time items and even a Throwback stadium inspired by the original Battle-Cars!

If you want to celebrate Rocket League with us in the real world, you can do that too in our hometown of San Diego, California at Petco Park – where we’ll be hosting a FREE birthday bash on July 19 from 3pm to 9pm. We have all sorts of partners, friends, and colleagues scheduled to appear, including Greg Miller and the crew from Kinda Funny, WWE Superstars Xavier Woods and Becky Lynch, Pro players from North America and Europe, and plenty more!

Oh, and speaking of Rocket League pros, the last year has been an amazing one for Rocket League Esports with more coolness on the horizon. The RLCS Season 4 World Championship in Washington D.C. and Season 5 World Championship in London were seen by MILLIONS of viewers all over the world, while the Universal Open has now returned along with new Psyonix-sponsored community events like The Climb,  to bring our game to even more players, teams, and audiences than ever before! And while we’re not officially announcing anything just yet, we CAN tell you that the future of Rocket League Esports is brighter than ever – as the next year of RLE will bring higher prize pools, more opportunities for players of all skill levels, and a much more holistic approach to our Worldwide esports program – both in-game and out. We’re excited to start sharing those plans with you in the coming months, so stay tuned for more soon!

As always, we can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support and passion for our game. YOU make this possible and for that we are truly grateful, humbled, and appreciative. Here’s to another great year of Rocket League and here’s to another great year spent playing and enjoying gaming with you.

Respectfully,

Psyonix

P.S. Come on now, you didn’t think we’d post our yearly celebration blog without an updated infographic did you? It’s tradition! Enjoy!

Need more eggs to collect. 10 eggs is not enough, especially as Switch owners never got the champion series crates. Or you guys could just add those items in the rocket pass.

They basically give you ten keys for crates that don't exist anymore, but you don't need the crates. Previously the events would give you 3 to 5 "keys" to open up crates, albeit you couldn't trade these items. I'd say this is a massive improvement.

Please use the egg idea in other events. It is so much better than decryptors
