Rocket League Gets A Nice Boost On PS5 & Xbox Series X/S
As soon as you boot up your next-gen consoles, you can play a much prettier and smoother version of Rocket League.
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 blog post, 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 1344x756 resolution at 120fps with HDR. And on Series X, performance boosts Rocket League to 2688x1512 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.
