As we all are well aware, Rocket League has been a mega success since its launch last Summer, rolling to highs on PSN and Steam and adding in XBL earlier this year to their fanbase. I haven’t kept secret what I think of the game, either. I love it. It’s incredibly addicting and fun on so many levels. The amount of free and paid content that keeps being pumped into the game (franchise?) since the beginning is a huge win for both sides and I hope it doesn’t stop any time soon. The recent Rumble mode has been a huge game-changer (literally), and the only complaint I have with it is that there were no Achievements and Trophies associated. It’s a brand new mode, it should have some in my opinion. Fingers crossed this smaller update has some like the Neo Tokyo update did. Either way, I’ll be excited to be “swimming” around scoring goals next month.
Either way, I’ll be excited to be “swimming” around scoring goals next month. It looks to me that they’re channeling (pun not intended) BioShock and Rapture with the look of this update, so it would have been cool to tie it in to the recent BioShock Remasters that came out this month. Maybe down the line we’ll get some toppers and flags that don’t cost the sweat of our brow. A girl can dream.
