Rocket League is getting a new party system
PsyNet is getting an upgrade.
The new party mode will be launched first on PC to fix bugs and glitches, while consoles will get a later release. This new party system implements PsyNet integration for players, meaning that parties will be set up through in-game. No longer will you need to go through Steam, Playstation Network, or Xbox Live. Playing with players cross-console will be much easier and will make gameplay less laggy. If you are a solo player and don’t care about the update, then no problem. With the update being pushed in-game, it won’t impact your gameplay.

Testing for the new PsyNet system hasn’t started yet, but once it does there will be no downloads to worry about. If there are any game-breaking bugs or glitches, Psyonix already stated they will immediately roll back the update to avoid any gameplay inturruptions. No date has been released yet for the new PsyNet.
Psyonix also hinted at new features that will be coming to Rocket League. There will be an in-game tournament system that is going to be tested via beta towards the end of the year. As well, Psyonix has already stated that there will be more in-game events like the past Halloween event.
“There’s a plan for a new Events System, which will introduce events available for a limited time. These events will reward a player with the chance to obtain more car customizations and a ‘Decryptor.’ The latter lets players open any unopened Rocket League Crates in their inventory without a key. There are no exact dates for the release, but expect them to come out after the autumn season. More details are to come, so stay tuned.”
