'Rocket League' Season 4 Will Add 2v2 And Extra Modes Competitive Tournaments

by Rainier on Aug. 5, 2021 @ 3:59 p.m. PDT

Rocket League is a fast-paced action-sports game featuring amazing physics, crazy aerial action, and compelling multiplayer combat.

The sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League expands on its successful pedigree with improved graphics and physics systems, a robust new single-player campaign, considerable customization options, and a fully-charged multiplayer game geared for a next-generation action-sports experience.

Rocket League is a futuristic action-sports game where players pilot rocket-powered vehicles in an enhanced version of soccer by driving their vehicles into the ball and other players in a variety of arenas. Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions between cars and the ball, where mass and momentum determine how hard balls and cars hit each other, creating a unique and visceral playing experience.

Rocket League Season 3 is ending on August 11, which means Season 4 is on the horizon.

With the start of Season 4, the Tournaments feature is adding 2v2 and Extra Modes Competitive Tournaments!

Expanding the Competitive Tournaments Schedule in Season 4

2v2 Tournaments are here, and will function just like 3v3 Tournaments. Simply join a Competitive Tournament either alone or with a teammate to enter into a 32-team bracket, and climb your way to victory! With new Tournaments being added to the daily schedule, we didn't want to simply replace any existing 3v3 Tournaments. So, the daily schedule of Competitive Tournaments is expanding to include more Tournaments to join in each region! We will be adding between eight and 13 additional tournaments a week in every region. Check out the schedule each day to see which Tournament is best for you and your team. 

Expanding the number of tournaments each day means we can add different kinds of Tournaments to the schedule, such as Extra Mode Tournaments. The featured Extra Mode can change every day, so be sure to look at the schedule each day for Tournaments in Rumble, Hoops, Snow Day, and Dropshot! Teams will enter Extra Mode Tournaments at their Tournament Rank, but Tournament Ranks will not be affected by performance in Extra Mode Tournaments. However, players will still receive Tournament Credits and Tournament Winner Titles from these Tournaments.

We'll be keeping a close eye on the impact in these newly added time slots and modes, and will adjust the schedule if necessary. 

Updated Tournaments Interface

Along with an expanded schedule for Competitive Tournaments, Season 4 is also coming with an updated look for the Tournaments History tab. This new U.I. will show a log of your Competitive Tournaments history, including when it was entered, how you placed, and the Rank of the Tournament. Speaking of Ranks, your Tournament Rank will now be displayed on the Tournament home screen.
