A new Rocket League update is live on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC alongside official patch notes, which reveal all of the new content, changes, and fixes being added to the game for the month of September and ahead of the game going free-to-play on September 23. At the moment of publishing, it’s unclear how big the download is from a file perspective, but as you can see via the patch notes below, it’s big in terms of what it does.
Dubbed, v1.79 update, the new update most notably adds Epic Games account linking and cross-platform progression, Menu and UI changes, and a new hitbox for the Merc. On top of this, if you’re on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Online will no longer be required to play online.
– NOTE: The new Tournaments system will be live with this release, but only a limited number of test Tournaments will be scheduled until we transition Rocket League to free to play. –
