Rocket League fans, especially those who have unfinished business with Season 2 or find themselves lagging behind the ranked grind, will be happy to know that Psyonix has officially extended the current season’s competitive play by a month. Rocket League Season 2 will now conclude on April 7, 2021, giving players sufficient time to unlock and obtain the new set of Competitive Rewards.
The new Competitive Rewards in question revolve around boosts, with these being the latest reward to end the season. Depending on where a player’s rank is at, Psyonix added a maximum of 8 unique boosts to Rocket League—from Bronze I to Supersonic Legend.
For the hardcore players out there, there will be additional rewards for those who are able to reach Grand Champion and Supersonic Legend in the different game types, namely Competitive, Rumble, Hoops, Snow Day, and Dropshot.
For those who may not be familiar, Rocket League is a unique video game because players take control of a variety of vehicles and play soccer—yes, that’s right. Developed by Psyonix, the game was initially released in 2015 for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4. Psyonix was eventually acquired by Epic Games, which allowed Rocket League to receive even more support compared to when Psyonix was only the publisher.
Now, the vehicular soccer video game is in its second season, which began December of last year. This latest season brought over 70 tiers of cosmetic items for players to unlock, along with a brand-new season of competitive play. Player Anthems were also introduced in Season 2, as well as customization options for wheels, paint jobs, and even decals.
In January, Rocket League finally offered decal options for the Fennec, which definitely got fans excited. That being said, Psyonix didn’t mention if this extension will also include the Rocket Pass. Rocket League became a free-to-play title some time during the summer of last year, which is also the same time when the Rocket Pass was introduced to the game.
Hopefully, Psyonix will also give an extension to those players who hold this season’s battle pass, only to make things fair. After all, we’re sure that there are multiple Rocket League players out there who are also still behind in the Rocket Pass and need more time to catch up.
