Neon Night Celebrates The Music of Rocket LeagueJan 20, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsBlog:https://www.rocketleague.com/news/neon-nights-celebrates-the-music-of-rocket-league/ Cars have always been the main event in Rocket League, but a strong second is the game’s musical legacy. To celebrate our ever-evolving soundtrack, we’re introducing a new in-game event called Neon Nights that includes exciting Challenges, Golden Moons, a chaotic LTM, and unlockable Items featuring the immortal space princess GRIMES. In collaboration with GRIMES' upcoming space opera, a super-intelligent deep space AI will begin transmitting Challenges directly into your life-sim, allowing you to unlock GRIMES-themed items. If our calculations are correct, they should arrive on Earth Wednesday, Jan. 26 at 9 a.m. PST (5 p.m. UTC)! You’ll be ready to join the machines with the Gravitator and Space Queen Toppers, Braided Trail, GRIMES Decal, GRIMES Wheels, and GRIMES Player Banner. We’re also remixing some old favorites with the Fireworks (Multichrome) Universal Decal and Uncanny Boost. The future has arrived in force, but you’ll have a chance to showcase your humanity and unlock two new Player Anthems from GRIMES' upcoming album: "Player of Games" and "Shinigami Eyes." And speaking of AI, it seems that aimbots have taken over the Rocket Labs Arenas! Jump into a wild match of Heatseeker Ricochet and go head-to-head in this chaotic LTM. Throughout Neon Nights, you’ll also get a chance to earn Golden Moons, which unlock a mix of classic items from the Impact, Nitro, and Overdrive Item Series. Golden Moons work just like Golden Gifts from Frosty Fest. Complete the Challenge up to five times to earn Golden Moons, then open them in your Inventory to unlock items! And finally, in celebration of Lunar New Year, the Rocket League team wishes everyone a 2022 filled with happiness, prosperity, and longevity. We’re also offering the Year of the Tiger Free Bundle in the Item Shop featuring the fearless Tiny Tiger Topper and Tyger Decal. Neon Nights will be bumping from Jan. 26 to Feb. 8, so sit back, buckle up, and pre-save “Shinigami Eyes” HERE!New Rocket League Event - Neon Nights - features GRIMES cosmetics and launches January 26Jan 20, 2022 - VG247Rocket League players are soon about to see the Genesis of a new in-game event. Neon Nights, which is coming to the game on January 26, will allow players to unlock a range of cosmetics exclusive to the event. You’ll have to be quick though, as it will be phased out of the game on February 8. The theme of this limited-time activity is GRIMES - the electronic pop artist who has collaborated with Psyonix for Neon Nights. As such, all the unlockables present are themed around the artist - making it a must-attend affair. These include “Player of Games” and “Shinigami Eyes” player anthems, GRIMES-themed toppers, and more. Alongside this event, the chaotic heatseeker ricochet mode will return. In this mode, every hit on the ball will soar towards the opposing team’s goal. On top of that, as hits on the ball continue without a goal being scored, the speed of the ball significantly increases the speed of the ball. These combined lead to hectic games unlike anything else in Rocket League right now.

Rainbow Six Siege, PUBG, Warframe, Fortnite - the list of the biggest and best PC games getting into the Halloween spirit goes on. Now, Psynoix has unveiled its plans for Rocket League's own October bash, with the game's Haunted Hallows event kicking off tomorrow and bringing Batman, a themed limited-time mode, and more along for the ride. Rocket League Halloween - the 2021 edition - features a collaboration with Warner Brothers and DC Comics to bring a lot of Batman-themed stuff to the game. First up, there are new Haunted Hallows event challenges that'll offer unlockable supervillain-style items like some Joker and "Gotham's finest" decals, Harley Quinn wheels and topper, a boost themed on Poison Ivy, and so on. Rocket League's Rumble game mode is getting some tweaks to turn it into a Gotham City Rumble, with power-ups now being Batman (and Batman baddie) themed. This restyling lets players use the Joker's boxing glove, Harley's signature hammer (which swaps in for the boot), and Poison Ivy's vines, which replace the mode's grappling hook. Elsewhere, the game's getting a new limited-time arena - a Gotham Night variant of Beckwith Park - which has been hijacked by Gotham City's supervillains, as its theme reflects.

But positive word-of-mouth resulted in the game quickly exploding in popularity. And by the end of its first month on Steam, Rocket League saw its playerbase spike up to an average of 12.8k players per hour. Since then, Rocket League has shown no signs of slowing down with the playerbase continuing to increase. And now, Rocket League is celebrating its second year on Steam with a current average of 39k players per hour – a number that’s twenty times the game’s debut playerbase and that keeps it in Steam’s daily top 10 most played list. [caption id="attachment_276892" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Rocket League's Average Players per Hour via GitHyp[/caption] Most recently, the developers at Psyonix discounted Rocket League by 40% during the Steam Summer Sale -- reducing the price from $19.99 to $11.99 -- which they've done multiple times since the game's release. However, it was actually the dev’s big Year 2 update featuring a new map, Rick and Morty content, and the first-ever double drop-rate weekend that resulted in a 28% increase in players right after the sale. Rocket League’s constant updates and lack of competition are two of the biggest factors attributed to its player gains. Aside from Psyonix’s own previous game on PlayStation 3, 2008’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, there’s nothing quite like Rocket League to challenge it and steal away players. And until there is, Rocket League’s playerbase is on track to continue increasing on Steam with the devs already announcing tons of new content on the way.
