In a post on their blog, Rocket League developer Psyonix. announced what special enhancements are coming to the vehicular soccer video game on the recently released Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles.
Rocket League players will enjoy faster game load times and improved split-screen performance on both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. Plus, there are special enhancements coming to Rocket League depending on which Xbox console you own. Additionally, there will be a future Rocket League content update which will add a new “Video Quality” setting within the Video tab of the Settings menu, which will allow users to change video settings based on Quality vs. Performance.
When using the “Quality” setting, Rocket League is available to play at 4K resolution at 60 FPS with HDR on the Xbox Series X. On the Xbox Series S, you can play Rocket League at 1080p resolution at 60 FPS with HDR. If you choose “performance” to play Rocket League on either next-generation Xbox console, you will be able to play Rocket League at 120 FPS, but at 70% of the maximum capable resolution available on either Xbox console.
Keep in mind, you will need a 4K and HDR display that is capable of handling 120 FPS at the appropriate resolution for you to take advantage of these upcoming Rocket League features. For PlayStation 5 owners, there will be no option available for “Quality vs. Performance,” and Rocket League will only be available at 4K resolution (checkerboard) at 60 FPS with HDR.
Rocket League is now free-to-play on all platforms and it also supports crossplay multiplayer and cross-progression. You can download the game on your console using the link below.
