Psyonix, the masterminds behind the incredibly popular Rocket League, have shed some light on some new features surrounding in-game tournaments. The tournaments, which are free to join, are being revamped and the developer has explained in a blog post what fans can expect. From competitive tournaments that will pit players against each other of the same rank to get rewards, to the addition of Tournament Credits for winning, Rocket League players will soon have another reason to jump back in. Here are some excerpts from the blog, but you can read the whole blog post here should you wish to.
Players will soon be able to sign up for Competitive Tournaments, a new ranked mode within Tournaments that pits you against teams of similar skill to earn rewards. Each region has multiple Competitive Tournaments scheduled each day, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to compete. You can sign up from the revamped Tournaments Menu that shows the daily schedule for your region.
Once a Competitive Tournament begins, we generate 32-team, single-elimination brackets based on each team’s skill. Teams will play one match each round until the Semifinals and Finals, which are best of three. Teams that lose in the first round (or show up after the Tournament start time) can join a “Second Chance” bracket for another try at victory.
According to the blog post, the update for the new features will go live later this summer.
Never bought the game, but still love playing it when my homie comes over and brings it with him, and now this might easily turn out to be the best free to play game out there.
