Rocket League celebrates its Birthday with an Anniversary Event

Rocket League is three years old and Psyonix are throwing an in-game party for its player base. Starting on July 9th and running through to July 23, this anniversary event will work a bit differently to the usual in-game Events. For starters, there is a new 3v3 ‘Anniversary’ Playlist to the Casual Playlists page, featuring an inspired ‘Throwback Stadium’ that veteran SARPBC players may recognize! The goal layout, in particular, is a departure from the modern goal positions seen in the rest of Rocket League’s Arenas, but it does harken back to the old-school days of Battle-Cars, which should tickle the old nostalgia feels quite nicely.

There will be no Event Crates this time either, with all of the new items available by redeeming SARPBC 10th Anniversary-themed ‘Balloons,’ which are earned by playing matches online.

Along with new items up for grabs, you’ll also be able to redeem Balloons for a new type of Anniversary surprise! These ‘Golden Eggs’ do not require a Key or Decryptor to unlock, so just crack up to ten of ‘em open to find one of over 60 possible Customization Items from the retired Champions Series Crates.
