Rocket League Anniversary Event PS4 PlayStation 4

Time sure does fly when you're smacking a giant ball around with rocket-propelled cars wearing hats. Rocket League is three years old this week, but its predecessor, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, is turning 10. As you might expect, Psyonix is looking to celebrate both birthdays with an in-game Anniversary Event starting next week.

From 9th to 23rd July, a brand new arena named "Throwback" will be thrown into an Anniversary 3v3 playlist. This level is a callback to the design of the original game's arenas, featuring goals set further into the pitch and a lighter ball, which should please fans of SARPBC. Seriously, who was responsible for that name?

Playing matches online during the Anniversary Event will earn you Balloons, which give you special anniversary-themed cosmetic items. You can also redeem them for up to 10 Golden Eggs, which you can crack open for a random selection of special items.

Will you be hopping into Rocket League next week for its Anniversary Event? Blow out the candles and make a wish in the comments below.
