Rocket League married arcade driving to physics-based footie nearly five years ago on PlayStation 4, and it took the community by storm. The rest is history, and the game is still going strong as ever thanks to excellent post-launch support. To help celebrate the game's upcoming milestone, developer Psyonix is holding a special fifth anniversary event in the game, starting tomorrow, 30th June.
The event will go on for two weeks and will of course introduce a raft of new cosmetic items to earn. With balloons collected from playing matches, you can redeem these in the store for new bits and pieces inspired by Psyonix and Rocket League itself.
In addition, two limited time modes will be introduced. Spike Rush, which sees the ball stick to the spikes on all cars, and 2v2 Heatseeker, which turns Rocket League into more a game of Pong than soccer, will be available in playlists during the two-week period.
