Psyonix has announced through the official blog from Rocket League that the game will receive a new 2v2 mode in tournaments and other game modes starting next week. And it is that on August 11 a new season with new content will be released, although what has attracted the most attention is this new one in pairs.
According to Rocket League designer Grady Standard, this was one of the most repeated requests in the game’s history. Since the game’s launch it has been played in 3v3 matches, but many were asking for a tag team mode for a variety of reasons.
The first is that it is easier to find a departure, the second is that it adds variety and the third is that it is easier to agree with another person than with two others. In this way, Rocket League becomes a cooperative title in pairs that can even be enlisted in official tournaments.
In fact, tournaments will also change a bit, along with their interface. The important thing is that the game modes Hoops, Snow Day, Dropshot and Rumble will also have an official competitive version and that initially they will give us prizes, but they will not negatively affect the tournament rank.
In addition, Psyonix announced that instead of having 78 weekly tournaments, there will be a total of 143. So there will be almost double the chances of enjoying an online tournament from home and becoming champion.
And it is that apparently the study wants to continue focusing on this aspect of the game, the game interface will highlight the option of tournaments and your rank. So we should prepare for a strong investment in Esports, and more after Epic Games will buy the studio.
