Another crossover car is making it’s way to Rocket League, and this time, it’s the 007 Aston Martin from the hit spy franchise James Bond. Purchase the Aston Martin DB5 and you’ll get an engine audio, paint job, themed wheels and a decal, which unfortunately cannot be customized onto other cars and bodies. You can purchase it in the Item Shop for 1100 credits on July 29 for a limited time, but there will be more Bond-themed items throughout the year, so remain tuned!

Want to get better at Rocket League in an easy and understandable fashion? Want to hone and perfect your skills like a true Grand Champion? Well you’re in luck, because Psyonix just announced the Rocket League Academy series, a new collection of videos from SunlessKhan and the Rocket League team that will teach you everything you need to know on how to improve in Rocket League!
The series debuts tomorrow, April 22, 2021, but in the meantime, you can check out the reveal trailer below:
A while back, Microsoft announced some rather important changes coming to the Xbox Live Gold system which would allow free-to-play online games to no longer require this subscription to play. Well, this change finally went underway today, and 5 Xbox games (Apex Legends, Warframe, Fortnite, Rocket League and Roblox) now no longer require Xbox Live Gold to play!
This change will heavily benefit those who had difficulty maintaining their subscription, and those who were interested in one of the 5 games listed but didn’t consider purchasing the subscription. Xbox Live Gold is still available, and it includes a ton of perks for subscribers, including 2 free games per month and discounts on select games in the Microsoft Store.
Communication is a key part in any team-based online game, and since Rocket League is extremely teamwork-heavy, it makes sense that some form of commuting is necessary, especially with players who don’t own a mic. In this guide, we go over the basics of quick chat, how to use it, and how you can customize it.
So, for starters, quick chat is a feature where you can display a message/phrase in the chat section in-game. Some messages can be positive and nice, others can be passive-aggressive and sarcastic, and some can legitimately be funny. In the “Options” menu, you can find an area where you can customize your preset phrases, which are divided into 5 categories: Information, which allows you to tell your teammates what your strategies are and what position you’re taking, Compliments, which are positive messages praising someone’s play, Reactions, which are essentially basic messages like “Okay” and “Wow”, Apologies, which allow you to apologize for any mistake you made during the game, Post-Game, which are messages said after the game, and Pre-Game, which is exactly the opposite.
You can also type freely if you want to, however, that does waste game time, as it’s a lot easier to just use some preset phrases. This video down below explains it perfectly.
MVP is a difficult but honorable role to earn in Psyonix’s Rocket League, and can earn you a serious amount of points. Not only that, but it can also help complete challenges and will certainly make you a considerable threat on the field, so in this guide, we go over some tips to easily get MVP in a Rocket League match.
What Is MVP?
MVP stands for “Most Valuable Player” and is a term commonly used in sports, particularly in basketball. In Rocket League, the MVP role represents the player in the winning team who helped and contributed to the victory the most out of their team. It’s not just who scored the most goals – it’s who was the most active and participative among the winning team. he MVP role isn’t available in 1v1 games.
- Aggressiveness is key. Sure, saves and being a goalie may earn you a good lot of points, but trying to score and playing an offensive role is going to boost you up to MVP status.
- Practice and learn some new strategies or perfect old ones.
- Teamwork is also very important. Try to use the communication system the game offers to coordinate and inform your team what you’re doing.
- Going after enemy players works too. You can crash into them or blow them up, which will give them a slight delay.
- Don’t focus too much on getting MVP or the rewards. Play how you usually do, taking these tips in mind of course, and try to improve as a player.
It’s been quite some time since the first Llamarama event happened in Rocket League, back when the game was released in its free-to-play state. That event was a crossover with Fortnite and Rocket League, with themed cosmetics for both games, and released to coincide with Rocket League’s first season. Well, not their first season. They rebooted themselves in 2020. It’s complicated. Anyways, Season 3 of Rocket League’s slated for launch on April 7, and before the season launches, Epic and Psyonix are collaborating for another crossover! Here are the challenges and rewards.

I’ve been playing Rocket League a lot more lately, so I decided to show off a small list of the redeemable codes in the game and how to redeem them. Obviously, I will only show these that are available, and the actual rewards you can redeem aren’t anything amazing. Just fun little items you can equip and show off on the field.
How To Access Codes In Rocket League
Redeeming codes in Rocket League is very simple. First, you must go to the options tab. From there, head towards the extras section, where you’ll find the ability to redeem codes.
popcorn | Popcorn Rocket Boost

These are all the codes we have! We will update the post with new codes soon!
