Rocket League is looking to expand in more ways than one in the months ahead. On Wednesday, the folks at Psyonix outlined what's ahead for the rocket-powered sports racing game by revealing its full Fall 2018 roadmap.

Before revealing what's coming, Psyonix revealed what isn't coming in the next few months: RocketID. The RocketID was slated to release before the end of the year, but Psyonix hit the best kind of delay, with Sony's recent announcement of extended cross-play. Psyonix is looking to implement new changes to the upcoming RocketID feature, with the idea of full cross-play in mind. So far, PlayStation has only offered extended cross-play for Fortnite, so there's nothing guaranteed for any other game at the moment. However, Psyonix has indicated that they will place a request for full cross-platform play with Sony.

As for what is coming, a new update estimated for early December will look to add Xbox One X support for owners of Microsoft's console. This will include 4K resolution at 60fps, along with HDR support. The December update will also see the launch of Rocket Pass #2, offering a new lineup of premium DLC. More details on both the Xbox One X enhancements and the Rocket Pass #2 contents are expected in the near future.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
