Rocket League gets tested with free Portal items tomorrow

For science. For sports. For science AND sports!


Sports and science are two worlds that often don't mix. (Not directly, anyway. The ESPN show, Sport Science is actually quite fascinating.) But that's what's about to happen, now that discarded testing items from Valve's Portal are making their way into Rocket League.

Starting tomorrow, players will be able to pick up the following items as drops:

  • Cake (Topper)
  • Conversion Gel (Rocket Trail)
  • Propulsion Gel (Rocket Trail)
  • Repulsion Gel (Rocket Trail)
  • Aperture Laboratories (Antenna)
  • Cake Sticker (Antenna)
  • Companion Cube (Antenna)
  • Personality Core (Antenna)
  • PotatOS (Antenna)

Players can earn any of these items, regardless of whether they win or lose a Rocket League session. It's all a luck of the draw. Look for these free items to make their way into Rocket League tomorrow. You monster.
