Rocket League Celebrates Five-Year Anniversary With In-Game Event

In celebrating five years since its launch, developer Psyonix is hosting an anniversary event inside Rocket League. The event brings some limited-time modes and unique items for you to participate in and earn on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The Fifth Anniversary Event started on June 30, which means one mode–Spike Rush–has already come and gone. However, the anniversary lasts for a full two weeks, meaning there are still two other LTMs you can play on all platforms. This includes the 2v2 Heatseeker mode, which runs until July 13, and the Redemption period (which allows you to earn any items you may have missed) that picks up immediately after and concludes on July 16.

In addition to the LTMs, you can head over to Rocket League’s Event Store to spend balloons that you accrue from online matches to purchase unique items such as antennas, toppers, wheels, and more. Golden Eggs, collectible items that contain unknown goodies, are back and now give you the chance to get items from the game’s Champions Series. You can check the images below to see the various earnable in-game items.
