Seven years going strong
Rocket League’s Birthday Ball event starts today to celebrate the game’s seventh anniversary and will run until July 19. It promises new Event Challenges and Rewards alongside two Limited Time Modes, anniversary items, and Golden Eggs.
We’ll start with the Event Challenges, which will offer Credits as rewards for the first time in the game’s history. You can snag up to 300 by completing numerous tasks.
You can also earn other goodies. They include the Golden Goat Title, Precious Metal Avatar Border, and Golden Eggs. The Golden Eggs will unlock items from Champions Series 1-4 when they’re cracked open.
As for Limited Time Modes, July 6 – July 13 will see Heatseeker become available. If you’re unfamiliar, this mode sees the ball speeding up each time it gets hit. Essentially, it somehow manages to make Rocket League more hectic than usual.
Then, from July 13 – July 19, you can enjoy a spot of Knockout. In this mode, you will aim to be the last car standing by knocking your opponents into Hazards or outside of the Safezone.
Finally, Rocket League’s Birthday Ball event wouldn’t be complete without some anniversary-themed items. Until July 19 you can get The Fennec (Titanium White) Car, Fancy Formal Decal (Fennec), Spyder: Anniversary Edition Wheels, and Top Hat.
