It'll be a real ball!
7 years of Rocket League…can you believe it? While it took awhile for the game to make its way to Nintendo fans, we’ve still gotten to enjoy Rocket League for a handful of years on Switch. That means we get to be part of the 7-year celebration, which welcomes a new limited-time event, Birthday Ball!
The Birthday Ball festivities will include two weeks of fun with Heatseeker and Knockout LTMs, elegant Anniversary outfits available in the Item Shop, Birthday Ball Challenges and rewards, plus the ultimate gift exchange: Golden Eggs. All the celebratory action kicks off July 6th, and runs to July 19th, 2022.
Here’s how the Birthday Ball action will play out, along with the goodies you can look forward to.
Jump into a chaotic match of 2v2 Heatseeker and go head-to-head July 6 - 13. This crowd-favorite LTM gives the ball special homing abilities, so it will always gravitate towards your opponent’s goal.
Knockout returns July 13 - 19! Use the unique Attack, Block, and Grab mechanics to fling players out of the Quadron, Carbon, and Calavera Arenas. If you need a refresher, here’s a quick run-through. Just remember, the last car standing wins.
BIRTHDAY BALL CHALLENGES
This anniversary isn’t just about us; it’s about the players and community who helped grow Rocket League over the past seven years. Here’s to you! As a token of thanks, finishing all the Birthday Ball Challenges will net players a total of 300 Credits!
In addition to credits, players will earn the Golden Goat Player Banner and Precious Metal Avatar Border when completing Challenges. Other challenges will reward players with timeless rewards like an Import Item Drop or 20,000 XP.
WEAR YOUR BIRTHDAY BEST
The Item Shop will be selling dapper new Anniversary items, so suit up for merrymaking with the Titanium White Fennec and Fancy Formal Fennec Decal!
In the spirit of Season 7, two new golden items will also be available. Flash your cash with the Spyder: Anniversary Edition Wheels or Top Hat: Anniversary Edition Topper. These glorious golden Items will pair perfectly with your newest Rocket Pass rewards!
THE GIFT OF GOLDEN EGGS
What’s a birthday without presents? Throughout Birthday Ball, players can earn Golden Eggs to unlock Items from the Champions Series 1-4. Golden Eggs work just like previous Golden rewards—complete the Challenge up to five times to earn Golden Eggs, then open them in your Inventory to unlock items!
