In the Spring Roadmap, Psyonix detailed the new update schedule and the release dates of new features (tournament, QoL elements, connection quality information, and more). Today, they expanded on the future of alternate game modes and the status of updates to previously released features.
- Future updates (ex. tournaments, progressions) will focus on the core soccar game mode.
- Competitive play for previously released alternate game modes (Dropshot, Hoops, Rumble, and Snow Day) is being discussed.
- Features are prioritized by the amount of players who benefit.
Outside of roadmap updates, Psyonix also announced a new line of light-up clip-on toys, which will be released in March. These new toys come after the success of the pull-back racers that released last year.
After last year's very successful Beyond the Summit style Gold Rush event, the community run and funded venture will take place again this weekend with Gold Rush 2. With sponsorship from Twitch and Red Bull, expect Gold Rush 2 to be one of the biggest community events of the year!
