'Rocket League' Celebrates 7th Anniversary With Birthday Ball Event

by Rainier on July 1, 2022 @ 12:08 p.m. PDT

Rocket League is a fast-paced action-sports game featuring amazing physics, crazy aerial action, and compelling multiplayer combat.

The sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League expands on its successful pedigree with improved graphics and physics systems, a robust new single-player campaign, considerable customization options, and a fully-charged multiplayer game geared for a next-generation action-sports experience.

Rocket League is a futuristic action-sports game where players pilot rocket-powered vehicles in an enhanced version of soccer by driving their vehicles into the ball and other players in a variety of arenas. Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions between cars and the ball, where mass and momentum determine how hard balls and cars hit each other, creating a unique and visceral playing experience.

Has it really been seven years already? Guess it’s finally time to face the music… and celebrate our anniversary with a new LTE, Birthday Ball! The festivities will include two weeks of fun with Heatseeker and Knockout LTMs, elegant Anniversary outfits available in the Item ShopBirthday Ball Challenges and rewards, plus the ultimate gift exchange: Golden Eggs

The celebrations begin July 6! 


WEEK 1 - 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.

WEEK 2 - Knockout returns July 13 - 19! Use the unique Attack, Block, and Grab mechanics to fling players out of the QuadronCarbon, and Calavera Arenas. If you need a refresher, here’s a quick run-through. Just remember, the last car standing wins.


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.


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!


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!
