The announcement of Rocket League’s new event comes just after another set of content was revealed when Psyonix revealed what all was included in the second pass for the game. Following the same format that other games with pass-type products, Rocket League’s Rocket Pass offers both a free and premium set of content that players can unlock by playing through online matches and leveling up through the tiers. Psyonix said when the Rocket Pass 2 was announced that it’d looked at players’ feedback and made some changes to the system.
“We listened to your feedback about the first Rocket Pass and (as a result) have now increased the variety of items found in the Premium track,” Psyonix said. “Additionally, items in the Premium Upgrade path are no longer tradeable for Tiers 1 thru 70, but 'Pro Tier' items (i.e. Tier 71 and above) and Free items CAN still be traded. We have also changed Pro Tier behavior so that they will ALWAYS drop as a 'Painted' item, while still carrying a 25% chance to drop as a 'Certified' item. Moreover, we've increased the base experience you earn from matches by 40% so that you can reach Pro Tiers faster and increased the weekly match maximum from 14 to 21.”
Rocket League's Frosty Fest 2018 event begins on December 17th and lasts until January 7th.
