Rocket League cross-platform update Friends Update

The wait for Rocket League cross-platform play is almost over. Developer Playonix announced today that the Friends Update will drop on Feb. 19.

The big new feature for Rocket League with this update is the fancy Friends List. It sports their new Cross-Platform Party System, which lets players form parties with each other regardless of the system they’re playing on. Players can also invite each other to in-game Clubs no matter which platform they’re on.

When the update goes live, every player will be assigned a new form of username called a RocketID. This is your current username with a set of 4 numbers at the end of it. This is the new ID you’ll use to interact with players across other console platforms.

A full breakdown of the Friends List features via the official Rocket League website can be found below.

The Friends Update will bring a new Friends List to the main menu. Here, you’ll be able to see the online status of all of your Rocket League friends regardless of their platform. The Friends List is split into four tabs: FriendsRocketIDRecent Players, and Alerts.


The Friends Tab will display your friends on your current platform. The RocketID Tab will show your online friends on all other platforms. After the update, every player will be auto-assigned a RocketID,which will be your username followed by four randomly-generated numbers. You may change the word portion of your RocketID at any time.


The Recent Players tab conveniently shows players you were recently matched up with or against. If you had solid team chemistry with a randomly-matched player, you can easily send that player a Friend Request from the Recent Players tab if they are on a different platform.


Finally, the Alerts tab will house all of your player interactions like Friend Requests, Party Invites, and Club Invites. Yes, Clubs are now Cross-Platform, too!
