It’s hard to find words that can help you describe Rocket League. It has lots of cars in it, but it is not a racing game. You could say that it’s a sports game, but again, that just isn’t a description that fits. Rocket League is simply a game where you drive cars and try to use those cars to score goals with these huge soccer balls. It’s quite a unique game, and we are here to take a look at the Autumn Update highlights.
Next week is still far from today, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t get excited at the thought of Rocket League’s Autumn Update. It will be a massive update that is going to bring a heap of new features, but today we are here to look at the highlights, like the LAN matches.
With the Autumn Update you will finally be able to host and join LAN matches. Of course, LAN parties aren’t nearly as popular as they once were, but being able to gather at a friend’s house and plug a bunch of computers together and then play a match of Rocket League sounds pretty awesome. All game modes will be playable in the Local Matches.
Players will be able to create and host a Local Match without many issues, as they are certainly already familiar with how Exhibition and Private Matches are made, as it won’t be much different than that. Currently, Local Matches are coming to PC only, but the developers hope to include them for consoles too in the future.
The other highlight of the Autumn Update that we will be looking at today is the Director Mode, which is coming as a beta feature. The Director Mode will put an AI in charge of the camera movement and placement while you’re watching your Replays or spectating matches, which will allow you to relax and just watch. Thanks to the deep analysis of match data and the new camera-controlling AI, players will be able to comfortably watch any match, as the AI will focus on important plays, shots, and so on.
The Director Mode will, of course, be totally optional, and you can find it alongside the other Camera Options.
