Rocket League is getting new loot and a trade-in system

Rocket League 2

If you’re a sucker for cosmetics (like I am), the upcoming June update for Rocket League is sure to tickle your fancy. A few days ago, Psyonix said that it would contain painted and certified items. They’ve now announced that it will feature rare items and a trade-in system too (via PC Gamer).

That latter bit of news is what has me most excited. A trade-in system? Hallelujah! Now I can throw away all my duplicates in exchange for something potentially better.

Though, I may want to hold onto them for a bit longer. Psyonix are working on another cool feature that’ll come sometime after the June patch…

In the interest of full disclosure, we plan to implement Player-to-Player Trading in a later update. Some items, like those with “Painted” or “Certified” attributes, may become much more valuable if you can trade them to other players.  The “Trade-In System” is designed to let you get rid of unwanted or duplicate items, but you should consider carefully what you trade now versus what you might want to keep for future player-trading opportunities.

It’s about damn time! I wonder if Alessandro would be willing to give up some of his Portal 2 items? Probably not (that damn selfish Porra), which is why I’ll have to revert back to the trade-in system and hope that I get lucky.

The way it works is quite straight forward. Trade-in five common items and you’ll earn yourself something uncommon. Trade-in five uncommons, and you’ll score yourself something rare. And, yes, trading in five rares will then result in something very rare (I think Psyonix need to rename that category to legendary or something similar).

I’m quite stoked with these upcoming Rocket League features. What about you? Are you keen to get your hands on some shiny new cosmetics? Do you have a backlog of duplicates that you’ve been dying to get rid of?

    More cosmetics? I thought there were enough to collect in Overwatch (at 54/55 per character)

            I still want that game, but I have so many games on my backlog that it’s gonna have to wait… a LONG while.

            This Christmas holiday is filled already with games to play. Fallout and Witcher being the main guns of time consumption

            I’m getting there with Fallout… Witcher is next on the list. But there are so many distractions 😛

      If you have facebook go ahead and look up Rocket League SA, they do small community driven comps every once often. You could play against the prem league guys if you want to.

    I have exactly 206 uncommon duplicates waiting to trade in. 😀 However, this article only covers a fraction of the features in the June update. It’s going to be HUGE!

    How do you know how many duplicate items you have?

    Or are we just assuming all “uncommon” is after you got the “common” item too? I’m confused.
