The long-awaited Xbox One X enhancements are almost here for Rocket League. 4K, HDR, all at 60 frames per second. The patch is in Microsoft’s hands and should go live on December 3.

Psyonix’s Graphics Engineer Art Mata gave a shout out to Microsoft for helping them implement HDR and other Xbox One X enhancements.

“We worked very closely with Microsoft’s Advanced Technology Group to get the most out of the Xbox One X and they also gave us some incredible feedback on tuning our title for HDR,” said Mata. “It was a blast working with them, so huge shout-out to our friends on the Xbox ATG team for all the help!

Paper White and Contrast sliders will help you get the most out of Rocket League’s new HDR implementation. Here’s hoping the HDR is good, and not a half-hearted attempt.

While Xbox One X goodies are the headline for December’s update, the rest of the Rocket League community aren’t being left out to dry. Leaderboards are coming to Ranked Extra Modes, tweaks to the XP/Progression system. We’ll also have another set of songs to jam out to with ‘Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 5.’ Here’s the first track.

Damn! Rocket League continues to nail the music.

This update won’t be the last we hear from Psyonix in 2018. Soon after the update goes live, we’ll get the first info on Rocket Pass 2 and Frosty Fest 2018 according to the devs.
