Includes Performance/Quality settings on Xbox.

Rocket League certainly isn’t being left out of that next-gen enhancements action, and developer Psyonix has now detailed the changes coming to its four-wheeled footie game on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 before the end of the year.

In a new post on the Rocket League website, Psyonix explains it has two batches of updates on the way for next-gen consoles. The first, arriving on launch day, will boost Rocket League to 4K/60fps with HDR on Xbox Series X, and 1080p/60fps with HDR on Series S.

PS5 owners, meanwhile, can enjoy 4K (checkerboard) at 60fps with HDR, and all next-gen consoles will feature faster load times and improved split-screen performance.
