The Tournaments update for Rocket League is now live on all platforms, bringing player-created tournaments, chat bans, and more to the game today.
Like the name of the update suggests, players can now create their own tournaments within the game. Tournaments must have a minimum of eight teams and supports a maximum bracket size of 128 teams. Teams must be in a party to register for the new feature, and tournaments can be cross-platform.
The Nintendo Switch version also received two new video settings – Performance Mode and Quality Mode – alongside the ability to capture the last 30 seconds of video in the patch. According to the patch notes, Performance Mode runs the game at 60 FPS with decreased resolution and Quality Mode keeps the framerate at 30 FPS with a resolution of 1080p or 720p, depending on if the console is docked or handheld.
