Rocket League PS4 Closed Beta Starts Today

Jeremy Dunham's Avatar Posted by on Apr 24, 2015 // Vice President of Marketing, Psyonix

We’ve been a little hush-hush since our last PlayStation.Blog post, but it’s because we’ve been hard at work finishing our PS4 sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, aka Rocket League.

Rocket League

Sign up for the beta

The good news is, that just last week, we officially hit our “Feature Complete” milestone — which means that all the features we intended for the final version of the game are now in and working. From this point forward, our attention will focus on testing and polishing Rocket League as much as we possibly can to ensure that our game is as good as it can be.

Development is in the final stretch, but given that we’re running out of spring months, our target release date is changing to summer 2015. Our number-one priority is bringing you, our fans, a fun, high-quality game and we want to do whatever it takes to make that happen.

…Which brings us to how you can help us achieve that goal — by participating in the Rocket League Closed Beta.

Earlier this week, we began rolling out beta access to select members of our existing Rocket League and Battle-Cars community, but starting TODAY, we want to expand it.

All you have to do to take part is head on over to and fill out the form shown on the page. To qualify, you will just need a valid email address and a PSN ID.

Beta Key supplies ARE LIMITED, so not every applicant will get a key. We recommend submitting your name while you can. If you’re not granted access immediately, that doesn’t mean you’re not in the running — we’ll continue to expand the player count as the Beta moves along. Keep an eye on your inbox for more!

And now, some important notes:

  • Server Times will run from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM Pacific.
  • Because this test is specifically for matchmaking and server functionality, most final-game features are disabled.
  • Season Mode and Car Customization are not included, only one stadium is available for play.
  • These keys are for North America only.
  • This initial beta phase will end at a date to be determined in early May.

That’s it for now. We hope to see you in the Rocket League beta soon. Thanks again for all of your continued support!

I played SARPBC hundreds of hours and I am looking forward for the Sequel. I am also very proud to be a part of this community! Maybe I am able to score the First Air Drag in Rocket League like I did in SARPBC! I LOVE YOU GUYS <3

+ auron2 on April 24th, 2015 at 5:21 pm said:

Loving the beta so far.
I wish you could let us play solo and split-screen against bots when the servers are down. It’s gonna be a bummer having to stop to playing after 1am.


+ Stallone1993 on April 24th, 2015 at 6:15 pm said:

Ahh I’m a huge fan of SARPBC… I hope I can get an early taste of Rocket League!

I can tell from the trailer that this is a day 1 buy for me, but I can’t resist trying it out right now.

I’ve been playing sarp for 4 years and it was my favorite game of all time. I really hope I get the beta key to get back into the action and beat Snake, Demic, Lachinio, and even some of the devs again. Watch out guys the U.S. marine’s tank is coming into play. :)

Played a few matches today, I can’t wait to pay whatever the full game will be. Can we share gameplay on facebook and the like?


+ DanSD on April 25th, 2015 at 7:05 pm said:

I heard, last year, a sequel was in progress, but hadn’t come across any solid information. I’m stoked it’s happening. The beta feels very much like the original, but seems smoother, and looks much, much prettier. The “lobby” is also a nice touch. You guys must include the original theme song in this game, even if only as an Easter egg.

My beta experience:

That 6:25 save/goal.. Damn.
And that 7:20 save.. so elegant (nevermind how I set the goal shot up against us.. for the second time).


+ thegodofgreen on April 25th, 2015 at 10:19 pm said:

servers just went down as scheduled, the game is somewhat fast paced. easy to pick up hard to master, easily a family / friend party type game that can have a serious side good fun wish there was 4 v 4. the connection was smooth, no one in the 3v3 had a ping over 70


+ Roguerts on April 25th, 2015 at 10:21 pm said:

Whatever you guys do with this game…. just make sure it has a super awesome intro song like SUPERSONIC ACROBATIC ROCKET-POWERED BATTLE-CARS did…… cause it needs that!


+ MakaiOokami on April 26th, 2015 at 12:42 am said:

When did the game drop to $3?

Man if I knew that I would have been pestering my friends to buy it!


+ dizzi800 on April 26th, 2015 at 1:25 pm said:

Most people seem to be getting their beta keys within a couple of hours… I signed up yesterday and – nothing.

Is it just lagging behind the (reported) average? Or are you excluding Canada from North America?
