Psyonix have been updating Rocket League regularly with new content, additional features and super cool cosmetic items to personalize your vehicles, and it’s no surprise to hear that another new feature is in the works. For those of you who find yourself jaw-dropped by some of the amazing shots the community take in a match, it’s all about the practice.
Psyonix are following up a popular community request which would allow players to practice very technical and awesome looking shots in Rocket League. With the Fall update, players will be able to download other users’ customized training sessions, or upload and share their own.
When you create your own custom training sequence, you’ll be asked to specify a few things up front
- A name for your creation.
- Which map you want to train in.
- What type of training sequence it is (Striker or Goalie).
- How difficult it’s going to be (Rookie, Pro, All-Star).
- Which “tags” best describe your training sequence (Dribbling, Wall Shots, etc.)
“Once all that’s settled, you can then get down to editing your sequence in-game. What you’ll see first is your ‘Shot List’ that contains every shot you’ve set up as part of your new sequence. From here you can pick a shot to edit, add new shots, or delete ones you don’t want to keep.
Editing a specific shot is the most important aspect of this new feature. You can place the car and the ball wherever you want on the field and you can specify the direction and speed of the ball with a full trajectory preview that helps you plan things out.
Each shot can be tested in real-time, modified, and tested again to make it quick and easy to develop your new training sequence.”
Then it’s just a case of working on your skills and becoming a stronger player. You can also save your favourite training videos to a ‘Favourites’ feature, so you can quickly find and practice the skills you want to become more adequate with.
There’s no release date for the update just yet, but it’s something to get excited about, if you take your Rocket League seriously!
