Nachdem der Rocket Pass 2 sehr erfolgreich verlaufen ist, wie die obige Grafik zeigt, startet am morgigen Mittwoch im Auto-Fußballspiel Rocket League der Rocket Pass 3. Dieser wird wieder eine Reihe neuer Items und Herausforderungen beinhalten. Das Entwicklerteam von Psyonix hat daher eine Reihe von Details veröffentlicht, was die Spieler konkret in der Zeit vom 17.04.2019 bis 29.07.2019 erwartet: so wird es alleine in der Free-Version bereits mehr als 20 zusätzliche Items geben, Spieler der Premium-Version dürfen sich sogar auf mehr als 50 zusätzliche Items freuen - darunter der neue Guardian Battle-Car. Hier die komplette Ankündigung zum Nachlesen:

With Rocket Pass 3 just around the corner, we wanted to let you know what to expect on April 17. Along with an entirely new line of Free and Premium items unique to this Rocket Pass, Weekly Challenges are also being added to the mix. These Challenges will allow players to Tier Up even faster. Before you eagerly take the field on day one, here is everything you need to know about Rocket Pass 3 and Weekly Challenges.

ARE YOU UP TO THE CHALLENGE?
Weekly Challenges will go live on the first day of Rocket Pass 3, and will add a new way to climb Tiers. Specifically, Tiers are now gained with a new Rocket League reward system, known as "Tier Points." Tier Points are earned by completing Challenges but they're also earned by gaining XP after Online Matches, similar to how it worked in Rocket Pass 1 and 2.

How does it work together now? Well, in Rocket Pass 3, each Tier requires 10 Tier Points to advance to the next Tier. Challenges will be worth three, five, and eight Tier Points depending on the difficulty of the Challenge. In addition to the Tier Points you gain from completing Weekly Challenges, you can also Tier-Up from XP as mentioned above. Every time you gain an XP level, you'll receive 10 Tier Points.

Weekly Challenges must be completed during the week in which they are active. They will expire once new Challenges become active during the following week. Rocket Pass 3 will still track your progress for Premium Weekly Challenges even if you have not purchased Rocket Pass Premium, but you will only receive the Tier Points from Premium Challenges once Rocket Pass Premium has been purchased. If you purchase Rocket Pass Premium late into Rocket Pass 3, you will receive the Tier Points from completed Premium Challenges in expired weeks. However, you will not be able to complete uncompleted Challenges once they expire.

The Challenge list will refresh each Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. UTC) throughout Rocket Pass 3. Check out a sneak peek at the Challenge Menu and the Weekly Challenges from Week 1 in the screenshot below.

ALL NEW ITEMS
Rocket Pass 3 will feature 20+ items in the Free track, and 50+ additional items in the Rocket Pass Premium Track, including the all-new Guardian Battle-Car. Plus, there are Decryptors to earn on the Free track and a total of 10 Keys in Rocket Pass Premium.

The Pro Tiers are back! Pro Tiers (i.e. past Tier 70) will grant Painted items from Rocket Pass 3, and will have a chance of being Certified or Special Edition. As always, rewards earned from the Pro Tiers in Rocket Pass 3 are tradable.

ROCKET PASS 3 AND CHALLENGES AT A GLANCE
If you prefer bullet points, here's the TL;DR version of Rocket Pass 3 and Weekly Challenges:

Rocket Pass Premium for Rocket Pass 3 is the same price as previous Rocket Passes (10 Keys).

Rocket Pass 3 will have both Free and Premium Tiers, just like Rocket Pass 1 and 2.

Rocket Pass 3 will have Weekly Challenges for both Free and Premium tracks.

The Free track will have three Weekly Challenges and those with Rocket Pass Premium will get three additional Weekly Challenges.

Challenges expire each Wednesday at 10 a.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. UTC) during Rocket Pass 3, and new challenges will become active at that time.

Weekly Challenges must be completed within their active week.

You cannot go back and complete expired challenges once their week has passed.

If you purchase Rocket Pass Premium in a later week during the Rocket Pass 3, you will receive Tier Points for completed Challenges from previous weeks.

Mit dem Rocket Pass 3 wird es also auch erstmals wöchentliche Aufgaben (Challanges) in Rocket Leaguegeben, mit denen man zusätzliche XP für einen schnelleren Aufstieg erhalten kann.

Und der Rückblick auf die Rocket Pass 2 zeigt eine sehr erfreuliche Statistik: in den 99 Tagen haben mehr Spieler einen höheren Rang erreichen können als noch im Rocket Pass 1, einzelne Spieler haben es sogar geschafft in den vierstelligen Tier-Bereich (Stufe 1.000 und höher) zu gelangen, das höchste erreichte Tier eines einzelnen Spielers lag bei Stufe 4.180!
