Rocket League is a rather good port on the Nintendo Switch although it has been pared back a lot in term of the visuals. Psyonix has shared their roadmap for the upcoming Spring 2018 updates for Rocket League and it confirms that they will update the game to improve visuals and even offer a 30 fps mode that will run at native 1080p on Switch.
Rocket League is an extremely fast paced game that requires the fluidity of 60 fps so it should be interesting to see how the developers handle this new update, but in any case, here is what they have planned to release for the Nintendo Switch in the upcoming Spring 2018 roadmap.
Switch Performance & Visual Quality Updates
- Performance Mode – 900p (Docked) / 720p (Handheld) @ 60 FPS with infrequent dynamic resolution scaling
- Quality Mode – Native 1080p (Docked) / 720p (Handheld) @ 30 FPS with added visual effects
This seems to be a good upgrade from the current 720p in docked mode along with dynamic 720p in handheld mode. The game does run at 60 fps and sticks closer to this target so atleast the gameplay doesn’t seem to be affected much by it. The new update will be released in the coming month so keep an eye out for it.
Rocket League is available now for the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
