Rocket League Update Version 1.56 Patch Notes (PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4)

Rocket League update version 1.56 patch notes are out now. Here is what’s new and what’s fixed in this latest update.

As promised earlier, this update finally adds Xbox One X enhancements to the game. Previously, the game didn’t support the enhanced hardware of the Xbox One, but now it does. You can also enjoy some other new features like Skill Leaderboards and Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 5.

Rocket League already supports PS4 Pro with 4K rendering, so with this new update, it should also provide the same experience on the Xbox One X.
