Rocket League winter events and items unveiled

Cars-meets-soccer hit Rocket League is getting new items and play modes in December, according to developer Psyonix.

The Rocket League “Winter Games” will launch on Dec. 14, offering seasonal themed extras such as a “Snow Day” mode which takes its inspiration from ice hockey, offering a slippery playing surface and a large, flat puck. “Snow Day” will replace the current “Mutator Mashup” mode.

Players will also be able to unlock Holiday-themed garage items which will stay unlockable through to Jan. 4 and keep-able thereafter. These include vehicle toppers for Blitzen, Santa, candy cane and a Christmas tree. They can be unlocked just by playing Rocket League, win or lose.

Rocket League‘s winter event will be available for free on PC and PlayStation 4 for anyone with the base game.

Sony sponsors bootcamp for girls who want to work in gaming

Sony has announced plans to sponsor a "bootcamp" for girls who want to work in video games and technology. The six-week session is being held in Liverpool for local girls ages 11-to-14. It's being organized by Liverpool Girl Geeks, which says it's attracted large numbers of applications for its various courses and programs. This year, it hopes to support 400 girls, according to a report in Develop. "There is a gender imbalance within our technology sector," said Sony's Michelle Tilley. "We need to take action now to ensure a more balanced and inclusive industry for the future. The games industry is an amazing place to work so we should actively encourage young women to join it by inspiring, championing and empowering them to achieve their dreams."
