This is a bit of a December tradition as Rockhopper usually visits for December, but he will be doing so again this year! If you ahead to the Beacon and look through the telescope, you’ll be able to see his ship slowly approaching.
It’s likely that Rockhopper will dock and visit for the Holiday Party, though a date for that event hasn’t been revealed yet.
As always though, the Rockhopper Tracker will contain all the latest information if you’re hoping to meet him! You can find the Rockhopper Tracker here.
