Rocket League to celebrate second anniversary with lots of new content

Next month, Rocket League is set to celebrate two years of its existence with a celebratory update. Here’s what Psyonix has got in the works for the game.

It’s going to be two years since Rocket League came out? The little indie racer-sportser became such a sensation that it feels like it’s been here forever. Developer Psyonix has announced that the game will be getting a new Anniversary Update on July 5th, which will contain a load of new content for players.

First up, there’s a new arena, titled ‘Champions Field’. Here’s what Psyonix says about it:

“‘Champions Field’ celebrates the pure competition found in Rocket League, complete with a massive statue featuring our shield logo, triple-decker seating (a must in any modern sports entertainment complex), and enough stadium lighting to make your match visible from outer space!”

Champions Field will be available for free across competitive and online playlists, and it can even be used for private matches.

There are also two new Battle-Cars, the Animus GP and Centio V17 (the latter is pictured above). These cars will be available in Overdrive Crates, which will be available as limited drops after Online matches.

The update will include new customisations, including Goal Explosions (there’s a freaky one that looks like an exploding skull—my pick), trails and engine sounds. Psyonix has also added 18 new songs to the game, thanks to a new radio featuring Monstercat.

In addition to all of this, the anniversary update will also serve as the end of Competitive Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5. More details on Season 5 will be coming closer to the update.

Rocket League is available on Steam (PC), PS4 and Xbox One. The game is also available for Mac and Linux via Steam, but those versions are strictly beta right now.
