Rocket League developer Psyonix reveals details of the game’s upcoming Anniversary Update.
Psyonix pulled back the curtain on Rocket League‘s Anniversary Update during Season Three World Championship finals, which were held this weekend in Los Angeles.
Arriving on July 5, the Anniversary Update is a sizeable expansion to the game that adds a free, brand new arena called Champions Field. The modern-style stadium will be available in Competitive, Casual and Private matches. The update also concludes Competitive Season 4, and begins Competitive Season 5.
Other Anniversary Update content includes two new Import Battle-Cars – the Animus GP and Centio V17 – which are available exclusively as drops inside the new Overdrive Crate. Also added are new customisation options for Engine Audio, Goal Explosions, and Trails that are a mix of free selections and crate drops. Plus, there will be 18 new songs from record label, Monstercat, added to the game via the introduction of Rocket League Radio.
Psyonix have released a 2nd Anniversary Update trailer and screenshots showing off the new content.
The Anniversary Update launches on the week of Rocket League‘s second birthday. In its first two years the game has attracted an almighty 31 million players, who have now completed more than 1.45 billion matches across all platforms.
