Psyonix reveal the new Starbase ARC update for Rocket League.
The new space-themed update is a homage to Psyonix’s mobile game, ARC Squadron. The octagonally-shaped space station is in orbit above a desert planet in a galaxy far, far away, providing an impressive backdrop to the usual shenanigans that includes laser fire, meteors and starship battles.
The update will be available for download worldwide from 7th December and includes a free new arena and premium DLC Battle-Car, the Vulcan.
The update also includes a Custom Training Mode, a feature long-requested by Rocket League‘s playing community. The mode – which is free as a bird – lets players configure their own customised training sequences. They can be named, applied to a specific map, tailored for strikers or goalies, and tagged to provide users with information. The sequences can then be uploaded and shared with other Rocket League players using an alphanumeric code.
Additionally, the Starbase ARC update also includes support for Steam Workshop – allowing Unreal Engine 3 UDK users to create custom levels – plus a Color Blind Mode and two new variants of existing arenas; Wasteland (Night) and Utopia Coliseum (Snowy). Perfect for these gloomy Winter evenings.
And perhaps best of all there’s the introduction of an Arena Preference selector that allows players to Like or Dislike all fields in the game to increase or decrease the odds of playing on them in online matches.
