Big Rocket League Update Launches Today With A Free Map, New Customization Types

A major update for Rocket League arrives later today. This free release includes new content that’s meant to mark the game’s second anniversary, following its original release back in July 2015.

Most notably, the update introduces a new map called Champions Field. You can get a glimpse of this in the video above, but it’s essentially a giant outdoor stadium with a layout that’s closer to a square than a rectangle.

In addition to the arena, all players get new, Rick and Morty-themed customization options for free; these include toppers, a rocket boost, and wheels. Perhaps more significantly, new customization options will be available–you’ll now be able to have different engine sound effects and goal explosions. Some customization options for these will be available for free, while others are locked as Crate drops.

This update introduces a new Crate, the Overdrive Crate, which consists of a pair of vehicles (the Animus GP and Centio V17) as well as new trails and animated decals, among other things.

Finally, there’s new music (18 tracks from Monstercat), the end of Competitive Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5, six new Achievements/Trophies, and more in this patch. The Anniversary update goes live at 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET / 11 PM BST today, July 7. Coinciding with this, the game is on sale for $10 on the PlayStation Store and $14 on the Xbox Store (or $12 if you have Xbox Live Gold).

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
