Rocket League is going all out with the Rumble update. With a new mode, new maps and new painted items we thought we had it all, boy were we wrong.
Because the update is so huge coming articles are split up in more readable pieces. You will get all the info you need, without reading through 2000 words, how about that! So first up is the new crate feature that is coming.
The crate system will help with the eSport financing of Rocket League. You can switch off the crate function. So if you don’t want anything to do with the feature, there is no harm done (more about this). The crates will drop alongside the normal drops of free content. So don’t worry about switching off and be left out from all the goodies.
Crates can drop randomly, but the keys will have to be bought. You can buy these in bulk (5/10/20) or individually. The prices will be somewhere around 1,49 USD or 5, 10, 20 USD if you buy in bulk.
So what can we buy?
Now we are getting to the most interesting part. With the crates you can unlock special content for your car. Think of decals, wheels and new cars. What? You heard right.
These special ‘Import’ Battle Cars be possibly unlocked. These cars are variants of the Dominus, Takumi, X-Devil and Road Hog (Images can be found here). There is no telling if the Import Battle Cars will be available through regular DLC at given time. But expect an announcement about that when it comes.
But what about Black Market items?
These items will come with no preview and you will have no way of knowing what you will be getting. You can take the risk or buy in safe with the normal crate dropping.
Be on the lookout for our second article about the Rumble update!
