Rocket League’s long awaited Autumn update will drop on the 28 September. Be prepared for information overload!
The new update will introduce a new Arena called Farmstead that will be playable in on and offline matches and playlists. And that’s not the only map coming. New variants of excisting maps like Wasteland, DFH Stadium, Mannfield and more will be coming to on- offline matches and playlists (including ranked!)
Specially limited events will also be introduced with this update with the first event coming later this year. With this event you will be able to score decryptors which will help you unlock any crate in your inventory, including limited ones!
Also in this update is a new crate called the ‘Accelerator’. In this crate you will find new items (boosts, exotics, goal explosions and more) for you to unlock. Including a new Battle-Car!
Season 4 will end on July 5 when the Champions Field DLC will be released. And that’s just the start!

Round up your buddy’s and make that dream come true. You have until the 20th of February to register for this year’s RLCS.
Smart thing to be doing right now is to at least have a sub in your team. You never know if problems come up. We still remember how it went with Vogan and his team last year.
Good luck and have fun!
Two iconic Hot Wheels vehicles will be purchasable on the 21st of February. As a bonus everyone will receive a free Hot Wheels Antenna and Topper!
Twin Mill III and Bone Shaker will be the new additions to the Battle-Cars fleet in Rocket League. Will these car be another favorite like the Batmobile? Cars can be purchased individually for $1,99 or local equivalent.
Not everything was running smoothly after patch 1.25. So Rocket League devs have been working hard on doing it right this time.
The following information has been taken from the official patch notes website.
CASUAL PLAYLISTS AND ROCKET LAB ARENAS
We have removed Rocket Lab Arenas from the Casual Arena rotation (for now). Rocket Labs Arenas were appearing too frequently and the current ‘Arena Preferences’ system does not give players who dislike Rocket Labs maps enough sway to avoid them.
* NOTE: New Rocket Labs Arena designs may appear next year in Casual playlists in a way that they can be more effectively influenced by Arena Preferences
We are also discussing alternative ways to get your feedback on new Arenas in shorter doses.
STATS, SETTINGS, AND PRESET DATA
Fixed an issue with the game client picking the wrong local profile from your save data. For some accounts that played splitscreen, this caused a “loss” of recorded stats, in-game settings, and car presets when the patch was released.
PC players should see their stats, settings, and presets restored with this hotfix. Unfortunately this was not possible for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
We are investigating solutions for next year that would prevent this from happening again by storing more of your information in our database so it cannot be lost due to this kind of bug, save-data corruption, or hardware malfunction of your PC/ Console.
[Hotfixed] Fixed collision issue that caused vehicles to sometimes bounce when
landing / caused the Batmobile to sometimes land “inside” the field.
The previous fix for the Batmobile “wobble-on-landing” had to be removed so that we can
better address it in a future update.
[Hotfixed] (PC) Fixed rendering issue that created a flickering problem for some Arenas.
Fixed VSync for Mac.
Fixed the Vulcan DLC Showroom thumbnail so that it would no longer shows an image of Triton.
The “Current Tier” text shown after Competitive matches will no longer be colored Green or Red when changing Divisions if the “Hide Competitive Divisions” option is enabled.
Seems to be a worldwide issue. Players in Japan, Netherlands, Spain, UK and US are reporting downtime. We’ll stay on the case.
