YES! items are coming to Rocket League Dec. 1! Thanks to Valve for making it happen! http://steamcommunity.com/games/252950/announcements/detail/38641143926128777 — Rocket League

After the big ‘Winter Games‘ announcement from a couple of days back new info has emerged on new items that are coming to Rocket League.

More and more game developers are picking up on the success of Rocket League and are willing to ‘donate‘ free items to the good cause. Which is obviously Psyonix!

Valve Software is probably the first developer on ever allowing trademarked content to be in Rocket League…for free! Simply play games, win or lose and you will have the items in your inventory. They are not limited like for example the Holiday items that are coming in the Winter Games update.

The following items are unlock-able  starting from December 1st:

  • Cake (Topper)
  • Conversion Gel (Rocket Trail)
  • Propulsion Gel (Rocket Trail)
  • Repulsion Gel (Rocket Trail)
  • Aperture Laboratories (Antenna)
  • Cake Sticker (Antenna)
  • Companion Cube (Antenna)
  • Personality Core (Antenna)
  • PotatOS (Antenna)

It’s going to be a great first December week for any Rocket League fan! Thanks Valve Software!

 

Mix, Match, and Mutate!

Mix, Match, and Mutate this November! The Blog has all the details! – http://blog.us.playstation.com/2015/10/28/mix-match-and-mutate-in-rocket-league-this-november/ — Rocket League

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide. No escape from reality. Open your eyes. Look up to the skies and see! 

Looks like Rocket League is all out on this one. We finally get to play with the custom settings and change certain aspects of the game (like the ball for instance). A great addition to the game to keep it fresh and above all: Fun! Read the statement they posted on the Playstation Blog:

Longtime Psyonix fans already know that Rocket League’s origins are firmly rooted in the modes and mods of Unreal Tournament and its beloved sequels, and we’ve never forgotten that; Which is why we’re celebrating our UT heritage by unleashing a new, 100% FREE, update this November that allows players to “Mutate” their matches with a multitude of cool Presets and Custom settings! — Playstation Blog

And thats not all there is. If you have watched the trailer you saw that December has a lot more in store for us! Snowy stadiums with pucks to replace the ball. This is just too much to cope with right now. We’re excited as hell!

Free Halloween items coming to Rocket League

Looks like Rocket League is doing the trick or treat thing! For a limited time only there will be exclusive Toppers, Wheels, Rocket Trails and Antenna’s for you to obtain in the game. How to get it? Simply by playing! But (there is always a but) there is a catch:

Available as post-match item drops, each Halloween item can be unlocked simply by playing matches like you normally would (Win or lose!). Once you’ve found an item, it’s yours to keep forever, but if you don’t find the ones you want by November 2nd, you’ll have to wait until next year for a shot at them again. — Playstation Blog

So what special items are there for you to obtain, well:

  • “Calavera” Antenna
  • “Candy Corn” Rocket Trail
  • “Carriage” Wheels
  • “Fuzzy Brute” Antenna
  • “Fuzzy Vampire” Antenna
  • “Pumpkin” Topper

6 items. So for anyone who wants to stand out. Obtain them all and you will be worshiped forever!

Revenge of the Battle Cars DLC coming in October!

Revenge of the Battle-Cars has all sorts of cool stuff inspired by our first official trip to the pitch! When it arrives, our “new-but-old-school” DLC will feature a number of awesome customization items that longtime SARPBC fans should immediately recognize. Including…

  • 2 Classic SARPBC Battle-Cars, Scarab and Zippy
  • 12 New Decals (six for each new car)
  • 3 New Paint Types (Toon Glossy, Toon Matte, Toon Wood)
  • 2 New Wheels (Scarab and Zippy)
  • 2 New Rocket Boosts (Accelerato and Battle-Stars)
  • 4 New Toppers (Cavalier, Locomotive, Pixelated Shades, Shark Fin)
  • 2 New Antennas (Retro Balls from SARPBC)
  • 5 New Trophies

Besides the 2 cars from the Battlecars game. New map additions awaits us for the FREE DLC:

Besides our paid Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC, we’re also continuing our tradition of giving everyone extra free stuff to go along with it. This time around, it’s the debut of two new variations of our existing arenas, Urban Station (Night) and Utopia Coliseum (Dusk).

These variants are the last “regulation-style” maps you’ll see for while, by the way, as our next few arenas after that will focus on more “unusual” layouts and settings (more on those later this year).

Additional free goodies, like new music, Community and Country flags, and our customary updates and optimizations and updates will ship alongside the DLC.

Revenge of the Battle-Cars will retail for $3.99 USD when it launches this October. See you on the pitch!
