Rocket League now has a spectator mode. Just in case you didn’t think it was popular enough.


Rocket League has received a new patch today on PC and PlayStation 4. Patch 1.04 brings a new arena to the game for free, called the Utopia Coliseum, adds a spectator mode, increases the number of cars displayed on the menu, and plenty more.

One of the patch’s more amusing additions comes in the form of 70+ new country flags and a few other cosmetic items that reference the game’s early server woes.

We have the full list of fixes and free content below. As for paid DLC, there’s plenty of it. Check it out through the game’s site.
