Rocket League patch 1.22 has been released, adding the usual assortment of new cosmetic items, not to mention a completely bonkers new mode, and more. The new mode has been promised for while, called Rumble.

Rumble is a 3v3 mode where there are 11 randomised power-ups available to players. These items can be anything from a magnetiser that sticks the ball to your car, a plunger that snaps it to you, a freezer that freezes the ball in place, boots, storms, grappling hooks and more.

If it sounds chaotic, it’s because it is, and it’s not like Rocket League wasn’t hectic before. The trailer above will show you just how amazing it is. Rumble will show up in unranked playlists, and you can also select it in private matches and exhibition.

The patch also allows players to create and save up to ten car presets that include specific car configurations. A new octagon arena has also been added to the Rocket Labs playlist.

Player trading is another big feature that’s part of 1.22. You can do so with players in your party, and can trade uncommon items and up including keys, crates and crate items. Xbox One players can’t trade keys currently, however.
