Rocket League’s fall update has new arenas, cars, and free items which make blowing up enemy goals even more enjoyable.

Rocket League was already an exciting game at launch, but now it’s a gift that keeps on giving thanks to a metric ton of bonus updates. The latest “Autumn Update” is no exception, adding brand-new arenas, gameplay tweaks, and a massive volume of free items.

To start, players will have access to a seasonal arena called Farmstead, where matches occur in a field surrounded by crops and farmland. Anyone can also take advantage of five new standardized arenas: Starbase Arc, Wasteland, Champions Field (Day), Mannfield (Snowy), and DFH Stadium (Day).

The real treat however, are the 90+ items players can equip on their vehicles. These items cover everything from pinwheels, to a Taco Boost special effect, to a tiny bunny who rides on top of your car. Rocket League is also introducing new player banners which surround your name after a goal, to add another cosmetic layer players can enjoy.

And that’s not getting into new gameplay features! Rocket League now supports LAN play on PC, for players who would rather compete in-person instead of over a network. Later in the year, Psyonix will roll out new limited-time events which provide special rewards to players. Most notable of these are Decryptors, rare items which allow players to unlock any crate, including those earned during events.

Rocket League’s Autumn update is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch version is expected to launch later this year.
