Psyonix announced today that the Autumn Update for Rocket League will be launching on September 28th. This update will introduce a new Seasonal Arena available in Competitive, Casual, and Private matches for a limited time this Fall, as well as more than 90 free new Customization items available as Uncommon, Rare, and Very Rare drops after online matches or from Trade-Ins.
In addition, this update will bring LAN support to the PC version, Player Banners, standardization of arenas for competitive and casual online modes, transparent goalposts, and many more.
This update will also debut a new ‘Events’ system, which introduces limited-time events that provide players with the opportunity to earn additional Battle-Car customizations. Using a new item called the ‘Decryptor,’ players will be able to unlock any unopened crate in their inventory without having to purchase a Key. Additional information will be provided closer to the launch of the events themselves later this year.
Following the Autumn Update, players will also have the opportunity to help test two major upcoming features. First, is a brand new ‘Party’ System that PC players can help test during beta periods after the update goes live. Second, is a new ‘Tournaments’ system that allows players to create and compete in their own tournaments inside the game client. The Party system will launch shortly after the Autumn update goes live, while the Tournaments Beta will follow it later this fall.
