Rocket League getting much more than just Rumble mode next month

Posted August 11th, 2016 at 8:00 pm


Earlier this week Rocket League developer Psyonix announced a free new mode that features randomized power-ups which will be out in September. Now there are some more details on what’s coming with the big update next month as it’ll also include a new arena and spins put on two of the existing ones. There’s even more that’ll be revealed at a later date.

Available for both Online and Offline Exhibition play, “Octagon” is VR-themed like other Rocket Labs Arenas, but the large, eight-sided walls are what set it apart. Two more variants of classic traditional fields,”Urban Central (Dawn)” and “DFH Stadium (Stormy),” are coming as well. As always, both variants will be included for Online and offline play in Exhibition and Private matches, and the Ranked Playlists as they should be.

The Octagon arena will join the likes of Neo Tokyo, Pillars, Underpass, Double Goal, and Cosmic in the Rocket Labs playlists as post-release additions.
