The next update for Rocket League, titled the Salty Shores update, comes May 29 with a new arena and more, developer Psyonix announced today.
The update brings the beach to the field in the new Salty Shores arena. The arena will be included in the free update and will be permanently added to all online multiplayer playlists, unlike past seasonal maps that have been rotated out. The Twinzer Battle-Car will also be added and can be earned through the new Impact crate. Check out the new car and arena in action in the trailer below.
Additionally, Competitive Season 8 begins on May 29 along with handing out Season 7 rewards. Players will receive banners and goal explosion cosmetics based on highest competitive rank, which Psyonix showed off in a separate post last week. Competitive Season 8 will bring a soft skill reset as well.
Other features in the update include a third volume of in-game music by record label Monstercat and a ‘Report Server’ button for servers that hitch up during a match. Psyonix also teased its Beach Blast in-game event would be run from June 11 until July 2, and will detail more closer to the event.
The Salty Shores update is the first part of Rocket League’s summer 2018 roadmap, containing plans for several updates throughout the summer. Psyonix plans to overhaul the game’s XP and progression systems, alongside cross-platform party support, sometime in July and August.
