Rocket League received a huge update today. A bunch of tweaks and changes were added to the game, in addition to support of the game’s first substantial DLC pack, Supersonic Fury.
The update adds 70 new country flags for car customization. It also adds a free new map called Utopia Coliseum, which is based on a field from the previous game of the series, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. There are a few new features added as well. You can now forfeit out of ranked matches and spectate in private matches.
Check out the full list of changes and updates below:
- Added “Spectate” to “Choose Team” menu for “Private Matches”, allowing players the option to watch games rather than participate (3v3 match-type maximum)
- Added “Utopia Coliseum” Arena
- Added “3v3 Team Ranked” as a replacement for “3v3 Solo” the Online match queue
- Added “Vote to Forfeit” button to “Ranked” online matches
- Added the ability to create or join Private Matches that can be named and/or password-protected
- Added “Community Flags” sub-section to Garage Items/ Antennas
- Added “Reset Shot” to Keybinding Options to address errant R1 training reassignment

- “Saturn” has been renamed to “Planetoid” (because Saturn doesn’t have craters)
- Up to four Party member’s Battle-Cars can now be displayed on the Menu screens
- Repaired several “Connect Failure” issue
- Fixed “Private Match” bug that sometimes caused the “Update Match” settings to disappear for the Party Leader

Rocket League was released last month for the PS4 and PC. It was very well received, receiving great critic scores and over five million downloads. As of right now there is no time table to port the game to other consoles, but the developer has stated that they plan to in the future.
