December 7, 2016Written by Jason Dunning

Scheduled to begin rolling out at 2pm PT/5pm ET, today’s free Rocket League update for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC adds the Starbase ARC arena, a Custom Training Mode, two variant arenas, a new colorblind mode, and more. It also adds support for the new DLC Battle-Car, Vulcan, which is inspired by Psyonix’s mobile title ARC Squadron and costs $1.99 USD.

“Set in an octagonal space station orbiting a desert planet in a distant galaxy, Starbase ARC arena features starship battles, floating planetoids, and interstellar laser shows to create one of the most epic Rocket League galactic atmospheres yet,” Psyonix says of the new arena. You can learn about the creation of Starbase ARC in this video:
