Today, Rocket League developer Psyonix announced that a brand new update will be coming to Rocket League later this month on May 19. The Salty Shores update, as it’s titled, will be bringing a bunch of stuff into the game, including a new beach-themed arena, a new in-game event, the new Rocket League x Monster Vol. 3 playlists, and much more. To accompany the announcement, a brand new trailer for the update has been released, and you can check that out below:
When the update goes live, players will also find that Season 7 of competitive play will end and Season 8 will begin, so if you still are trying to rank your way through that mode, you only have a week left! A brand new import Battle-Car, the Twinzer, is also coming as part of a limited-drop inside the new Impact Crates being added to the game. For a brief overview of what to expect in the new update, check out below courtesy of Psyonix:
