Rocket League’s Blueprint Update Available Now, Includes New Season 12 Rewards, Rocket Pass 5, and Lots of Fixes

A new update has made its way into Rocket League, coinciding with the launch of Rocket Pass 5. Starting today, you’ll be able to download the game’s Blueprint update, which converts crates into Unrevealed Blueprints and Keys into Credits, adds the new Item Shop, gives you the ability to archive items, implements the new Season 12 rewards, and features various bug fixes.

You’ll now be able to browse the game’s new Item Shop, which will allow you to purchase items directly using credits. You can buy things like Decals, Rocket Boosts, Banners, Wheels, and other cosmetics to make your vehicle look extra snazzy. And remember, if you previously had Keys in your inventory, they will now be converted to Credits for you to spend. Likewise, you’ll earn Credits instead of Keys as you make your way through Rocket Pass 5’s Premium tiers.

Now that Competitive Season 12 has ended, those who participated and reached specific levels will be able to reap the rewards. Players who reached Bronze I or higher will get the Bronze’ Universal Decal, while those who managed to get to Champion I or higher will be rewarded with the Champion’ Universal Decal, etc. There are lots of other rewards depending on your placement, so make sure you check in to claim your rewards. With the conclusion of Season 12, Competitive Season 13 begins today, bringing a soft reset that will require you to recalibrate your rank.

And of course, this update will finally introduce the game’s new Blueprint system, which replaces Crates. These Blueprints will give you a clear indication as to what you can create with them, removing the element of surprise that was previously found with the old Crate system. This, Psyonix hopes, will make it more consumer-friendly.

Below, you’ll find the Blueprint update’s full patch notes:

    • League Rankings will be temporarily empty until players complete their placement matches

    • All placement match wins count towards your Bronze Season Reward Level progress
