Rocket League is very much the game that keeps on giving, with a nearly bottomless amount of post release DLC and support coming from Psyonix at a breakneck pace to keep players engaged in the bizarre soccer/car combat game. Whether it be new arenas, modes, skins, or something else, there’s always something else to look forward to on the horizon for Rocket League, and the next big update has just been given a release date

To tie in with the beginning of summer, Psyonix will be adding a new arena called Salty Shores to the game on 29th May. Though Salty Shores may be the headlining feature of the update, there’s a few other additions and improvements to look forward to, and they’re as follows:

Which sunblock SPF does a Battle-Car need when it’s soaking up rays and playing in the sand all day? We’ll know soon, because our new Salty Shores Update splashes down on May 29!

This next Content Update is all about Rocket League fun in the sun, starting with the aforementioned ‘Salty Shores,’ our brand new seaside Arena! As our sunniest map to date, Salty Shores should keep the summertime vibes going year-round as a permanent addition to all online Playlists!

Along with a new Arena, we’re also bringing you the start of Competitive Season 8, the distribution of Season 7 Rewards, the new ‘Impact’ Crate, fresh beats from the ‘Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 3’ EP and more! You’ll also find some nice quality of life improvements in the mix, including a new ‘Report Server’ button for when servers misbehave during an online match. Our ‘Beach Blast’ in-game Event is coming soon too, but not for a few more weeks — June 11, to be exact! We’ll have more details about Beach Blast closer to the start of the event, so stay tuned!
