Rocket League Season 2 Brings Player Anthems, Neons, And New Rocket Pass This Month
The newly free-to-play Rocket League is bringing some neon flair to its EDM-inspired new season.
Rocket League went free-to-play in September, kicking off "Season 1" of the game, which is now 5 years old. Now developer Psyonix is making up for lost time, launching Season 2 on December 9. The theme of this season is music, and the game will add new tracks from EDM artist Kaskade to the game's soundtrack.
The first of Kaskade's new tracks, Flip Reset, is available now. More tracks will follow in the update.
Along with new tracks, players will also have the ability to choose a "Player Anthem" from the soundtrack. This means that whenever they score a goal, their song will play, letting you really soak in your achievement after a good goal. All players will also have access to a new arena, called Neon Fields, which is EDM-inspired and covered in cool glowing lights.
Rocket Labs will also return for Season 2, featuring as a Casual LTM playlist. In this mode, you'll be able to try out some experimental gameplay styles, just like in the early days of Rocket League. It should be interesting to see what ideas Psyonix is testing out now.
A new Rocket Pass is being introduced too, with over 70 tiers of unlockable content. Grab the premium version of the pass and you'll immediately unlock the R3MX car, and working your way through the ranks will unlock more cars, decals, wheels, explosions, and more. You can check out the full Season 2 Rocket Pass unlock list now.
Rocket League is free-to-play on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S through backwards compatibility. The game has also received a great boost on the next-gen systems.
