Rocket League Season 2 Now Live, Full Patch Notes Listed

Rocket League Season 2 has officially begun, adding the R3MX and Neon Fields to the game.

Comments

Rocket League Season 2 is now live and it brings a host of changes to the game about supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-cars. Season 2 adds a new battle car and arena, as well as player anthems.

The new battle car is the R3MX, unlocked in the first level of the Rocket Pass. The R3MX possesses the Hybrid hitbox, so it strikes the ball similarly to battle cars like the Venom and X-Devil. Meanwhile the new arena, Neon Fields, is a colorful field that reacts to the music being played during the match.

Neon Fields interacts with Rocket League Radio and each individual player's player anthem, reacting to songs as they play.

Really, music is the overall theme of Season 2. For example, several new goal explosions, battle car decals, wheels, and boosts in the Rocket Pass all relate to music. This theme most comes through in the brand-new player anthems. You can now assign yourself a player anthem, a song that will play when you score a goal, get an epic save, or earn MVP for a match.

For the full list of changes implemented in Season 2, check out the patch notes. We've listed them below.
