Rocket League

Rocket League has just expanded its location roster and this free new Arena is quite literally out of this world.

Make your way to Starbase Arc to play further matches in an all-new area inspired by one of Psyonix’s earlier mobile titles, the critically acclaimed Arc Squadron.

Set in a massive octagonal space station, orbiting a distant desert planet in a far away galaxy, the Starbase Arc Arena features huge, epic starship battles, floating planetoids and interstellar laser shows to create one of the most epic and visually stunning Rocket League atmospheres to date.

The Starbase Arc update also delivers one of the most requested community features of all time; Custom Training Mode. This free new mode will be available on all platforms and allows players to create their own training sequence. You will be able to name, design, edit and upload your sequence for other Rocket League players to access via a unique alphanumeric code. Full details on this exciting new feature can be found here.

Among other features, the Starbase Arc update will introduce an Arena preference selector, where players can like or dislike Arenas to alter the odds of playing them in online matches. The update will also bring the ‘Champion Series IV’ crate which could land you a new Import Battle-Car among other items, redesigned SARPBC vehicles; X-Devil and Gizmo and a new Colourblind Mode.

In addition to this, two new variant Arenas will be introduced, ‘Wasteland (Night)’ and ‘Utopia Coliseum (Snowy)’, which will be accessible in Exhibition and Private matches and all ranked playlists.

So, while the Starbase Arc update is free and should be available now, Psyonix have also released a new Premium Battle-car as paid DLC. The Vulcan, pictured at the top of this post, should be available now and will set you back a princely $1.99 / £1.59 or equivalent.
