De grote Rocket League 2nd Anniversary update is gisteren live gegaan en zojuist heeft men ook de changelog hiervoor vrijgegeven. Eerder kon je al via de trailer, ook weer hieronder te bekijken, zien wat je zoal van deze update kon verwachten. Zo is Champions Field nu beschikbaar in alle playlists en private matches en is Starbase ARC voorzien van nieuwe visuals en een wat donkerder uiterlijk.

Boost pads zijn verder standaard in alle arena’s te vinden en de Overdrive Crate is nu beschikbaar. Voor Rick & Morty fans is er ook goed nieuws, zo zijn er namelijk items beschikbaar als drops na matches, gebaseerd op deze show. Zo kun je jouw auto uitrusten met Rick als antenne of bijvoorbeeld Mr. Meeseeks als topper.

Al met al een erg rijke update, zowel als het gaat om content als bug fixes en veranderingen. Voor een volledig overzicht van de patch, check de changelog hieronder, waarbij je kunt zien dat dit een flinke patch is geworden.
