[ad_1]

Psyonix released the patch notes for Rocket League Season 7, which includes a brand-new Rocket Pass, arena, car, and challenges.

Rocket League Season 7 is live now and Psyonix has released the full patch notes for the game’s next massive season.

It looks like Psyonix is going all-out for Season 7, with the whole aesthetic being gilded and gold-trimmed – from the logo to the all-new vehicle.

Psyonix’s full patch notes detail everything coming in Season 7, including Pride Month additions, Season 6 competitive rewards, new Tournaments, and much more.

It’s a touch of gold for Rocket League Season 7 and the rewards are thematically appropriate.

First and foremost, the Season 7 Rocket Pass is finally live. The Rocket Pass features a brand new car called the ‘Maestro.’

The Maestro is a Limited rarity vehicle that features the ‘Gold’ paint variant, in line with the Season 7 theme. Maestro uses the ‘Dominus’ body type and hitbox.

There is also a new arena variant called the ‘Utopia Coliseum (Gilded)’ Arena which is now live in Online Playlists, Private Matches, and Free Play.

The Utopia Coliseum was one of Rocket League’s first free arenas back in 2015 so it’s nice to see the arena get some love so long after release.

The Utopia Coliseum (Gilded) variant is live now in both Online and offline Playlists.

In terms of gameplay updates, Psyonix has made changes to Custom Training, including the ability to reset progress on any training pack as well as adding a more convenient way to navigate out of Custom Training.

Psyonix also announced Rocket League Season 7 brings more Pride Month-themed content, including a free “Shine Through’ Bundle which is available in the Item Shop from June 15 at 9 AM PST through July 12.

The patch notes also revealed that new blueprint items from the ‘Select Favorites 2’ Series will start releasing on June 16 at 9 a.m. PST.
