As seen in the trailer, Psyonix is adding a new arena called ‘Champions Field’ to the lineup is available in casual, private and competitive matches once the update arrives. For those playing Rocket League on an eSports level, the new arena will be available from the start of season 5 which also begins on July 5th.

The new additions will be obtainable via ‘Overdrive crates’, which will contain the new item drops released in the latest patch. Speaking of new items, they’ll also be adding some long-anticipated customization options to the game. Arriving in the new update, players will be able to choose the look and color of their wheel’s tracks and the sound their car engines make.

Last but not least, Psyonix is also adding 18 new songs by Monstercat to the game’s already stellar in-game radio station, ‘Rocket League Radio.’ Though the new song list has not been released, it is likely that they will be auditoraly consistent with the game’s current music selection. Did somebody say ‘Solar Eclipses’?
