We’ve been talking about the Rocket League Dropshot Update for some time. I got to try the new mode out at PAX East, I talked to one of the developers behind it, and overall it’s looking like one of the biggest and best updates the game has gotten. Now we’re just a few hours away from its release and Psyonix has issued the Rocket League Update 1.31 patch notes, showing that more than just Dropshot and Competitive Season 4 is included.
You can read the whole thing right here. The headlines are certainly the new Dropshot mode, which changes up how the entire game of Rocket League is played. Featuring no goals on the map, players have to chip away at the floor in order to create their own goals. It’s competitive, balanced, and a whole lot of fun.
Along with this comes the long awaited end to Competitive Season 3, which has lasted longer than the first two seasons combined. Players will get special wheels based on the highest rank that they achieved throughout the entire season. Rocket League Competitive Season 4 will then begin, with a new button on the main menu to show when RLCS matches are airing live.
Going even further though, Rocket League Update 1.31 removes Neo Tokyo from standard online play. It will be replaced eventually with a more regulation styled map, removing the large shoulder areas that made the map tough to play without big changes to strategy. There will also be special Easter items available as random drops until April 17th. And finally a new crate has been added. The Turbo Crate contains the new Endo car that can come in painted varieties.
There’s still some smaller changes contained in the patch notes though, so check them out for the complete look at this new Rocket League Update.
