Rocket League is going to the beach with a new arena on May 29th

By - | Views: 4,552

Salty Shores is the name of the new arena heading to Rocket League with the update due on May 29th and it looks lovely. This isn't some seasonal special either, it's a new permanent addition to the online playlists.

Check out their little trailer:

On the same date, they will also be giving out rewards for the Competitive Season 7 along with the start of Season 8. There's going to be a new 'Impact' crate, fresh music additions to the already fantastic soundtrack (seriously, it's divine) and a Report Server button if you get a particularly rubbish server.

On top of that, the next in-game event is now confirmed for June 11th called 'Beach Blast', but they're not giving out many details on that just yet.

As a reminder, you can pick up a copy of Rocket League cheap in the The Humble Hooked on Multiplayer 2018 Bundle along with some other titles.

I gotta say that I'm really fed up with this game since they decided to "equalize" all maps so it's always the same size and the same shape. I was a great fan of the Neo Tokyo map when it was still different from most of the standard maps. But as always, "pro league" is way too important for the publisher and so they decided that all maps need to be of the same shape. This makes the game incredibly boring for me.

What about playing Rumble mode?

There's also Rocket Labs in casual for the properly weird arenas. But I do agree that the change was unnecessary. I still quite enjoy the game though. With friends and in small doses.
