Rocket League is known for its futuristic look, but now it’s gonna switch things up this summer with something a bit more colorful and sandy. Meet the brand new free arena that’s coming—Salty Shores. This intro video is pretty cool, since it sports a vintage/retrowave style. Check it out:
This is definitely a departure from the usual Rocket League look, but it’s really nice! Not to mention the new soundtrack from Monstercat is also pretty snappy, as per usual. And did you peep the new beach-buggy style car, the Twinzer?
The new Sandy Shores arena will be accompanied by a few other new features in the upcoming Summer Content Update, which is set to go live on May 29. Here’s a description from Psyonix:
“We’re also bringing you the start of Competitive Season 8, the distribution of Season 7 Rewards, the new ‘Impact’ Crate, fresh beats from the ‘Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 3’ EP and more! You’ll also find some nice quality of life improvements in the mix, including a new ‘Report Server’ button for when servers misbehave during an online match. Our ‘Beach Blast’ in-game Event is coming soon too, but not for a few more weeks — June 11, to be exact! We’ll have more details about Beach Blast closer to the start of the event, so stay tuned!”
