Rocket League, developed by Psyonix, has seen quite a lot of updates and it remains one of the most entertaining multiplayer games that I love to play for short bursts at a time. Last month, the developer revealed that it will finally release the most fan-requested features, transparent goalposts.

Now, it has been revealed that the transparent goalposts will come as part of the game’s Autumn Update, which will release on 28 September 2017. The update is huge, including a tonne of cool new stuff for players and, of course, the end of Competitive Season 5 and the start of Competitive Season 6. As per a Press Release, the highlights of the Autumn Update are:

  • Farmstead, a new Seasonal Arena available in Competitive, Casual, and Private matches for a limited time this Fall
  • More than 90 FREE new Customization Items available as Uncommon, Rare, and Very Rare drops after online matches or from Trade-Ins
  • The introduction of Player Banners, a new player customization feature
  • The End of Competitive Season 5 and the start of Competitive Season 6
  • Standardization of Arenas for Competitive and Casual Online play
  • Transparent Goalposts
  • LAN Support for PC players

But that’s not the only great news for Rocket League fans. The update will also debut a new “Events System”, which provides “limited-time events provide players with the opportunity to earn additional Battle-Car customizations. Using a new item called the 'Decryptor,' players will be able to unlock any unopened crate in their inventory without having to purchase a Key.”

Then, the developer has also shared their plans for the game after the Autumn Update goes live, including the testing of two major upcoming features. The developer explains via a Press Release:

“First, is a brand new 'Party' System that PC players can help test during beta periods after the update goes live. Second, is a new 'Tournaments' system that allows players to create and compete in their own tournaments inside the game client. The Party system will launch shortly after the Autumn update goes live, while the Tournaments Beta will follow it later this fall.”

For a more detailed explanation of the Tournaments Beta and Party System, check out this post.
