Developers Psyonix have announced today that the Rocket League Autumn update will launch on September 28.

It will comes a range of new changes, as well as being the point on PS4, Xbox One and PC when Season 5 ends and Season 6 will start.

It’s been awhile since the game saw a major patch released on PS4 and Xbox One, with Psyonix planning a few change before the start of October.

The new Rocket League update will debut a new 'Events' system, which introduces limited-time events that provide players with the opportunity to earn additional Battle-Car customisations. 

A new item will be essential to this process, with the Decryptor allowing players to unlock any unopened crate in their inventory without having to purchase a Key. 

Following the Autumn Update, players will also have the opportunity to help test two major upcoming features. 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.

Here’s a breakdown on a few other Rocket League changes coming with the Autumn update:

The Autumn Update features a ton of new content including:

  • Farmstead, a new Seasonal Arena available in Competitive, Casual, and Private matches for a limited time.
  • More than 90 free new Customisation Items available as Uncommon, Rare, and Very Rare drops after online matches or from Trade-Ins
  • The introduction of Player Banners, a new player customisation 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

As mentioned above, this new patch will also usher in the start of Season 6, which will be a little different to Season 5.

“To kick off the new season, we are running a soft reset on all accounts that have previously placed in any Competitive Playlist,” a message from Psyonix explains. 

“This means every player will need to complete a set of ten placement matches per Playlist, similar to when you play in a Competitive Playlist for the first time. 

“This soft reset will help calibrate the entire player population for the new season, which will end in early 2018.”

Here are the new Season 5 rewards, as confirmed by Psyonix:

  • Bronze I or higher – Season 5 Bronze Player Banner
  • Silver I or higher – Season 5 Silver Player Banner + lower Banners
  • Gold I or higher – Season 5 Gold Player Banner + lower Banners
  • Platinum I or higher – Season 5 Platinum Player Banner + lower Banners
  • Diamond I or higher – Season 5 Diamond Player Banner + lower Banners
  • Champion – Season 5 Champion Player Banner + lower Banners
  • Grand Champion – 'Season 5 Grand Champion' in-game Title + Grand Champion Player Banner + lower Banners.
