Psyonix showed a teaser of what is new in Season 5 of the popular game: Rocket League. There will be a special starbase arc complete with special challenges. Looks like Rocket League is taking it to space, with all-new accolades and challenges, which in turn unlocks awesome-looking rewards. There will also be a special Rocket Pass with even better rewards.
The new season will start on November 17th, I expect it to follow at the same time as prior updates: 8 am PDT / 11 am EST / 4 pm GMT. The Season 5 Rocket Pass is packed full of space-like items like the Spacedirt Paint Finish, Hyperspace Animated Decal that transform with your car’s speed, and a new Goal Explosion that is ready to fully take over: Cosmosis. The day after Season 5 begins, be on the lookout for an LTM with a new twist on Heatseeker thanks to three new Labs Arenas: Barricade, Colossus, and Hourglass. Get ready for Heatseeker Ricochet, featuring Heatseeker action on these new maps that will change up the gameplay.
If you’ve been playing Rocket League throughout Season 4, you’ll earn yourself some additional rewards in Season 5.
Once you’ve completed your placement matches, you’ll earn the following for your rank:
|Rank in Season 4||Season 5 Reward|
|Bronze I or higher||Bronze Wheels|
|Silver I or higher||Gold Wheels and lower wheels|
|Gold I or higher||Platinum Wheels and lower wheels|
|Platinum I or higher||Diamond Wheels and lower wheels|
|Diamond I or higher||Champion Wheels and lower wheels|
|Grand Champion I||Grand Champion Wheels and lower wheels|
|Supersonic Legend||Supersonic Legend Wheels and lower wheels|
There are also title rewards on offer for Grand Champion and Supersonic Legend ranked players.
Players can also earn the Nexus vehicle (Plank hitbox) immediately with the Season 5 Rocket Pass Premium, and it’ll eventually transform into the Nexus SC once you climb the ranks.
