The next big Rocket League update is dropping on Feb. 1, Psyonix announced today. It will bring new items, content, and quality of life improvements to the game.

The main appeal of this update, outside of the changes to the gameplay, will be the addition of Fennec Decals in the Esports Shop. Once the update goes live, players will be able to purchase decals for the Fennec for each team featured in the Esports Shop, which also no longer rotates and will feature all items for all available teams. 

Psyonix has also taken player feedback into consideration and is making some gameplay changes to improve the general player experience across the board, specifically in regard to the effects and lighting in Neon Fields. 

In this update, a new settings option called “Effect Intensity” will be introduced to adjust the intensity and motion of visuals. Players will also be able to change this setting to a Default or Low preset, which will enact the following when Low is selected. 

  • Disables all pulsing effects
  • Disables all flashing lights
  • Reduces or disables moving FX/lights/background visuals 
  • Reduces brightness or intensity of background lights 

The update is scheduled to launch at 6pm CT on Feb. 1, though that’s still subject to first-party certification for several tie-ins.
