Alongside these new cars celebrating NASCAR and Formula 1, the Rocket League team is also adding a "speed demon" of its own in the Tyranno. This new "master of dash with a Dominus hitbox" is part of the Season 3 Rocket Pass, which will get a full reveal next week.
Season 3 will also see a newly redesigned DFH Stadium (Circuit), which has been "outfitted with a track and all the pageantry found trackside during a championship Sunday." This arena will be added to the Casual and Competitive Playlists, Private Matches, and Freeplay at the start of Season 3.
This news follows Psyonix's reveal of Rocket League Sideswipe, a new standalone game for mobile that allows players to compete in two-minute 1v1 or 2v2 matches using touchscreen controls that will "be familiar to veteran players; while being intuitive for newcomers."
