Psyonix said its new space-themed update, Starbase ARC, features a new arena that will be free for everyone, as well as a new premium DLC car and a new custom training mode. Rocket League also now supports Steam Workshop, which will allow users to create custom levels for Rocket League Items the game. Finally, Psyonix is offering a “Champion Series IV” Crate packed with exclusive items that will support the developer’s eSports initiatives. Fans can get a look at the new arena and car in the short trailer below.
While the new arena does look pretty interesting, it should be noted that Psyonix got the idea for Starbase ARC from one of the company’s mobile titles, ARC Squadron. The new arena is an octagonally-shaped space station orbiting a desert planet in a distant galaxy, according to a Psyonix press release. The space station will shoot lasers when goals are scored and players who pan the camera up will be able to see starships and planetoids float on by. The trailer also provides a few quick glimpses of the new DLC car, the Vulcan. It unsurprisingly shares the arena’s outer space theme in some of its design elements.
