Rocket League 1.94 Update Patch Notes: Season 3 begins

The Rocket League 1.94 update patch notes bring forth Season 3, the game’s newest season of new gear and cosmetics. This season starts soon, but its end date is still a bit away. This is quite a big update, too, as it is over 10 GB on PS4. Here’s what else is in the newest April Rocket League update.

Rocket League 1.94 Update Patch Notes: Season 3 start date and end date

The Rocket League update sets the groundwork for Season 3, which begins on April 7 at 8 AM PT, but Psyonix has not revealed what the end date quite yet. This season promises a whole new swath of cosmetics, including F1 and NASCAR vehicles. A lot of these items can be earned through the Rocket Pass, which is this game’s equivalent to a battle pass. There are free tiers, but almost all of the items are in the premium pass.

But everyone can play on the new DFH Stadium (Circuit), which has tracks around it like an actual race track. It will be in the casual and competitive playlists.

There are also three new Monstercat songs and big changes to the trading system. They’re now in their own section in the Garage and fall into three categories: Core Series, Tournament, and Blueprints.  Not everyone can trade in this new system either as players need to have 50 minutes of online play and need to be at least level 30. There are tiers after that and players that have played more will be able to trade more frequently. Settings will also now sync across platforms.

CHANGES AND UPDATES

Trade In Update

  • Trade Ins are now managed in their own section in the Garage
  • All Trade In-eligible items fall into three categories:
    • Core Series Items
    • Tournament Items
    • Blueprints
  • The Trade In menu displays how many eligible Trade Ins you have, sorted by category and rarity
  • Trade Ins still operate the same way as before:
    • 5 Uncommon = 1 Rare
    • 5 Rare Items = 1 Very Rare
    • 5 Very Rare = 1 Import
    • 5 Imports = 1 Exotic
    • 5 Exotics = 1 Black Market
  • Tournament Items and (revealed) Blueprints can now be traded in regardless of series. The Tournament Item or Blueprint you receive from a Trade In is directly tied to the series of the items you traded in.
    • For example, if you trade in three Ignition Series Blueprints and two Ferocity Series Blueprints, you’ll have a 60% chance to receive an Ignition Series Blueprint and a 40% chance to receive an Ferocity Series Blueprint.
