This week, independent developer and publisher, Psyonix, had a few announcements to share, including the release date of Rocket Pass 3 and a brand-new Esports Shop. More specifically, and pending certification, Psyonix will release a new "Esports Shop Update" on April 16, and a day later the new Challenge System and Rocket Pass 3 will go live.
According to Psyonix, the new Esports Shop will feature items representing various teams from the Rocket League Esports ecosystem. Psyonix says more information, including partners and items, will be revealed sometime this coming week. However, you'd assume teams such as Dignitas, Cloud9, Rogue, Team Vitality, NRG, and more will be represented.
Meanwhile, Rocket Pass 3 will go live in April 17 and finally add the new Challenge System, which will also be revealed this coming week.
