Rocket League Season 3 Patch Notes Revealed, Update Live

Rocket League Season 3 won't be fully live and running until tomorrow in the popular video game, but ahead of its release, the big update itself is available across the various platforms that the game can be played on. When the Rocket Pass does go live, it will add a new car, but before that this update most notably adds a brand-new trade-in system that should make it easier and more rewarding to get rid of unwanted inventory items.

Beyond this update isn't of extreme consequence. It does come with other new additions, new music, bug fixes, and more, but none of it's very game-changing nor will it really improve the overall experience of the game. That said, when measured by the length of the patch notes, this is certainly one of the bigger updates in weeks.

Below, you can check out the update's full patch notes, courtesy of Psyonix:

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 Blueprin
