Rocket League Releases Big Update for Fennec Players

A new Rocket League update is live on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC, and is also downloadable via Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PS5. To accompany the update, Psyonix and Epic Games have released the official patch notes revealing everything the update does. And as you can see via the patch notes below, the update is extra relevant for Fennec players.

As Psyonix notes in "the headlines" section of the patch notes, the update adds eSports decals for the Fennec and adds a much-needed "effect intensity" to the video settings of the game. Lastly, and most timely, it adds new NFL content right in time for the Tom Brady Bowl.

In addition to new content and features, there are also other changes and updates, including to the Rocket Pass. And of course, there are also plenty of bug fixes.
