Rocket League Update v1.96 Live, Patch Notes Revealed

A new Rocket League update is live on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X, and it "prepares" the game for the upcoming Formula 1 and NASCAR content coming to the game this month. Dubbed v1.96, the update also makes some changes to the game, and of course, fixes some bugs as well.

In regards to the former, Salty Shores (Night) has been added to the rotation in all playlists, while Wasteland and Farmstead will now appear less frequently in some playlists, though which specifically, isn't divulged. Lastly, Neon Fields and Forbidden Temple (Day) have been removed from the game until "additional revisions" are made.

For those trading items, it will now also be clearer which items can and can not be traded to other players while on the trade-in page.
