Full Patch Notes

Looking for the Patch Notes for the newest Rocket League update ahead of Season 3? We've got you covered with a full list of them below.

Season 3 Start Time & Date

The update that these Patch Notes refer to is out right now but Rocket League Season 3 hasn't started just yet.

We know it's due to kick off on April 7th, but what time are we expecting the new Competitive Season and Rocket Pass to appear?

Thankfully, it isn't too far away. Rocket League Season 3 is due to start at around 11:00 EST / 16:00 BST and any Season 2 Rewards should be available soon after that. This is when everything will go live, too.

Patch Notes Highlights

The addition of new Frame Rate Options for PC Rocket League players is one of the biggest changes that has been made to the game outside of the trading overhaul.

The new FPS Menu aims to have pre-established Frame Rate Options for players to choose from as well as an "uncapped" version if their hardware can handle it.

However, the Trade-Ins alterations are the stand-out feature in this set of Patch Notes. Trade-Ins now have their own tab on the Garage Menu and there are new eligibility requirements for how frequently you can trade.

Interestingly, there's also three new Monstercat Antenna that will offer you even more avenues of customisation going forwards.

Full Patch Notes

If you're still looking for a complete run-down of what's in the Rocket League Season 3 Patch Notes, we have the full list here.

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 regardless of the 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 a Ferocity Series Blueprint.
