F1 & NASCAR Aren't Coming Yet

Rocket League Season 3 is starting, but you should know not to expect the F1 Fan Pack and NASCAR collaborations to appear on Day One.

Despite them both being pushed heavily in the marketing for the new season, they're not actually integral to the Rocket Pass or Season 3 content.

Rather, both of them will be coming in May 2021 as opposed to at the start of Season 3 on April 7th.

NEW: The new Trade-In button will streamline the process
"In the new Trade In menu, you'll see your tradable inventory organized into three categories: Core Items, Tournament Items, and Blueprints. Your items in each of these categories are organized by rarity. This new menu displays how many Trade Ins you have available, making it much easier to trade your items in quickly and efficiently.
Simply select the rarity of the item you would like to receive from the Trade In. Then, you can select your items and trade them in for an item of higher rarity. You can repeat this same process for your items earned from Competitive Tournaments, as well as Blueprints."
