Prepare for some summer shenanigans in Rocket League – developer Psyonix has revealed an all-new arena named Salty Shores, which will be dropping next Tuesday, May 29.
“As our sunniest map to date,” Psyonix says, “Salty Shores should keep the good vibes going year-round as a permanent addition to all-online playlist.”
This new update sets the stage for the Beach Blast event, which launches on all platforms on June 11. It will also come with new music from the Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 3 EP to bring those sunny vibes to the game’s soundtrack.
Meanwhile, Competitive Season 8 is readying for kick-off, while Season 7’s rewards will also be winging their way to players with the launch of the event.

In addition to this new content, the Beach Blast update will also see the introduction of a new ‘Impact Crate’, which features the import Battle-Car, Twinzer, as a limited-drop. A host of quality-of-life tweaks are also on the way including the addition of a ‘Report Server’ button, aimed at reducing players’ connection woes.
Rocket League’s Salty Shores update will be free for all PC players when it launches on Tuesday, May 29th.
This event launches just after the Rocket League World Championship finals, which take place at London’s Copper Box Arena on June 8-10. The conclusion to the game’s fifth competitive season will see one pro team walk away with a massive prize pool of $250,000, promising some of the most intense RLCS clashes yet.
