Rocket League Update

Rocket league Patch 1.17 is now available to download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It is a massive patch that brings new DLCs including the “NBA Flag Pack,” logos and much more. We also have a plethora of fixes, improvements and changes made to Rocket League.

Players will now be able to save replays mid-game, replay can be renamed, Hoops is now available in Casual Playlist.

Here are some notable sections of the changelog:

GENERAL

The “Hoops” 2v2 mode has been added as an unranked playlist, and is also available in Private Matches and Exhibition mode at any team size.
Exhibition and Private Match now have a “Game Mode” selector. The mode you select determines which maps you can choose – for instance, “Hoops” can only be played on the “Dunk House” map.
During Overtime, the in-game UI clock now counts upwards to indicate how long the overtime has lasted.
New “Cosmic” Arena has been added to the “Rocket Labs” playlist
After scoring in Free Play, there will no longer be a 3/2/1 countdown.

STATS

“Dunks” stats has been added with this DLC.
When a player scores a basket/goal with any NBA flag equipped, it will increase your stat on that NBA flag.

UI/ UX

Players can now trigger an automatic replay save mid-game, so they don’t have to wait until the match concludes and remember to save it then.
Auto-Save is triggered by holding the activation button during gameplay. When triggered, the save will be queued and a message will appear in the chatbox indicating the action. A replay tick mark is automatically added to the replay at the timestamp the player triggered the autosave.
Players can now manually name (and rename) replays.
Select “Save Replay” at the end of game and the user can now provide a custom name.
Users can also rename replays in the frontend.
Mouse/Keyboard – A pencil icon appears when mousing over a replay. Clicking the Pencil brings up the rename dialog.
Controller – Pressing Triangle button on the Replay menu brings up the rename dialog.

GENERAL

Spectators will no longer see Camera Shake in Player View if the option is disabled
Fixed a rare issue that would allow the ball to exit the arena
