Rocket League February Update Arrives, New Season Begins


Psyonix has launched the Rocket League February update, and with it comes a few changes including a new competitive season. Ranks have been reset, but once you complete your 10 placement games you’ll probably find yourself in the same rank as where you were, as the back-end did not receive a hard reset this time.

For players who participated in Rocket League’s previous season, you will be awarded with a new set of wheels for whichever rank you were able to make, as well as all earlier ranks. Meaning if you are good enough to hit Diamond for example, you’ll get those wheels as well as Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. The wheels are non-tradeable.

Season 6 Grand Champions will also receive the “Season 6 Grand Champion” title which appears under your name in games.

There are also some minor bug fixes in the Rocket League February update, as well as known issues that will be fixed in the next update. You can read about these after the drop.
