Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Rocket League’s next season, Season 3 (actually the 17th season, but it’s the third since the game went free-to-play) kicks off on April 7. In May, Psyonix will bring in Formula One and NASCAR as licensing partners, with cars to match the redesigned stadium players get a week from Wednesday.

Off the bat, the Season 3 Rocket Pass will offer a new vehicle, Tyranno, a muscle car chassis that uses the Dominus hitbox (as many vehicles in Rocket League do). A full reveal of the Season 3 pass is coming next week, Psyonix said.

The new arena is a redesigned DFH Stadium, called DFH Stadium (Circuit), which now includes a track “and all the pageantry found trackside during a championship Sunday.” Players will find DFH Stadium (Circuit) in the casual and competitive playlists, and is available for private matches and in freeplay once Season 3 gets going.

A game update on Tuesday, April 6 at 4 p.m. PDT will get Rocket League ready for Season 3; Season 2’s competitive rewards will be granted shortly after Season 3 goes live, and the new Competitive Season and its rewards begin then, too.
