    Psyonix's Rocket League, which recently became the most downloaded free PSN game in history, is set for a new patch after the game's initial huge success.

    Having taken both PSN and Steam by storm last month, and rewarded with a dedicated forum right here at RaceDepartment, the latest patch introduces a few cosmetic fixes and changes, whilst also punishing those who quit out early of ranked matches, amongst many minor changes.

    However most players will be more excited to hear of the free DLC map that will be released named the 'Utopia Colosseum', modeled after Roman coliseums.

    In addition to the patch Psyonix is also planning to release a paid DLC named the 'Supersonic Fury' pack containing two new cars known as the Dominus and the Takumi, two new rocket boosts, two new wheel sets and five new paint types. The DLC is expected to cost $3.99.

    As for the patch, a full list of the changes can be found below:

  2. The rocket boosts are all the same in terms of performance? So are just visual things? Because I hope there isn't pay to win with the dlc that introduces two new rocket boosts for who buys the dlc, hoping it remains just cosmetic.
