Last week, developer Psyonix hinted at the upcoming release of Rocket League's next big update. The Esports Shop Update is set to introduce some new features to the motorized soccer game. On Wednesday, Psyonix went more in-depth on one of the update's central features: the actual Esports Shop itself.

The Esports Shop will show up in the main menu within the main Shop. This sub-menu will feature six in-game items, which will rotate on a daily basis. These items include various cosmetic parts, each representing a variety of some of the top Rocket League Championship Series teams. These teams include:

  • Cloud9
  • Team Dignitas
  • Evil Geniuses
  • G2 Esports
  • Ghost Gaming
  • Mousesports
  • NRG Esports
  • Rogue
  • Splyce
  • Team SoloMid
  • Team Vitality

For the Esports Shop's first few days, each team will have two decals, one Player Banner, and different sets of Wheels available for purchase. These items must be purchased with the new Esports Tokens currency, with 100 Tokens availble for $0.99 and additional token bundles available. Due to the nature of the unique currency, items purchased from the Esports Shop cannot be traded.

RLCS Season 7

That makes this a good time to note that the Rocket League Championship Series is currently going strong, with Psyonix recently announcing that the Season 7 World Championship will be held in Newark, New Jersey. The next RLCS World Champion will be crowned at the Prudential Center from June 21-23. Particularly worth noting is that the the RLCS World Championship will now change formats, moving away from double elimination and instead utilizing Group Stages that lead into a single elimination format. More details can be found on the Rocket League Esports website.

As for the Esports Shop Update, that is slated to release on April 16, just one day before Rocket Pass 3. More information about the Esports Shop can be found on the aforementioned Rocket League Esports website.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I put over 1k hours into this game, but I gotta say; for the amount of money they have to be making, they could have a much higher prize pool and more non-standard features, maps etc. Game is kinda stale at this point.

        Psyonix should add the "Lethamyr maps" playlist. Those are definitely different.

        But seriously, with untradable rocket pass items clogging up my inventory I just want a intentory management update / overhaul.
