Rocket League released its October Update with Patch 1.68. The update adds new content to the game. For instance, items for Complexity and Spacestation Gaming have been added to the Esports Shop item rotation. The post-game menu also now has the Post-Game Party Up function.

A Limited Time Arena has been added as well with Farmstead (The Upside Down) available in all Online Playlists. Meanwhile Free Play, Local Matches, and Private Matches have the Farmstead (Night) arena available. This is in-line with the start of Haunted Hallows 2019. You can read more about that here.

Arriving with the update is new content for Monstercat (Antennae) which include:

  • Habstrakt
  • Half an Orange
  • Juelz
  • Slushii
  • Tails
  • Throttle
  • Tony Romera

Other changes with patch 1.68 are:

  • Quick Play
    • A ‘Quick Play’ button has been added to the Play menu.
    • Using Quick Play automatically starts a game search using the Playlists and Server Regions selected during your last play session.
    • For new players, Quick Play searches for a 3v3 Standard match in the Casual Playlist using the Recommended server region.
  • Post-Game Party Up
    • After a match ends, you can select ‘Party Up’ in the post-game menu.
    • Selecting Party Up lets your teammates know you want to form a party and continue playing together.
    • If a teammate chooses Party Up before you, selecting this option adds you to that player’s party.
  • Team-Colored Boost Meter
    • This is a new option that can be toggled on and off under Options > Interface > Team-Colored Boost Meter.
    • When turned on, your Boost Meter’s background color changes to your team color.
    • Custom team colors are supported, as is Colorblind Mode.
  • Refreshed News Panel
    • The News Panel has been redesigned.
    • Any new news puts the News Panel in the open position when you start the game.
    • You can toggle the News Panel open and closed using X (Nintendo Switch) / Triangle (PlayStation 4) / or Y (Xbox One).
