Rocket League’s momentum seems to show no signs of stopping as the popular esports title has gone live with its sixth official season since the reboot. Players can expect more chaos, carnage, and content in the newest major update.

The success and longevity of Rocket League surely can’t have been foreseen when Psyonix’s addictive football/car hybrid launched way back in 2015. The game positively soared as a stalwart in the esports department and going free-to-play effectively relaunched the game to achieve even more fame and fortune.

Now in 2022, Rocket League is now fully in its sixth full season since the free-to-play initiative launched. As usual, expect all the wonderful delights that come with a new season of competitive vehicular football.

Rocket League Season 6 release date

After a long, long gap since Season 5, Rocket League Season 6 went live on March 9, 2022.

Unlike other live-service games such as Fortnite and Warzone, Rocket League isn’t too stringent when it comes to the length of seasons. Season 2 to 3 was two months, Season 3 to 4 was four months, and Season 4 to 5 was three months.

Rocket League Season 6 theme

Rocket League Season 6 has introduced a new, colorful animated theme for its latest wave of content.

One of the fun elements of every new Rocket League season is seeing what funky and flashy cosmetic items players will be able to unlock and display. So far, we’ve had a music-themed season, a racing theme, a western theme, and a space theme.

A wacky trailer from the Rocket League team gave a brief insight into the kind of content that could be expected for Rocket League Season 6.

Season 6 Rocket Pass rewards

Obviously tieing into the animation-style of Season 6, the Battle Pass is crammed full of these eye-popping new designs, including the new Nomad van.

Each new season of Rocket League content comes with a handy Rocket Pass for players to get their hands on, featuring a litany of skins, toppers, antennas, and a whole bunch more.
