When Does Rocket League Season 8 Start?


When does Rocket League Season 8 start? Rocket League Season 8 kicks off next Wednesday, Sept. 7 at around 7 p.m. ET. Here is the run-down of Psyonix’s announcement earlier this week and what to expect in the next competitive season. 

Changing up season seven’s luxury car theme, season eight takes a 180, bringing players into the underground soccer scene. Starting with the 90’s inspired Sovereign Heights Arena, this turfed vehicular soccer field is located in the heart of the city's famous Centered Park. Accompanying this edition, is a local street game-themed hoop arena that will be added later in the season.

With over 70 rewards, the Rocket Pass is introducing a variety of “Streetwear” themed cosmetics. Amongst these are new Tournament exclusive Rewards which will include the Sk8s Player Banner and the Hibachi Topper. If lucky, the Black Market Tournament Rewards will unlock a Starliner Decal and Amplitude Goal Explosion.

Rocket League Season 8 Will introduce the Honda Civic Type R. 

Having the same hitbox as the Octane, this hatchback racing car is first-ever real-life car to come included in Rocket Pass Premium. An upgraded Honda Civic Type R-LE is also accessible by leveling through the Rocket Pass Tiers. These cars come with a variety of potential cosmetic pieces such as the EdgeLight package which will give an electrifying glowing effect wrap at the bottom of the car’s body kit. 

With a new season, comes new tournaments. Rocket League is bringing back the The Haunted Hallows event along with a lot of other competitive opportunities for players in the upcoming season.
