Rocket League update 1.40 is now available to download across all platforms.

The file weighs in at 1.718GB for PS4, but doesn’t actually appear to have many additions, other than a few minor bug fixes. The update applies to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC versions too.

The new update follows the addition of Velocity Crate items, which take their inspiration from the 80s. You can now enjoy new decals, wheels and goal explosions in these brand new crates.
