Aside from the new game mode, this Rocket League new update also adds Easter-themed items like Easter Egg Antenna, Easter Basket Topper and Bunny Ears Topper.

Psyonix Is Against Betting In Rocket League

Betting site Unikrn, the leader in eSports betting, recently announced that people in Australia can bet real money on Rocket League matches in the competitive scene. Psyonix is not happy about the news and states that they are neither affiliated with Unikrn nor support online betting for Rocket League. Unikrn CEO Rahul Sood's defends that this is due to their love for the game.

According to PVPlive, Psyonix's nervousness about eSports betting may be due to the incident last year. A potential legal action from Washington State Gambling commission was filed against Valve, threatening to take Steam's servers down if they do not stop "skin gambling" through their Steam Platform system. Many gambling cases around the eSports scene have been investigated and prosecuted and Psyonix does not want anything to do with it. Still, it will be hard for them to stop others from using Rocket League as a betting platform.
