Rocket League screenshot of the new LAN mode on PC

After what feels like an eternity of waiting Rocket League will soon start supporting local multiplayer. In other words, you'll be able to host and join LAN matches for up to eight players without ever needing to connect to the Internet! Besides this fairly major addition the update will also bring in a brand new seasonal map by the name of Farmstead, as well as numerous improvements to both Wasteland and Starbase Arc.

There are also a whole bunch of minor changes to go over, some of which are cosmetic in nature, so its probably for the best that you check out the recently posted teaser trailer. Its not very long, but it will give you a pretty good idea of just what to expect from the Autumn Update. Have a look:

The full list of changes and improvements has not yet been revealed, but on the positive side Psyonix has just announced that the Autumn Update will be coming next week, on September 28th! To you would like to learn more about the LAN mode and the somewhat experimental Director Mode you should head over to the official website. And that's pretty much it as far as concrete information goes. All that remains now is to sit and wait for the update to finally arrive!
