The Year of the Ox Has Come to Rocket League

Rocket League Has Entered the Year of the Ox

Psyonix has officially updated Rocket League with a new event celebrating Chinese New Year as we enter the Year of the Ox. The Lucky Lanterns event includes new challenges, new themed items, and returning game modes. The new event runs from now until March 1st, giving fans plenty of time to unlock the new gear. Rocket League is available right now for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Mac, and PC.

The new limited-time-modes brought to Rocket League with The Lucky Lanterns event include the 2v2 Heatseeker game mode which is currently live and will last until February 22nd. Once Heatseeker is out of rotation, the 3v3 mode Super Cube will rule the roost until the end of the Lucky Lanterns event on March 1st. There is also a new arena variant for fans to compete on known as the Forbidden Temple (Day).

“Celebrate the Year of the Ox in our Lucky Lanterns in-game event LIVE NOW! said the official Rocket League Twitter account. “Complete Event Challenges, unlock themed items, and jump into a game of Heatseeker LTM.” While Heatseeker has been in the game mode rotation in the past, it’s nice to see it return with The Lucky Lanterns event. Some of the new in-game cosmetics RL fans are already progressing towards include the Lucky Cat and Ozzy Ox Toppers, the Lantern Lift and Cherry Blosson Boosts, the Temple Guardian Player Banner.
