As always, the release of a new season in Rocket League brings an abundance of new content, so check out the list below to see everything new that is arriving in Season 12:

  • Porsche 911 Turbo car
  • Neo Tokyo (Hacked) Area variant
  • The return of the Haunted Hallows in-game event
  • Season 11 Competitive Rewards
  • New Rocket Pass

As you can probably imagine, the new Porsche 911 Turbo car is the highlight of Season 12, and you can unlock it straight away by getting the Rocket Pass Premium - so we can imagine that will be a popular choice for many.

It is in celebration of Porsche's 75th anniversary, so what better way to commemorate the birthday than scoring some wonder goals with the car?

Alongside this, we will see a new map variant in the form of Neo Tokyo (Hacked), letting players experience some new digital disruption when playing, which is always exciting.

The new event that is arriving in Rocket League Season 12 is Haunted Hallows. This will now be the 7th time that the event has appeared in the game, as it was the first all the way back in 2017 and has reappeared every single year since.

It will likely arrive with a bunch of new Halloween-themed cosmetic items, so you can get your cars prepared for the spooky season ahead, so make sure that you complete all of the challenges to collect the set.

While we do not have a concrete release date right now, we can assume that it will likely start around mid-October, as that is what has happened in the six previous entries. Based on previous dates, we can safely predict that it will start between October 16 and October 20, but we will make sure to let you know when any concrete information arises.

That wraps up everything you need to know about Rocket League Season 12, so make sure to jump in as soon as it starts to enjoy all of the action and new content.
