Rocket League Lucky Lanterns 2021 Forbidden Temple
The update will also bring changes to the well-renowned Forbidden Temple arena with tweaks in design, textures and lighting, adding a Day version of the field instead of the usual Dusk look.
Rocket League Lucky Lanterns 2021 Limited Time Modes
Rocket League will also offer not one, but two Limited Time Modes (or LTMs) during the event.
Lucky Lanterns will showcase the beloved Heatseeker mode in its 2v2 format from 11-22nd February and an old friend of Psyonix -- Super Cube 3v3 from 22nd February to 1st March.
Super Cube is described as a goofy game mode that hasn’t seen the light of day in Rocket League servers since its inception in 2015. It features the game ball being replaced by a cubic shape, and its maximum speed and bounciness have increased.
Rocket League Lucky Lanterns 2021 Item Shop
With a free player banner Short Fuse, a free Shen avatar border up for grabs in the item shop and the return of the highly-exclusive Lantern Lift and Paper Dragon goal explosions (and its painted cousins) to buy for a limited time, the item shop will be loaded to say the least, so keep an eye out for those!
Make sure to catch everything while the Year of the Ox’s celebrations are on and tell a friend so you can cash in on as many goodies as possible. Good luck and have fun!
