Rocket League has announced the introduction of Fennec decals to the Esports Shop coming in the 1st February update.
The Esports Shop got a major overhaul back in early December when the format of the shop changed from a random wheel of random team items changing every 24 - 48 hrs to a full menu of à la carte teams, wheels, decals and banners.
The Fennec joins the Dominus and the Octane as the only bodies with official esports decals. The Fennec Esports decal will be available for all North American and European regions and teams in the Esports Shop valued at 300 Esports Tokens.
With the addition of the Fennec decal, what are arguably the Top 3 most popular in-game battle-cars are all Esports-ready.
The Fennec was introduced during the Radical Summer event back in 2019. Mainly because of its sharp looks and Octane-hitbox, the Fennec took Rocket League by storm as one of the most popular non-default cars in the game.
The update will also bring minor tweaks to the new Season 2 pitch, Neon Fields. Its release was met with pushback from the community due to the nature of the theme.
The EDM festival-esque light shows, music and moving textures were deemed too distracting by the player base.
Therefore, Psyonix is offering Rocket League players the option in the Options Menu called “Effects Intensity” for this specific arena. The option can be switched between “Default” and “Low” with “Low” offering the following results:
Disables all pulsing effects
Disables all flashing lights
Reduces or disables moving FX/lights/background visuals
Reduces brightness or intensity of background lights
While this second season since the free-to-play update has been moving mostly in the right direction, there is still work to do to push our favourite socCar videogame to the next level.
Make sure to catch the update as it goes live 1st February at 4 pm PST (2nd Feb at 12 a.m. UTC).
