The release of the first Rocket League downloadable content is just around the corner. Psyonix, the studio behind the surprise sensation for the PlayStation 4 and PC, released the 1.04 patch Tuesday evening with some new features. That list of new features includes a healthy helping of the Supersonic Fury DLC.

The 1.04 patch does fix some bugs with Rocket League, such as some “Connect Failure” issues and a “Private Match” glitch that caused settings to disappear for the Party Leader. However, it does come with free new features and content for the soccer game played by cars. A Spectator mode is now available for Private Matches. The new “Utopia Coliseum” arena has also been added, which gives the game two stadiums to play in now, with more on the way.
Meanwhile, the Supersonic Fury DLC will cost $3.99 and come with two new cars – the America muscle car Dominus and the Japanese street racer Takumi. A number of new decals, paint types, wheels, boosts, and achievements will also be packed in.
Here is the high level overview of the changes to Rocket League with the 1.04 patch. For the nitty gritty details that includes the list of every new country flag, please check out the full patch notes in the game’s Steam community.
