Rocket League upcoming patch & DLC – UPDATE
With over 4 million downloads across PlayStation 4 and PC, over 183,000 concurrent players, and a whole lot of bread; Psyonix is almost ready to push out a major patch, followed by two DLC packages.
This article will focus on everything you need know about the upcoming patch & DLC's, and other interesting facts.
The upcoming patch will include the following:
Player's win/loss ratio on the stats page will now be displayed as a win percentage instead [source]
A "Mouse Sensitivity" setting in the options menu for PC users [source]
Fixed the "Virtuoso" achievement not unlocking on PC [source]
Fixed item tracking stats for online games [source]
Punishments for players who leave during ranked matches [source] (not 100% confirmed for the next patch)
UPDATE: Bots will adjust skill levels to match the average skill level of players currently in the game [source]
Psyonix has also announced a couple of things they plan on releasing or working on in the near future. Things such as:
3v3 team ranked [source]
A spectator mode [source]
Solution for playing with friends on other platforms [source]
"Thanks For Not Killing Us" items for players who suffered from the server outages [source 1] [source 2] - One of these items include skull wheels [view here]
The two DLC packages, which are set to release in a couple of weeks, include:
Free Utopia-inspired map DLC Pack: The map will not have a circular form (like it did in SARPBC), but will rather have a regular stadium-type form [source]
Paid "Supersonic Fury" DLC Pack: Includes two new vehicles. The concept render for the first vehicle can be viewed here. The second vehicle will be a muscle car [source]
UPDATE: Second vehicle can now be seen here.
Pearlescent paint is also in the works, and is said to be released in the first DLC pack [source]
That concludes all the new features in the upcoming updates for Rocket League.

EDIT: This is not an official changelog. Just a list of things we were able to find on Twitter and Psyonix Forum.
UPDATE: We misunderstood the crossplatform matchmaking tweet. Psyonix is working on a solution to let friends who play on different platforms play together. We're sorry if we confused somebody in talking about crossplatform parties. A solution for playing together could be something like this idea from witnessmenow: https://www.reddit.com/r/RocketLeague/comments/3cuan7/idea_for_the_cross_play_party_issue/
