With Season 7 wrapping up, Rocket League Season 8 has been revealed. In contrast to the last season's luxury theme, Season 8 is all about tuner car culture in the absence of Need for Speed 2022. Launching on 7 September, Rocket League Season 8 includes a new Arena, Competitive Season, and Rocket Pass.

For the first time, the Rocket Pass Premium includes a real-world licensed car: the Honda Civic Type R, which will be available in Octane Hitbox spec.

Levelling up the Rocket Pass Tiers unlocks the track-focused Honda Civic Type R-LE, which boasts a bigger front intake, carbon fibre hood, and rear wing. The Civic Type R-LE can also be fitted with the original white and red Honda Civic Type R wheels.
