New Fiesta Latina 2022 Bundle In Rocket League
If you’re not that familiar with Latin American (more specifically Brazilian) music, then Psyonix now offers you a little help. The developers feature some of the most iconic musicians in Rocket League – their vibrant sounds are available as Player Anthems in the game. The following items are part of the Fiesta Latina 2022 pack:
We’ve linked the individual songs (if available on YouTube) so that you can listen to them without booting up Rocket League. But you don’t have to keep your browser or another app open in the background all the time. During the Fiesta Latina event, these songs will also be played on the Rocket League Radio.
From September 21st to October 17th, the festival will take place in-game – you can claim the free pack anytime during this period. Of course, the three songs mentioned above are already available on Spotify and other streaming services.
Goals For Change: Online Tournament For A Good Cause
The Fiesta Latina event continues with an online invitational tournament. The Goals for Change: Campeonato de las Américas takes place from October 4th to 13th and focuses on the good cause. Participating streamers don’t receive a prize, just a portion of the $25,000 prize pool – which they then donate to a charity of their choice.
If you miss all the eSports action right now (I mean the Rocket League World Championship has just ended and the RLCS Season 2022/23 hasn’t started, yet), you can at least watch this tournament live. You will find the English broadcast on the Rocket League Twitch Channel. For our Spanish friends, there is an exclusive broadcast on the Rocket Street Twitch Channel.
In addition, the developers are teasing some other new content.

A quick Google search reveals that this used to be a popular Mexican TV series that ran from 1973 to 1979 and parodied superhero shows. Superheroes and Rocket League? Wait, that rings a bell. Ah yes, recently Batman and his Batmobile returned to the arena…
