Rocket League is loved around the world…but with the addition of the Neo Tokyo update, it’ll be loved even more.
The developer and publisher of Rocket League, Psyonix, have today announced that they will release an enormous free update on Monday, June 20. It’ll come with tons of new features and content, making it the latest update in the history of the game.
Inspired by the cyberpunk dystopias made popular in the 1980s, the “Neo Tokyo” update will be spearheaded by an arena of the very same name. Originally released as part of the “Rocket Labs” experimental Playlist, Neo Tokyo is a reimagined version of the celebrated multi-tiered stadium, “Underpass,” with streamlined gameplay improvements and a beautiful, highly-detailed environment.
But that’s not all as Iin addition to the fantastic new arena, the Neo Tokyo update also includes:
- The beginning of “Season 3” for Competitive Playlists, which resets all skill ratings and rewards last season’s players with exclusive Rocket Boosts that reflect their final rank
- An expanded Item drop system that adds…
- More than 20 “Rare” and “Very Rare” Item types for online, post-game drops
- An easy-to-use “Trade In” system that allows players to exchange multiple Items of one rarity type for an even rarer one.
- New “Painted” Items that offer different color variations on existing Garage favorites like Toppers and Wheels
- Special “Certified” Items that track specific in-game stats and increase in prestige the higher those stats go
- New Quick-Chat customization options that expand player choices for fast, in-game communication
- New Post-Game celebrations that spotlight the winning team and allow them to jump, spin, and boost their car to show off their accomplishments
- “Pillars,” a new experimental Arena that separates the field into three lanes via two massive walls in the middle of the stadium
- A new, in-game “Showroom” that allows players to view and purchase all previously-released and future premium DLC
Eight new Trophies and Achievements on all three platforms
Additionally, you’l also find two Neo Tokyo inspired premium cars that will arrive first to owners of Rocket League Collection’s Edition on Friday, June 24 in Europe and July 5 in North America. “Esper” and “Masamune,” the pair of futuristic vehicles will bring a distinctive anime style to the ever-growing collection of playable vehicles and they join the two previously-announced Battle-Cars, “Marauder” and “Aftershock,” as timed exclusives for the retail release. Each one will cost the equivalent of $1.99 and will be available from July 18th.
