On June 20th Rocket League developers Psyonix will be dropping what they are calling the biggest update in the game’s history. The main feature is a new level, entitled Neo Tokyo. To quote the developers: “The cyberpunk-inspired stadium was originally part of our “Rocket Labs” Playlist as “Underpass,” but it has now been made even better with streamlined gameplay and highly-detailed environments!”
In addition to this hip new stage this update adds a ton of stuff to Rocket League. There are the highly touted DLC cars Masamune and Esper, which will only be initially available to those who pick up Rocket League’s Collector’s Edition which will be available on June 24 in Europe and July 5 in North America. The item drop system has been expanded to not only include additional car toppers to collect, but to allow players to trade in items which they have collected multiples of for rarer items. And now, at the end of each game, players will be treated to a spotlight celebration screen, which will grant each player in the winning team a unique title based on their actions in the game.
There really is a bunch of new stuff packed into this update, the arrival of which will kick off Competitive Season 3. If you are interested in the finer details, check out the video above, or click on over to the official page Psyonix created to herald this release.
