Neon lights, towering skyscrapers, and retro-futuristic style comes to Rocket League
on June 20 with our largest update in the game's history, “Neo Tokyo.”
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! NOTE: "Neo Tokyo" will also join the Competitive Playlist at release. Watch the trailer below:
In addition to the new arena, the "Neo Tokyo" update also includes the following features that we’ve been previewing over the past month:
• The beginning of "Season 3" for Competitive Playlists, which resets all skill ratings and rewards last season's players with exclusive Rocket Trails that reflect their highest achieved 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 [Blog Coming June 13]
• Eight new Trophies and Achievements on all three platforms [Blog Coming June 15]
Following our "Neo Tokyo" update, we’ll also release two "Neo Tokyo"-inspired premium cars that will be available first to owners of Rocket League
Collection's Edition on June 24 in Europe and July 5 in North America.
Known as "Esper" and "Masamune," the pair of futuristic vehicles will bring a fresh anime aesthetic to Rocket League
's ever-growing collection of playable vehicles. They join the two previously-announced Battle-Cars, "Marauder" and "Aftershock," as timed exclusives for the retail release. Each Battle-Car comes with decals and tires included.
All four DLC cars will be available for digital purchase worldwide on July 18 for USD $1.99 per car (or regional equivalent).
