Psyonix have announced that a new arena is coming to Rocket League in the form of Neo Tokyo – a cyberpunk inspired stadium, which was originally part of the Rocket Labs Playlist as Underpass. It has now been reworked and streamlined into Neo Tokyo.
Neo Tokyo is coming to Rocket League as part of an update on June 20, which will be the biggest update to the game yet. Also coming as part of the update:
- The beginning of Season 3 for competitive play. This will reset all skill ratings and reward Season 2 players with an exclusive Rocket Trail that will reflect their highest achieved ranks.
- And expanded item drop system that will add more than 20 rare and very rare item types, a trade system, new painted items and special certified items that track in-game stats and increase in prestige the higher those stats go.
- New quick chat customisation options.
- New post-game celebrations that will spotlight the winning team and allow them to jump, spin and boost their cars.
- An experimental new arena called Pillars that separates the field into three lanes via two massive walls in the centre of the stadium.
- Eight new trophies/achievements on all three platforms (which will be detailed in a blog post on June 13)
- A new showroom that will allow players to view and purchase all past and future premium DLC.
The release of the update will also see the launch of two Neo Tokyo inspired premium cars that will be available first to owners of the Rocket League Collector’s Edition, which is heading to retail on June 24 in Europe and July 5 in North America.
These cars will join two others as timed exclusives for the retail release. All four cars will be released separately for digital purchase worldwide on July 18, costing $1.99 each (or your regional equivalent).
