Rocket League Neo Tokyo This Month

A post on the Rocket League website announces plans to release Neo Tokyo for Rocket League for free on June 20th, saying this will be the "largest update in the game’s history." This will include a new map as well as new features and other improvements for this marriage of motorsports with association football/soccer. They have set up a dedicated Neo Tokyo page with details along with this trailer showing the new map, which they explain is a "re-imagined version of the celebrated multi-tiered stadium, 'Underpass,' with streamlined gameplay." Here's more on the plan as well as more content releases to follow:
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 ranks
  • An expanded Item drop system that adds…
  • 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
  • Eight new Trophies and Achievements on all three platforms [Blog Coming June 13]
  • A new, in-game “Showroom” that allows players to view and purchase all previously-released and future premium DLC [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).
