Rocket League will receive a huge “Neo Tokyo” update on June 20

Psyonix has announced that Rocket League‘s “biggest update ever” will be available on June 20. The “Neo Tokyo” update will include a brand new arena inspired by the cyberpunk fiction that first gained prominence in the 1980s, new items, an item Trade-In system, and new Trophies/Achievements.

Here’s a full rundown of everything that’s featured in the “Neo Tokyo” update:

Rocket League’s “Neo Tokyo” Update

  • 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.

Psyonix also plans to continue the “Neo Tokyo” theme with “Esper” and “Masamune,” a downloadable pair of futuristic vehicles with an anime flair. Both cars will be available first in the retail-only Rocket League: Collector’s Edition, which will be released on July 5. Current Rocket League owners will be able to pick up both cars for $1.99 apiece beginning on July 18.
