Rocket League Neo Tokyo Map Trailer and Info
Another Rocket League update is on the way on 20 June, which will add a map called Neo Tokyo (based on a previous experimental one called Underpass) and an expanded item drop system.
Neo Tokyo is a neon-heavy, cyberpunk-themed stadium, which you can see taking shape in the trailer (below). In terms of how items will change, Psyonix says the game will be getting more than 20 ‘rare’ and ‘very rare’ items. Players will also be able to use a trade-in system to swap multiple abundant items for one of the rarer ones. Rocket League will get getting ‘painted’ items (colour variations on things like wheels) and ‘certified’ items (which track certain in-game stats and improve in prestige as those stats are raised) as well.
Post-game celebrations are going to be in there too, giving the winning team a chance to hop and boost about the place in delight.
A pair of additional Neo Tokyo-themed cars (Esper and Masamune) are due on 18 July at $2.00 USD apiece; but these are also said to be a “timed exclusive” in the game’s Collector’s Edition. That retail Collector’s Edition bundles up previously released DLC into one package, and is due in Europe on 24 June, and in the US on 5 July.
Check out the Trailer:
“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…
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.”
