Today Psyonix announced that the next update for Rocket League is coming later this week on Wednesday, May 10. So, what’s new in this patch? For starters, the Neo Tokyo map is back, and they’ve redesigned it as a Standard Arena. Psyonix left the scenery untouched to maintain that futuristic metropolis look, while removing the parallel ramps on either side of the goals. Neo Tokyo will be returning to all playlists, including Competitive, and will be available in private matches too. For those who loved the original Neo Tokyo, the developers are keeping it as is under the name of Tokyo Underpass. This arena will only be available in offline and private matches for now.
Maps aren’t the only items in the next update. There’s a new car as well! Available only as a limited-drop inside the next Crate, Mantis is a car many of you have been asking about since the Batman v Superman add-on from 2016. Mantis is fully customizable and has an all-new look, but it uses the same low, flat hitbox, and turn radius as the Batmobile. Psyonix are also including 6 new Decals with Mantis: Arrowhead, Battleworn, Kaze, Maxx, Roasted and Uproar.
This week’s update also includes the framework for in-game items tied to Zag Toys Mini Pull-Back Racers! Once the blind-bag toys start hitting store shelves in June, Rare and Very Rare Pull-Back Racers will include unique codes redeemable for a set of in-game items in Rocket League. This update is quite expansive so be sure to check it out on Wednesday!
