Rocket League Neo Tokyo

With everything from new modes that incorporate other sports like basketball and hockey to frequently released additional maps and cosmetic DLC, Rocket League’s post-release support has been unprecedented for a sports game. On June 20 yet another major free update is scheduled to release for the game. 

Neo Tokyo Arena

Neon lights, towering skyscrapers, and retro-futuristic style comes to Rocket League on June 20 with our largest update in the game’s history, “New Tokyo.”

The cyberpunk-inspired stadium was originally part of our “Rocket Labs” Playlist as “Underpass,” now made even better with streamlined gameplay and highly-detailed environments!
