The latest update for Rocket League, 1.34, will see Neo Tokyo make a return due to its popularity, Psyonix has announced.
It is has been redesigned as a standard arena, though it keeps its futuristic look.
“We left the scenery untouched to maintain that futuristic metropolis look, while removing the parallel ramps on either side of the goals,” Psyonix said.
Meanwhile, the original Neo Tokyo will be sticking around but under the name Tokyo Underpass. At the moment it is only available in offline and private matches, though that may change in the future. It will also take the place of the existing Underpass map.
The next battle-car has also been announced; Mantis is fully customisable and brings with it six new decals.
“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 added. “We’re also including six new Decals with Mantis: Arrowhead, Battleworn, Kaze, Maxx, Roasted, and Uproar.”
The update speeds onto consoles on Wednesday 10th May at 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT, and Thursday 11th May at 12am CEDT / 9am AEST.
But patch notes are yet to be published; we will share them with you as soon as they’re live.
