A new Rocket League update was released by Psyonix. The patch notes for the version 1.21 update were posted on the game’s official website.
According to the patch, the latest update for Rocket League fixes various Neo Tokyo collision issues, which caused unusual bounces inside the Arena. Neo Tokyo, a cyber-themed punk game arena, was added to the physics-based soccer-meets-driving game last month as part of the biggest update made yet for Rocket League, Polygon reported.
Watch the Neo Tokyo trailer below, originally posted on Rocket League’s YouTube channel.
In addition to resolving troubles with Neo Tokyo, the problems experienced with Hearts Boost audio were also fixed. Another audio problem fixed by the latest game patch has something to do with the sound mix that caused some effects to be too loud or “bassy.” Furthermore, Rocket League update 1.21 also fixed a crash associated with viewing old replays in the basketball-themed arena called Dunk House.
Upon having the Rocket League update, Spectators should not have any problems seeing incorrect nameplates. Also, the post on the official site said that “painted items are now displaying as colored in matches.”
Meanwhile, last Thursday, July 7, marked the first year anniversary of Rocket League and game developer Psyonix expressed their gratitude to the community. A separate post on the game’s official site read as follows.
“Because of your passion and your support, our relatively-small follow-up to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars has exceeded our wildest dreams and become something enormous. You have made new friends, crossed platforms into new frontiers, and inspired us in ways you’ll never know (and in other ways you’ll know very soon). You’ve made incredible saves, scored amazing goals, and you’ve changed the conversation in the world of competitive esports forever.”
Psyonix promised that in Rocket League’s second year, game updates will include more contents such as New Arenas, Game Modes, Garage items and a new DLC. Furthermore, as a way of showing gratitude, the game developer plans to “experiment with more Rocket Labs and to increase our presence in the world of competitive gaming.”
As part of the celebration of the game’s first birthday, Psyonix also released the digital version of Rocket League: Official Game Soundtrack, Vol. 2 which is packed with all the music added to the game post-launch. The soundtrack is available on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and Google Play Music, with price tags ranging from $6 to $10 depending on the platform, Mike Ault noted in his post on Rocket League’s website. Songs can be purchased individually in some retailers, the post added. It is also available via Steam as Rocket League DLC.
A previous report by The Inquisitr noted the release of Rocket League: Collector’s Edition in U.S. retail stores earlier this week. The game is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. This edition brings in the three DLC packs, namely Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars and Chaos Run. Furthermore, Rocket League’s Collector’s Edition also includes an exclusive art print, a new Season Mode and four all-new vehicles, as posted on the game’s website.
Meanwhile, huge savings await those who are interested in purchasing the collector’s edition for PC. According to a recent update posted on Daily Dot, it is currently on sale on Amazon. Regularly priced at $29.99, the Microsoft Windows copy of the game’s special edition is available for only $20.
A Twitter update from the game’s official account reminded fans that Rocket League Championship Series Online Finals event is happening this weekend, July 9 to 10.
