Developer Psyonix is releasing another map for Rocket League this month, and it’s coming alongside the “largest update in the game’s history.” The map is called Neo Tokyo and it’s cyberpunk-themed, multileveled, and set in a futuristic Tokyo. The developer published a video showing off the map, which you can watch below. Both the map and the update will be available for free.

In addition to the map, the Neo Tokyo update also includes a number of tweaks, changes, and additions to Rocket League. It’s easy to see why Psyonix says it’s the biggest in history–there are a lot of new features coming. In addition to the map, the update adds:

  • A bunch of “rare” and “very rare” cosmetic items that are awarded for post-game drops;
  • A previously announced trade-in system for unwanted or duplicate cosmetic items;
  • “Painted” items that are variations on existing cosmetic items;
  • “Certified” items that track in-game stats and increase in prestige as those stats increase;
  • New chat options;
  • New post-game celebrations;
  • An experimental arena called “Pillars” that divides the normal Rocket League field into three lanes;
  • Eight new trophies and achievements;
  • An in-game showroom that allows players to view and buy previously released premium DLC.

Alongside the Neo Tokyo update, Psyonix is also launching two new cars as premium DLC. These cars, called Esper and Masamune, are cyberpunk Tokyo-themed and will cost $1.99 each.

NASCAR driver Jeb Burton plays the new expansion on the hardest difficulty to see if his skills translate to the game. Spoiler alert: They do. Sponsored by Xbox.

The map will launch on June 20, and the new cars will be available for purchase for everyone on July 18. If you own the Collection’s Edition of the game, you’ll be able to use the cars on June 24 in Europe and July 5 in North America. The other changes will be released later this month.
