Rocket League rolls out NeoTokyo Update today with the Shacknews Community Flag

Do it for Shacknews!


I interviewed the development team from Rocket League at GDC 2016. They had just won the award for best design at the Game Developers' Choice Awards. At the end of the interview I asked if it was possible to get our Shacknews community flag in the game. Sure enough, we made it into today's update and are happy to confirm that Psyonix Studios knows how to do it for Shacknews.

Please take a look at the interview:

Highlights of the the update include:

Added four new premium Battle-Cars…
(DLC) Neo Tokyo-inspired vehicles “Esper” and “Masamune”, and Classic Cars “Aftershock” and “Marauder” will be available July 18th.
(DLC) Six Decals for each new vehicle
