Rocket League's New Experimental Map Adds Walls and Lanes
New Rocket League map expected to arrive in June.
Rocket League developer Psyonix has revealed a new map it will be introducing to the Rocket Labs playlist. The map, called "Pillars." will arrive in June and continues the virtual reality theme.
"The visual aesthetic for Pillars will continue its tipped hat towards virtual reality," the studio said. "Only this time, with a gameplay emphasis on using multiple walls to your advantage."
These two walls are the titular Pillars and effectively split the map into three lanes. Both goals will remain in the centre lane, however.
"Banking shots off the tall columns in the middle of the arena makes for some incredible moments and driving up the walls and flying down on the competition feels just right," Psyonix added.
Pillars will be available in the Rocket Labs playlist for online and offline exhibition play. Rocket Labs made its debut in February, and was intended to give players a casual competitive environment and also allow "players to play prototype arena layouts."
On May 24, Rocket League was updated to support cross-play between Xbox One and PC. This was "a historic moment in multiplayer gaming," according to Psyonix, because Rocket League became the first Xbox One game to allow cross-play with PC.
Also in June, an update will add 27 new quick-chat phrases. Players will be able to customize what four statements they have access to after pressing any direction on the D-pad
