Rocket League February Update Also Includes Rocket Labs, Letting You Test out Prototype Maps

February 3, 2016Written by Jason Dunning

Along with new items and rank changes, the Rocket League February update will also add Rocket Labs when it releases later this month.

Revealed by GameSpot, Rocket Labs lets you try out prototype arena layouts, each featuring a virtual reality-inspired look. Your feedback will then determine which ones get final artwork assets.

The first three maps in Rocket Labs are Utopia Retro, which is an homage to a circular map from Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars; Underpass, which has different levels of elevation; and Double Goal, which has two openings for each team’s goals. At first, these maps won’t be available in competitive playlists.

More maps will likely be added by Psyonix as they’re created, though timing titles are TBA.

Also in the February update, you’ll be able to report offensive players, Wastelend will be added to competitive playlists, and the Winter Stadium will be permanently added to exhibition and private matches.

As we learned last month, Rocket League has more than 10 million players across PlayStation 4 and PC. An Xbox One version is expected this month.
