Psyonix, the studio behind the smash hit Rocket League, has just announced the newest arena to be introduced to their hyper competitive car soccer game.
AquaDome is an underwater arena that draws obvious influences from Irrational Games’ 2007 classic BioShock. AquaDome is furnished with the same retro-futuristic Art Deco trappings that typified settings in BioShock, to give this arena a very eerie aesthetic.
AquaDome is also accented by eye-popping coral reefs and aquatic wildlife like sharks and jellyfish, which should help to immerse players in this oceanic setting.
This arena brings with it two new cars, the Triton and the Proteus. Both cars are styled after underwater exploration vehicles.
New music from Drunk Girl will accompany the AquaDome arena as well. Rocket League has always had a phenomenal soundtrack, and they are continually adding to this eclectic EDM mix as they bring out new downloadable content.
The AquaDome arena will be free when it’s released this October, but the Triton and Proteus cars will need to be purchased. Most Rocket League DLC cars are $2.
Rocket League is a title that is known for unique and immersive arenas. Past arena additions have included a Roman coliseum, a Mad Max style thunderdome, an imagining of futuristic Tokyo, and a basketball court.
For those uninitiated, Rocket League is a game that lets you play soccer with cars. The premise is as entertaining and ridiculous as it sounds, with airborne corkscrews and flips leading to highlight reel goals, and slide tackles leading to fiery crashes. For anyone who is a sports fan or a car fanatic, Rocket League is a must own.
