Rocket League’s new cosmetics are an 80s neon dream brought to life

rocket league velocity crates

Rocket League will be getting an 80s-themed neon explosion with the addition of Velocity Crates next week, bringing some particularly wild new cosmetics to your supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-cars. And dragons.

Check out all our favourite multiplayer games on PC.

Velocity Crates make their debut December 4, and the additions are headlined by the new Imperator DT5, with neon wheels and a flashy pink paintjob perfect for reliving your favorite oversaturated sci-fi dreams. There are also six new decals and engine audio to use across your garage.

In addition to that, you can also get hold of some new wheels and a very fancy goal explosion featuring a dragon – a neon dragon, naturally – bursting forth.

Microtransactions hit Rocket League last year with a crate and key system similar to the one used in many free-to-play games. Yeah, loot boxes – but Rocket League does keep them limited to cosmetics. And in fairness, that Imperator does look really cool.
