Screenshot from Rocket League's Neo-Toyko DLC

Rocket League's long-awaited June patch is now finally available, and it seems to be pretty damn good. There's a couple of new DLC cars and (free) maps to toy around with, ranked players have received their fancy rewards, the loot update has brought in a bunch of new items, and there are even a couple of bug fixes to help everything run smoothly.

My personal favorite addition is the Quick Chat customization option that gives you the ability to take your passive-aggressive game to a whole new level. Why settle for "Nice Shot! Nice Shot! Nice Shot!" when you can use new phrases such as "Savage!" or "Calculated!" to truly take the throne as the most annoying person in the universe.

That aside, Season 2 has finally come to an end, which means that the shiny cosmetic prizes are now here! Everyone who managed to reach the rank of Prospect I and above has been granted a fancy new rocket trail to show off their final rank. As you can probably guess, this also means that Season 3 has begun, and with it everyone's competitive rating has been reset in order to allow for a fresh start. Best of all, you can no longer create an infinite amount of Steam accounts and use family sharing in order to constantly play against weaker opponents.

The much anticipated loot update has also arrived, though information on it is surprisingly scarce. I guess Psyonix wants us to discover these things for ourselves. The new "Rare" and "Very Rare" item drops can now be found after matches and will contain Neo Tokyo-themed drops, decals, and boosts trails. What exactly they look like, I can't tell you, but I'm sure someone will screenshot them soon enough.

If you're interested in all of the details on Patch 1.19 I'd suggest you head over to the official patch notes, you'll find everything you need right there.
