The next new map to be implemented in Rocket League features 8 walls arranged in the shape of an octagon. This will make for very different bounces from the standard maps. The map will be accessible in private matches or from the Rocket Labs playlist online.

The most popular maps will eventually be given visual makeovers and inserted into all other playlists, including competitive. To date, just one of those Rocket Labs maps has made the leap, with Underpass being re-envisioned as Neo Tokyo.

In addition to Octagon, a pair of new variants will be added to two maps. Urban Central will have a Dawn look available, and DFH Stadium a Stormy backdrop. These variants are just visual changes to the environment and do not affect gameplay.
