Rocket League’s Chaos Run DLC is Set in Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland

By | 11 months ago 

Psyonix reveals the Chaos Run DLC expansion for Rocket League, which adds the Wasteland arena and two new cars, as well as a suite of new customization options.

Fans of Psyonix’s ever-popular Rocket League probably assumed that the free Fallout 4-themed DLC that recently released for the game would be as close to a post-apocalyptic wasteland as the game would get. On the contrary, Psyonix has announced the new Chaos Run DLC for release next month, which adds even more post-apocalyptic flavor to Rocket League.

The biggest addition coming with the DLC is a stadium called Wasteland, which will be free to download, even for those that choose not to purchase the Chaos Run pack. A remake of the map of the same name from Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars (Rocket League‘s unfortunately titled predecessor), Wasteland will be one of the first stadiums for the game that will actually change the way people play Rocket League. As explained by Jeremy Dunham of Psyonix:

“It’s physically-wider than all other stadiums and has a completely-dissimilar Boost placement. The biggest difference, though, is that the ground itself is sloped around the entire perimeter of the arena, making for matches that feel much different than typical Rocket League contests.”

Those that want the entire Chaos Run experience will have to shell out $4, but it may be worth it to dedicated Rocket League players. For $4, fans can look forward to a variety of new customization options for their vehicles, as well as two new battle cars called Ripper and Grog, both of which would not look out of place in a Mad Max film.

Psyonix has done a great job at keeping the Rocket League community engaged and enthusiastic about the game thanks to DLC packs like Chaos Run. It definitely helps that the game has been supported with a combination of free updates along with enticing paid DLC, such as this and the Back to the Future Delorean car, which has kept the game feeling fresh since launch.

Releasing the game as a free PlayStation Plus title in its debut has proven to be a smart move, as that is really what has helped propel it to mainstream gaming recognition. Rocket League has since enjoyed over 5 million downloads, and with Psyonix continuing to support the game post-launch with meaty content packs like Chaos RunRocket League‘s popularity shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
