Aside from laying the foundation for future updates and content, players will be getting access to a brand new arena, new decals, and a number of customization options.

Content details

The new update brings with it a brand new standard arena called “Champion’s Field.” The new open-air stage looks like it’s a little bit more square than rectangle shaped, but it is still quite an epic and huge map. A number of brand new stylish animated decals and accessories are also featured, including the long-awaited “Rick and Morty” themed add-ons.

Fans of both the game and the hit adult cartoon television show should be quite delighted finally be able to combine two of their favorite things into one experience. The incorporation of famous third party properties into the game has been a great strategy for the developers in attracting fans to spend their money on cosmetic items through the game’s built-in microtransaction feature.
