A few months ago we reported that Pysonix, the team behind the critically acclaimed Rocket League would be looking into launching local servers for the game. Well, everything went silent after that, until today. The developer took to Twitter to announce that they will be turning on a few new servers around the world and one of those locations is in South Africa.

While we know very little in regards to who is hosting these servers and just how awesome they will be, it is good news as local servers for any game right now is just excellent. Along with the new servers going live, the game will also receive a major update today that will fix issues, and also add the ability to connect to these new servers.
