Rocket League Makes A Beeline For Xbox One Next Week


Developer Psyonix is finally on the verge of bringing Rocket League to Xbox One, with the port now on course to hit Microsoft’s console on February 17.

Confirmed during December’s The Game Awards ceremony, the studio has announced plans to include all three of the racer’s DLC packs, adding a total of six cars and more than 50 customization options to the Xbox One port. Beyond that, there’s also exclusive vehicles themed after notable Microsoft franchises like Halo (Warthog) and Gears of War (Armadillo), while Insomniac’s genre oddball Sunset Overdrive is also included in the soon-to-be-released version in the form of special items.

Since its launch in July of last year, Rocket League has cemented its place as one of the more prominent titles in the multiplayer space. With a healthy eSports community already in place, Psyonix claims that the game’s user base is simmering north of 11 million players, which is quite the feat given that game’s humble beginnings.

It is, essentially, the spiritual successor to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, with players duking it out in a cavernous arena for bragging rights. Blending soccer and racing together rather effortlessly, Rocket League is a crisp and wonderfully addicting experience, and Xbox One owners will be able to join in on the fun come next week.

Rocket League makes a beeline for Xbox One on Wednesday, February 17. It’ll be available for $20.
