Rocket League Xbox One release announced
- Video Games
The PlayStation 4 and PC favorite Rocket League is finding its way to the Xbox One early next year, bringing Xbox players all the chaotic fun of soccer played with cars.
Psyonix revealed during The Game Awards that Rocket League will arrive on the Xbox One in February 2016 for $19.99. Players will pick up the original game, along with three extra content packs already released for PS4 and PC players at no additional cost. Not included is the Back to the Future DeLorean skin, but transforming your playable car into Doc Brown’s iconic ride will be a purchasable option. The game will also include Xbox-exclusive skins based on Halo and Gears of War.
Rocket League lets players engage in fast-paced matches of soccer with 2-8 players, but rather than controlling actual characters, players are handling RC battle cars. The game keeps “easy to pick up, difficult to master” at the heart of its gameplay, making for one of the most purely fun releases of the year, which also took home both the Best Independent Game and Best Sports/Racing Game at The Game Awards.
