Rocket League One of the best multiplayer games of last year is now on Xbox one. It is just as fun as always. With the Xbox One version launching earlier than expected, Psyonix has announced that Rocket League crossed 11 million downloads on the PlayStation 4 and PC. In December, download numbers were at 8 million. In January, they hit 10 million. With the Xbox One release, Rocket League is expected to become even more popular.
The Xbox One version launches with quite a bit of content. Along with the original game, you get three expansions – Supersonic Fury, Chaos Run and Revenge of the Battle-Cars – with a total of 16 cars altogether. There are also some exclusive vehicles, wheels, antennas and more based on Gears of War, Halo and Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One version. That’s not including Season 2 of ranked play which has gone live across all platforms.
Rocket League retails for $20 on Xbox One and is only 2.55 GB to download. Will you be picking it up? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and stay tuned for more information on future Rocket League updates.
The basic game is the same but there are also some exclusive customization items based on fellow Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive, including one that makes it look like your exhaust is spitting out gloppy orange Overcharge. You also get three free DLC packs, that add in extra cars and customization options, and which PlayStation owners previously had to pay for.
There’s a very old school feel about Rocket League, from the emphasis on split screen multiplayer to the inherent simplicity of the whole concept. That’s not a criticism or caveat though, instead it’s an acknowledgement that this is the sort of thing that gaming needs more of. You don’t need to like football, cars, or even video games to enjoy Rocket League; you just need to like having fun.
