Breakout sports-action game comes to Xbox One at last.
Independent developer, Psyonix, has announced that sports-action hit, Rocket League, will be released as a digital download for Xbox One on February 17, 2016. The game will be published via Microsoft’s ID@Xbox self-publishing program.
In addition to being feature-matched with the PlayStation 4 and Steam editions of the game, Psyonix promises some Xbox One exclusives and bonuses; from new cars and antennas, to wheels and rocket trails.
Rocket League was the breakout hit of 2015, arriving last summer on the back of a well-received beta but with very little fanfare. The game’s combination of arcade-style football and vehicular shenanigans quickly built a following through positive word of mouth. It has since become one of the year’s best-selling games and now has over 11 million players.
Not bad for a game dismissed by many when it made its PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection debut last July.
Rocket League will be released on Xbox One on 17th February, prices $19.99 USD (or regional equivalent).
