‘Rocket League’ arrives on Xbox One February 17th
So you’ve waited to customize your car and run wild in a stadium full of other drivers playing what essential amounts to soccer with vehicles? Your wait is almost over. Rocket League, the independently developed video game that Sony’s horded on PlayStation 4 since last year, is coming to Microsoft’s Xbox One entertainment console on February 17th.
Microsoft confirmed Rocket League for Xbox One was coming last year during The Game Awards, but it wasn’t until this week in a post on Xbox Wire that we learned exactly when. Rocket League was one of the most popular games to arrive last year on any platform, with sales measured in over a million downloads.
Rocket League for Xbox One isn’t available for pre-order just yet. It’ll cost $19.99, a bit higher than most independently developed games, but that’s ok. Every one of the three content packs released to the PC and PS4 versions of the game are included in that base price. What’s more, Microsoft is throwing in some exclusive items at no additional charge. There’s the Armadillo vehicle from Gears of War and the Warthog from Halo. Even a few Sunset Overdrive items come included.
