Rocket League News Post

Rocket League is available now on PC (Steam) and PlayStation 4 for $19.99 or free for PlayStation Plus subscribers. The PlayStation 4 version weighs in at 1.4GB, with a larger 1.6GB release day patch to go along with it. PlayStation 4 users will also have exclusive access to Twisted Metal's own Sweet Tooth, as a playable vehicle. Check out the trailer here.

For those unaware of Rocket League, we played it at E3 and loved it. In short, it's a multiplayer-focused game where you play soccer with cars.

Here is something new from the PlayStation.Blog:

Competitive players have been begging us for this feature since our beta, and now, we’re happy to give it to you! Speaking of which, the first several weeks of Ranked play is officially known as “Pre-Season,” which will allow players to test themselves while learning how our system works. “Season 1″ will formally kick off sometime in August.

But that’s not all. We have BIG plans for Rocket League and our players, which is why you can expect to see plenty more from us over the next several weeks, months, and hopefully, even years. We are already putting the finishing touches on our first paid add-on pack, “Supersonic Fury,” which will add two new cars and several more surprises later this month. Even better: our first DLC map, inspired by the classic Battle-Cars arena, “Utopia,” is almost done as well and will be available in July. And, like all of our future maps, it will be 100% free. But we’ll have more on that soon.

We have posted some more information about the game below.

A futuristic Sports-Action game, Rocket League, equips players with booster-rigged vehicles that can be crashed into balls for incredible goals or epic saves across multiple, highly-detailed arenas. Using an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions, Rocket League relies on mass and momentum to give players a complete sense of intuitive control in this unbelievable, high-octane re-imagining of association football.

  • All-new Season Mode that allows players to enjoy a full single-player experience
  • Extensive Battle-Car customizations with more than 10 billion possible combinations
  • Unlockable items and vehicles, stat tracking, leaderboards, and more
  • Addictive 8-player online action with a variety of different team sizes and configurations
  • Amazing 2-, 3-, and 4-player splitscreen mode that can be played locally or taken online against other splitscreen players
  • Broadcast-quality replays that allow you to fast forward, rewind, or view the action from anywhere in the arena
  • Competitive cross-platform gameplay with PlayStation®4 users
  • Remote Play for PlayStation 4 users
  • 1080p HD Video Output

Tried to play online, but got a message that no servers were online. So I played an exhibition game and a season game. I was having trouble making contact with the ball, I seemed to zoom right past it, while the AI players were right where they should be to hit it. It's fun, should be even better once online play is up and running.

The servers are down since launch. The devs are trying to fix the problem but the game sold thousands of copies and they're now having trouble keeping the servers alive.

If you have PS+ and haven't downloaded this game yet, you need to do it now. Tons of arcade sports fun. Haven't stopped playing it for the last two days.

This is one of the best games I can never get to play. The Rocket League servers are down for the 100th time. When I was able to play, I can definitely say that it was fun and very addicting.
