It’s been a while coming, but Xbox One owners will finally get their hands on Rocket League in February 2016.
The game will cost the same as the PS4 and PC versions, but will come with the Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle Cars and Chaos Run DLC packs for no additional cost. Unfortunately the Back to the Future DeLorean isn’t included, but will be available as Day One DLC.
This is on top of two exclusive cars – The Halo Hogsticker and the Gears of War Armadillo – and a bunch of console specific customisation items. Psyonix really do know how to cater to console user bases.
If you’re unaware of what Rocket League can bring to your lives, check out this handy feature list:
- Exclusive Battle-Cars: 16 Cars + 2 Xbox One Exclusives (the Halo “HogSticker,” an alternate version of the Warthog, and the Gears of War “Armadillo”)
- Garage Customization items: More than 400 different pieces, including Paint Types, Wheels, Rocket Trails, Antennas, and Toppers
- Maps: DFH Stadium, Beckwith Park, Mannfield, Urban Station, Utopia Coliseum, Wasteland (with multiple variants of most of those maps)
- Multiplayer: 4-Player Splitscreen, 8-Player Online. Ranked and Unranked Play, Special Mutator-Themed playlist(s), Private Match support (with named rooms and optional passwords)
- Game Modes: Exhibition 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, Unfair Mode (1v2, 1v3, 1v4), Offline Season Mode
- More Features: Replay Viewer, Customizable controls, “Mutator” game-variant options (Ball Type, Ball Speed, Boost Strength, Max Score, Match Length, etc., etc.)

Looks fun, right? You lucky, lucky people.
