Rocket League Out On PS4 in July, Includes Sweet Tooth & Cross-Platform Play
Following last month’s beta, developer Psyonix revealed today that their action-sports game Rocket League is releasing for the PlayStation 4 on July 7 in North America and Europe. It’ll cost $19.99 in the United States, and in “other regions it will be as close to that as possible.”
The sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League will feature Sweet Tooth as a special unlockable vehicle, exclusively on PS4, as you can see in the above trailer.
Also in the trailer, you’ll see Rocket League includes PS4/PC cross-play, “meaning that owners of both the console version and the PC version will be able to team up or go head-to-head in the same matches when the game launches early next month!”
Here’s the list of Rocket League features:
- New Season Mode – In the final version, players can enjoy an offline single-player or multiplayer experience with Season mode, bolstered by extensive vehicle customizations, unlockable items, multiple arenas, and more.
- Fully Upgraded Online, Local and Splitscreen Multiplayer Modes – Fans of the original will love the returning options for two- to four-player competition, from on-the-couch splitscreen competition to the robust online play.
- Team-Focused Gameplay – Rocket League’s team-oriented play compels gamers to learn short- and long-term tactics and strategies to stay in the game, challenge their friends, and stay atop the monthly leaderboards.
- Physics-Driven Vehicle Interactions – Built with rocket-equipped vehicles capable of aerial attacks, passes and shots, and physics-driven ball action, Rocket League is a wild, visceral sports-action experience.
- Content Overload – Rocket League builds upon its predecessor with a healthy array of completely new unlockable vehicles, arenas, more than 150 customization items, and other surprises.
- Dedicated Gameplay Servers – Super-smooth online gameplay guarantees an even better Rocket-Powered Battle-Car experience.
- Broadcast-Quality Replays – Gamers can play with, stylize, and create the ultimate replay of entire games with the new replay system. Fast forward, rewind, or view the action from anywhere in the arena!
Psyonix’s Jeremy Dunham adds, “We will continue to add more maps post-release and ALL new maps will ALWAYS be free.”
