Highly-anticipated and long-awaited, Rocket League will at last hit Xbox One next week

The most important date is February is upon us. It was announced today by developer Psyonix that Rocket League will finally race its way onto the Xbox One next Wednesday, February 17th for $19.99.

Rocket League took the gaming world by storm last year when it launched on PlayStation and Steam and received rave reviews from just about every outlet. In Rocket League you control a rocket-powered car that is used to hit a giant soccer ball into the goal. The game's premise is simple, but putting it all into action takes some practice and getting used to.

Psyonix has also included three of the four previously-released DLC packs into the Xbox One version of the game at no extra cost. As an added bonus, Xbox One players will get two exclusive cars based off of vehicles from Halo and the Gears of War franchises. Not only that, but the game will feature some garage items to customize your car with that are inspired by Sunset Overdrive.

The game features local multiplayer but focuses mainly on it's online atmosphere. You can either play in unranked/ranked matches ranging from 1v1 to 4v4 or play in special mutator game types such as the "Snow Day" hockey game type that is available right now.

Psyonix announced last week that Season 2 of Rocket League will launch soon and will bring some welcomed changes with it. The developers are now doing away with 'rank points' and instead have introduced a 12-division system in which players will be ranked in based on skill. Players will then be matched against opponents in the same division when playing in ranked matches.
