Rocket League is a sports game where you control a vehicle and have to use it to play soccer. You jump, boost and hit your way to victory in intense single-player or multiplayer matches. The title requires a lot of skill and teamwork to succeed.
Updated January 22, 2019: Psyonix is targeting cross-party support for February.
Today on the Inside Xbox show, Psyonix revealed that Rocket League was getting a cross-party solution between Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch over the summer. A few years ago, the Xbox One version was updated to support cross-play with PC. Recently, the game got cross-play with Nintendo Switch, but there was no solution to partying up outside of private matches. Luckily, that will change with the addition of the "Rocket ID" system.
Rocket League is just one of the games that supports cross-play with Nintendo Switch. Other popular cross-play titles include Fortnite and Minecraft. As expected, Sony still doesn't support cross-play with other consoles.
A few hours ago, Rocket League appeared under a number of advertisements promoting Xbox Game Pass. Microsoft or the developer didn't announce its addition to the service, but now it's available for free to subscribers. Numerous gamers are reporting that they can install the title though Xbox Game Pass and play it without any problems. The store listing now also states that it's free if you're a subscriber.
Xbox Game Pass memberships costs $9.99 each month so be sure to check it out if you want a Netflix-style subscription for games. Unlike competing products, the titles download to your system so there's no streaming involved.
