It’s official; Rocket League is coming to Playstation 4. The follow-up to the underground hit Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars will be going from its Playstation 3 exclusive to the PS4 as its currently only announced platform.
Developer Psyonix will showcase the arcade title at Playstation Experience, which is held this weekend on December 6 and 7 in Las Vegas. There will be tournaments, live multiplayer matches, prizes and so on.
Rocket League is a whacked out game that lets vehicles play a game of soccer in what’s basically a death arena. For the sequel, the team will improve on the physics and make gameplay “faster.”
There’s a Season Mode, where you’ll have to unlock certain items, but also arenas. There are over 100 customization options.
Rocket League will opt for dedicated gameplay servers. Moreover, there will be a replay feature that allows for custom captures, including alternate camera angles.
Naturally, Rocket League will return to its multiplayer shenanigans that pits up to 8 players against each other. Bump into the giant ball with your car or just ram your opponent; the choice is yours.
Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars climbed to PS3 fame back in 2008. It has since acquired a fan base of nearly 2 million downloads.
Developer Psyonix is working on Rocket League as well as another larger project. Previously, the company was already tasked with the developer of Nosgoth, a free-to-play game for publisher Square Enix.
There’s quite some star power in the company also credited to names like Gears of War, Bulletstorm and even Mass Effect 3. Hopefully, it translates to Rocket League as well.
