Unless you’ve been living on Mars, hiding under the largest rock or spending time submerged under the waves of the deepest of our oceans, you would know that Rocket League is a bit of a ‘thing’. A hugely successful, highly addictive, majorly entertaining ‘thing’. Well, there’s good news, because if you’re one to shy away from the digital downloads, and prefer a physical disk, then Rocket League will soon be catering for you too.
Coming to a store near you in time for this Christmas, the updated retail version of Rocket League has come about thanks to a worldwide distribution agreement between Psyonix and Warner Bros.
With the game available digitally on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, the new retail version of Rocket League includes more than 100 billion possible customisation combinations, a fully-featured offline season mode, multiple game types, casual and competitive online matches, and special “Mutators” that let you change the rules entirely. Full details of the ‘updated’ bit of this version will be confirmed in the week ahead, but basically, we’d be hugely surprised if it didn’t bring everything that the digital version brings, but on a disk.
“Rocket League has such wide appeal across all audiences, it’s no wonder the game is such a huge success,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales, Americas, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. “We’re very excited to be working with Psyonix to bring the game to retailers across the globe.”
“Warner Bros. has already proven to be a great partner,” said Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Publishing at Psyonix. “We first collaborated on Batman v Superman DLC for Rocket League in early 2016 and we have continued to be impressed with the team’s knowledge, professionalism, reach and enthusiasm for video games. They are the ideal partner to help us push Rocket League to another level at retail.”
We will of course bring you confirmed details and a release date as and when we can – and if you want some Rocket League items…
