Până ce va începe acea campanie de Kickstarter pentru Grip, am fost înștiințat că Rocket League a fost lansat. Mergând pe o idee similară cu cea a jocului de fotbal cu un pietroi imens din RollCage Stage 2, Rocket League îți permite să pilotezi o mașină ce poate fi personalizată în detaliu cu tot felul de chițibușuri și arme în lupte sportive pentru supremație. Nu sunt trasee, ci un teren de fotbal cu o minge extrem de mare, sau cu mașini extrem de mici, perspectiva este importantă.
Rocket League oferă atât singleplayer, la care poți lupta împotriva AI-ului, dar este predominant concentrat pe multiplayer, cu meciuri în care pot încăpea până la 8 jucători, fie local, fie prin internet. În ciuda faptului că este un joc provenit de pe console, are servere dedicate și chiar poți participa la sesiuni comune între PC și PS4. Jocul este acum disponibil pe Steam.
SAN DIEGO, CA – July 7, 2015 – Global independent developer and publisher, Psyonix, announced today that Rocket League – one of the few PlayStation games in history to offer PS4™/ PC cross-platform play – is now available digitally on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system via the PlayStation®Network, and on PC via Steam. With a PS4™-exclusive cameo from Sweet Tooth, the iconic ice cream truck of Twisted Metal® fame, Rocket League brings gamers a high-powered hybrid of arcade-style soccer and vehicular mayhem. Offering easy-to-understand controls and deep, fluid physics-driven competition for 1-8 players, Rocket League boasts more than 10 billion possible customizations, giving players the opportunity to distinguish their Battle-Cars in either local or online play, while showing them off in a broadcast-quality replay viewer that perfectly complements the video-editing capabilities of SHAREfactory™.
The multiplayer-focused successor to 2008’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions, relying on mass and momentum to give players a complete sense of intuitive control in an unbelievable, high-octane re-imaging of association football. Players can breeze through the tutorial and play solo in the all-new Season Mode or vie against the AI in multiple team formations and difficulty settings. Up to four people can compete in two-to-four-player splitscreen action as well, with up to eight total players battling it out online (in Ranked, Unranked, or Private Matches) on dedicated servers located all over the world.
We’re thrilled to release Rocket League today,” said Dave Hagewood, President, Psyonix. „Gamers all over the planet have told us overwhelmingly that they loved Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, and that they wanted even more. Rocket League delivers on that request and we sincerely thank our community for the opportunity to provide them with what has been, for us, a dream project. Without their continued support, our game wouldn’t be what it is today.”
