Rocket League players will soon have another batch of players to go up against later this year. Psyonix has announced that the hit title is set to arrive on Switch later this year. More exciting is that it will be able to hook up with other gaming platforms for cross-network multiplayer.
Initially, it was not detailed which gaming platforms the Switch version can connect with. But according to a blog post at the game’s official website, it will be Xbox One and PC. It appears Sony is once again playing party-pooper by choosing not to join the party. You can check out the Rocket League on Switch announcement below.
Rocket League on Switch features the same chaotic gameplay seen in all existing versions. The gameplay is similar to a soccer match. But instead of controlling soccer players, you control rocket-powered cars. Basically, if FIFA and Destruction Derby had a baby, it would be Rocket League.
The Switch version includes all the content, features, and updates currently out. Additionally, it will have exclusive Battle-Cars and Customization Items. The announcement video clearly shows a Battle-Car sporting a Mario hat. The setup is similar to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Switch, which features all three official add-ons plus Switch exclusive goodies.
Originally released in 2015 for PC and PS4, with the Xbox One version arriving in early 2016, Rocket League has been a massive hit. Critics and gamers alike praised its incredibly fun and addicting gameplay. It has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and boasts several gaming awards, including the Sports Game of the Year award at the 19th Annual DICE Awards in 2016.
Rocket League on Switch arrives this holiday 2017, with Psyonix promising to deliver more information about the port as the release date creeps closer.
