'Rocket League' reaches your Xbox One on February 17th

PC and PS4 owners have been playing Rocket League's unique take on sports gaming since last July, leaving Xbox One owners on the virtual sidelines. Don't worry, though -- you won't have to twiddle your thumbs for much longer if you prefer Microsoft's console. Psyonix has revealed that the Xbox One version of Rocket League will arrive on February 17th for a fairly reasonable $20. You'll get three past downloadable content packs for free in exchange for the wait, and there will be two Xbox-exclusive vehicles, including the Gears of War-based Armadillo and a variant on Halo's Warthog.

If you're not familiar, Rocket League is effectively soccer (aka football) in souped-up, rocket-powered vehicles. The allure is that it somehow manages to recreate the spirit of the real, on-foot sport while speeding things up -- there's nothing quite like a well-coordinated play or flipping your car to score in mid-air. The title requires a ton of skill to play well, but it's accessible and fiercely competitive.
