New Psyonix release in 'Rocket League' of its own


April 05, 2016

    Developed and published by Psyonix, Rocket League is a game of soccer — but with rocket-powered vehicles. Yes, you read that correctly.
    The game supports single-player and multiplayer modes, both locally and online. Unique to the game is cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and Microsoft Windows versions, and the potential for other networks in the future.
    Players control rocket-powered cars to knock a huge ball in the opponent's goal. Players can speed-boost, jump, flip and even destroy other vehicles while they attempt to score the most points. Also, players are awarded points for certain in-game actions like scoring, assisting, saving and more. These points are used to accessorize the player's vehicle and also for match-making with other players.
    The game shows off a brilliant design coupled by a fun concept. The visuals and audio go a long way in selling and helping the atmosphere of a true soccer match. Each field has been delicately designed with a sold-out venue of fans who react to the actual match play in beautiful, colorful arenas. Mastering the ability to make and block shots is a joy that improves with more game time. I really could not find anything I disliked about the game.
    Although the idea of vehicles playing soccer sounds absurd, Psyonix has found a winning formula. Gameplay elements are engaging and keep players coming back with the meta-game options of customization to the vehicles. Easy to learn and challenging to master, Rocket League has found a niche in a time where shooters and open worlds have dominated the field.
