Bundled with the Xbox One release will be the Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, Chaos Run and Back to the Future Car content packs. The four content packs contain six extra Battle-Cars, over 60 customization items and the time-traveling DeLorean from the movie Back to the Future.
The Xbox One release will laos feature the new and exclusive “HogSticker” Warthog from the Halo series and “Armadillo” armored personnel carrier of Gears of War fame.
“We love those games, and wanted to give Xbox users something special for patiently waiting for Rocket League to come to their system,” Psyonix Vice President Jeremy Dunham said in a prepared statement. “We also have a rather strong tie to Gears of War in particular, as the team here at Psyonix developed the ‘Burnt Rubber’ stage for the original Xbox 360 version of Gears of War all those years ago. It was great to be able to go back to our roots and pay homage to one of the games that got us started. As for Halo, we’re just big, big fans – and we’d be crazy to NOT want to do a version of the Warthog for our game. And that’s how the HogSticker was born. It’s called the HogSticker, by the way, because it’s a modified Warthog with Needlers strapped to the back, as its primary propulsion devices.”
Psynoix is said to be planning to “aggressively” support the Xbox One release with free downloadable arenas and additional DLC.
Rumors swirled earlier this week that Rocket League was on its way to Xbox One when a listing for the port showed up on Taiwan’s Game Software Rating Regulations website. The game originally released to widespread acclaim and commercial success on PlayStation 4 and PC in July.
