Rocket League Coming to PS4, PlayStation Experience

Jeremy Dunham's Avatar Posted by on Dec 02, 2014 // Vice President of Marketing, Psyonix

It was 2008 when the team here at Psyonix first combined soccer with racing and released the original Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars on PS3. Now, after six years of dedicated community feedback and more than two million downloads, our long-awaited sequel, Rocket League, is headed to PS4 this spring!

Rocket League on PS4
For us, Rocket League is more than just a sequel — it’s also a chance to improve on the first Battle-Cars in nearly every possible way, including:

  • Improved physics, faster gameplay, and infinitely better visuals
  • An all-new Season Mode with unlockable items, multiple arenas, and more
  • The return of 2-, 3- and 4-player split-screen
  • More vehicles, new stadiums, and more than 100 customization items
  • Dedicated gameplay servers
  • A broadcast-quality replay feature that enables players to create their own custom replays of entire games from any camera angle they want
  • Even more surprises that we’ll reveal closer to release

But wait, there’s more! We’re also excited to announce that Rocket League will debut on PS4 at the PlayStation Experience this weekend in Las Vegas, December 6 and 7!

Drop by our location at Booth I13 and you’ll be able to enjoy four-player split-screen firsthand, while also earning a shot at winning one of the cool, show-exclusive Rocket League shirts highlighted below.

See you at the show!

Is this anything like Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars? Because me and my friends STILL play that and love it.

    Yeah, we learned a lot from the first game and that’s why Rocket League will have dedicated servers instead of the old P2P setup we had in the original.

    No weapons in Rocket League. You can, however, demolish other cars if you hit them hard enough.

Buying this day 1. My friends still play the original regularly. Such an amazing local multiplayer game. The icing on the cake would be a Vita release as well.

Suuuuupeeeer…. sooooooniiiiic…. Acrobatic Rocket-Powered BATTLE CARS!!!

    Yep, we have online multiplayer (up to 8 via 4v4), as well as 4-player splitscreen.

    In fact, you can have two PS4’s running splitscreen at the same time and play online against each other if you want. We have 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 modes as well.

Never played the first game, but I gotta say this looks like it would be really fun party game!

Are there plans to put a trial or demo version on the PSN Store?

+ Pojosamaneo on December 8th, 2014 at 11:41 am said:

Words cannot describe how exciting this is! I still play split screen SARPBC with friends on the PS3, and it’s fun every time! Some questions, if you would be so kind as to answer (if you can’t answer, consider them suggestions):

Will this have a custom soundtrack mode like the first?

Will this feature more “normal” stages as opposed to the crazy stages (castle, pirate ship, space stage with the bumps before the goals)? A good mix is fine, but I like my standard stages!

+ TheBlackBall on December 31st, 2014 at 8:26 am said:

I could not be more excited for the return of SARPBC – and the addition of dedicated severs! Just please tell me that there will still be support for custom soundtracks. It was part of what made the first game so great to play with friends.

I know Sony hasn’t yet given us the ability to store MP3s on our PS4 (at least the last time I checked), but that has to be something they will do in the future.

Looking forward to putting another 400+ hours into rocket league! Thank you Psyonix, and count on me for a day one buy!
