Rocket League is an extremely addictive soccer game that has placed the players in vehicles, rather than playing on foot. The best way to describe the game is taking the beloved vehicular combat from Twisted Metal and tossing in a soccer ball and goal nets and mashing it all together on a field. Plus, Sweet Tooth’s ice cream truck is available to utilize on the field- can’t beat that. For those who are anything like our family and can’t get enough of the action, Rocket League will be seeing some extra content this August.
Yesterday, the official Twitter feed for Rocket League announced that the game has seen more than five million downloads since it launched on July 7th. NeoGaf also pointed out that SteamSpy lists it at 510k on Steam. They further detailed that this left 4.5 million downloads on PlayStation 4.
To celebrate the game’s immediate success, the team at Psyonix has announced, through PlayStation Blog this morning, that they will be releasing the Supersonic Fury downloadable content pack in August. Supersonic Fury will include two brand new Battle-Cars. One is described as an “over-the-top American muscle car” known as Dominus, and the second is the “souped-up Japanese street racer” known as Takumi. Of course we will see extras in the Garage customization for both vehicles. They revealed that both will have six different Decals, which will be a total of 12, that are only available for play in the downloadable content pack.
Not only will we get the two new cars, but we will also be getting, “two all-new Rocket Boosts” (“Nitrous” and “Burnout”), two new Wheel sets (the soccer ball-themed “Cristiano” and the very-cool “Spinner” set), five all-new Paint Types (“Brushed Metal,” “Carbon Fiber,” “Metallic Pearl,” “Pearlescent,” and “Wood”), and a handful of new Trophies,” as detailed on the announcement. The content will only run $3.99. We do not have an exact date of its release in August, however we know that it will be available early in the month. So, it would be safe to assume that we can get our hands on it within about two weeks.
Along with the downloadable content, they announced a free game update that will be made available. The update will include some new content as well. The first new map, Utopia Coliseum, will be available in the update, as well as more than 70 new country flags. The most exciting part of the reveal is the inclusion of a “Spectator Mode”. We will finally be able to watch live games, as they play out, from any angle in the arena. This is said to be quite similar to the way we watch our replays.
