Game – Rocket League
Release Date – February 17th, 2016
Platform – Xbox One
Developer/Publisher – Psyonix
Rocket League is a physics-based vehicle football game in which players in both teams try to push the ball into the opponent’s goal. Rocket League includes both Single-Player and Multiplayer which can be played locally(1-4 players) and online, including cross-platform between PS4 and PC.
Rocket League’s gameplay for the first 3-5 hours can be really hard to learn. You’re going to be annoyed for not having hit the ball to prevent a goal, or score a goal. Players can pick up a speed boost by passing their cars over marked spaces on the field, enabling them to quickly cross the field, use the added momentum to hit the ball, or ram into another player’s car to destroy it. You may also utilize boost when in the air to propel forward in flight, allowing to hit the ball in the air.
Players are awarded points for certain actions in the game, such as scoring a goal, assisting in a goal, knocking the ball away from their goal, or winning the game. These points contribute towards a meta-game experience system, unlocking decorative rewards for players to personalize their cars and affecting how they are matched against other players.

When Rocket League was announced for Xbox One, all players would get exclusive-console content such as The “Armadillo”from Gears Of War, “Hogsticker” from Halo and several garage items like 343 Guilty Spark as Antenna.
The original soundtrack for this title contains original compositions by Psyonix as well as electronic music from Hollywood Principle. If you’re a type of person who enjoys “night club” music, then the soundtrack is suitable for you.
