Developed by Psyonix, creators of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, this is the souped-up car football game you didn’t even know you were waiting for.
The story unfolds thusly. You are Chad “The Rocket” Brobrovsky, professional Battle-Car racer and all round top bloke. By a convoluted twist of fate, you are forced to participate in brutal car football matches in order to prevent the demolition of a kitten orphanage. Just kidding, there is no story! Rocket League is all about controlling a super fast RC style car equipped with boosters and acrobatic capabilities in order to score more ball-holes than the other team (I think they might actually be called “goals”, but I’m not a “sports person”). To elaborate, you control your car from a tight third person perspective, manoeuvring around a football pitch attempting to hit the ball which is almost laughably bigger than your car. To complicate matters further, there are boost pads littered around the pitch used to fill your nitro-meter, and your car can jump, double jump, flip in any direction, or with a little skill, fly briefly with the use of your booster. The pitch even has curved edges, allowing you to drive up the walls and onto the ceiling, opening the door for even more incredible and, lets be honest, unpredictable stunts."
