Rocket League has been known as one of PlayStation’s digital masterpieces. Despite it not having any kind of narrative (unless you count hitting a ball with a radio-controlled car and try to score a goal as a “story”), it was able to garner a lot of fans. Fans of which spend hours and hours of gameplay competing with other people within the gaming community. Psyonix, the developer of the game, has recently announced that they are now going to release a physical copy of the title and it will be sold at retailers. The release date for the boxed edition will be on July of this year.
Rocket League Will Now Have a Boxed Edition and it Will Hit Stores This Coming July
Rocket League is not the first digital game that attained the opportunity to have a physical copy because of the number of fans playing it. The same thing happened with Journey. For both of these games, loyal fans would spend the extra amount of money just to own a physical copy of the game. If you’re already taking part of the hugely enthusiastic fanbase, then why not own a boxed edition for yourself when it hits stores this July?
With Rocket League (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS), it was no different to what had happened to Journey. The craze that happened was akin to a wildfire hitting a forest. It swept the console universe like mad and the competition between the teams of players was exhilarating that many were not able to stop playing it. It’s one of those games wherein you’ll start playing at 8 in the evening only to be shocked that you’ve been playing for six straight hours into the wee hours of the morning.
The title is now so popular that it is even being considered for esports. There is a Rocket League Champsionship Series for those who think that they have the right level of skill to compete with others for a prize. Since the game is so popular, you can probably find a local group that pits players against each other to test their mettles in trying to score while using an RC automobile.
Many thought that Rocket League was going to be a “one trick pony” or a “one hit wonder,” and as soon as it gained popularity, the fame would quickly die down. Instead, it has already been quite a good long while since the game was released and the fanbase continues to grow.
