Rocket League is coming to Xbox One

Psyonix has confirmed that the immensely popular Rocket League is coming to Xbox One next year.

If you’ve been hearing all about the strange car-based football game known as Rocket League from your non-Xbox friends, then you’ll be pleased to hear that from February you’ll be able to get in on the action.

Rocket League is coming to Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing programme, and will offer all the same features, upgrades and other content available in the PS4 and Steam versions.

What’s more, the Xbox One version has some exclusive features that you’ll only get on Microsoft’s new console.
