It's no secret that Rocket League has been a roaring success. Since its release last year on PS4 where it was available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, its winning formula of cars and football has made it one of the most addictive online multiplayer games currently available. And it's showing no signs of losing its momentum.
Following its belated release on the Xbox One digital store earlier this year, last week saw its debut in physical form with the Rocket League Collector's Edition almost exactly a year after its initial PS4 and PC release, bundling the main game with its extra DLC content released in the last year for the first time on disc. It's perhaps unsurprising, then, to find that Rocket League debuted at number six in the UK all formats chart in its first week of sale for the week ending June 25th.
It's an impressive feat for what started as an indie game and a testament to its lasting popularity, but it does beg the question: who hasn't already played Rocket League by now? Well, it's worth noting that Rocket League has been out a lot longer on PS4 which explains why more units were sold on Xbox One. Football is of course very topical right now too as we're in the midst of the Euro championship. Especially if you live in England.
If like me you haven't played Rocket League in a while, there's plenty of free new content waiting to reel you back in – there's the recent Hoops update which added basketball gameplay into the mix and the stylish Neo Tokyo map.
