Rocket League has good news as Xbox and PlayStation roll out new consoles

Start your engines and enjoy that 4K

Those who demand instant gratification are receiving some great gaming news today. As anyone with an Internet connection knows, advancements in game-console technology have made for a bright spot in what’s otherwise been a less-than-stellar year. On that front, Xbox Series X hit the shelves today.

For those whose Christmas bonus is projected to be a little less opulent than last year’s, Microsoft has also released a lower-budget Xbox Series S. The gaming goldrush will continue November 12 when Sony’s PlayStation 5 makes its official debut.

No matter where your allegiance lies—Sony or Microsoft— game developer Psyonix has announced that Rocket League is ready to roll on all platforms. And by that, we’re talking no waiting to play. Remove that new console from the Amazon box, and then have at ’er.

In a press release, the folks responsible for bringing the world Rocket League said this:

“We’re pleased to announce that you’ll be able to play and enjoy Rocket League on all the new consoles at launch, and your Rocket Pass progress and inventory will transfer to the new consoles with your Epic Games Account. Players will enjoy significantly faster load times and improved splitscreen performance on all new consoles. Plus, there are some special enhancements coming to the game later this year depending on where you’re playing.”

Highlights on Xbox Series X will include Rocket League running at 4K resolution right away. It will also include a new tab that will enable you to choose between quality or performance.

The game will also feature immediate 4K resolution on PlayStation 5.

Rocket League still free!

Rocket League is of course completely free to play. For those who plan to be in the gaming stone age until they win the lottery, Rocket League will still be available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and good ol’ PC.

No matter what you’re playing on, ladies and gentlemen start your engines, and then put that ball in the net.
