The Follow-up to the Popular Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars Takes Action-Sports to New Level

Psyonix, the respected independent developer responsible for Square Enix’s upcoming hit Nosgoth, unveiled its plans to launch the fast-paced action-sports gameRocket League in spring 2015.

The sequel to the international hit Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League expands on its successful pedigree with improved graphics and physics systems, a robust new single-player campaign, considerable customization options, and a fully-charged multiplayer game geared for a next-generation action-sports experience.

“We are excited to let the world know that Rocket League is coming in 2015 with a new set of next-generation upgrades, features and physics systems,” said Dave Hagewood, President, Psyonix. “We believe its unique mix of stunning physics, crazy aerial action, and compelling multiplayer combat will drive our current fan base – and a whole new generation of players – absolutely wild.”

Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions between cars and the ball, where mass and momentum determine how hard balls and cars hit each other, creating a unique and visceral playing experience.

Created by Psyonix, Rocket League is a one- to eight-player action-sports game due in spring 2015.
