Details regarding the content in the updated retail version will be confirmed at a later time.

“Rocket League has such wide appeal across all audiences, it’s no wonder the game is such a huge success,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales, Americas, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment.  “We’re very excited to be working with Psyonix to bring the game to retailers across the globe.”

“Warner Bros. has already proven to be a great partner,” said Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Publishing at Psyonix. “We first collaborated on Batman v Superman DLC for Rocket League in early 2016 and we have continued to be impressed with the team’s knowledge, professionalism, reach and enthusiasm for video games. They are the ideal partner to help us push Rocket League to another level at retail.”

  1. I’m so stoked for this game! And I definitely want the digital version. I’m sure it’s a game I’m going to be playing in bursts for a very long time. It’ll be much easier to switch between Rocket League and whatever cartridge game I’m playing (Mario Odyssey, BoTW+DLC, Kirby, Yoshi, Metroid Prime 4, etc.). I cannot wait to play every single one of those games I just mentioned… ^-^

    1. why would it be frustrating with the digital shoulder buttons? i am either moving or im not. its that simple. on a more ‘traditional driving game’ ala Gran Turismo or something your point would be valid, but Rocket League is certainly not that.
