Rocket League, the award-winning vehicular soccer title from Psyonix, is being added to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass.
Microsoft already teased an announcement related to Rocket League for this month’s episode of Inside Xbox on Twitter overnight, and the game has now popped up on both the Xbox store page and official MS Store.
The new addition to Microsoft’s game subscription service, often described as the Netflix for games, will likely be officially announced during Inside Inbox later tonight.
Rocket League was released for Xbox One back in February of 2016. "With the release of the Xbox One version, fans now have access to some of the coolest exclusives out there, along with the kind of multiplayer gameplay that has made Rocket League a passion for players and our studio," said Dave Hagewood, Studio Director and CEO, Psyonix. "We're packing a lot of content in there right off the bat, which we hope is a warm welcome for our new community of Xbox One players all over the world."
Microsoft announced the debut of its Xbox Game Pass back in February of 2017. Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that new releases from Microsoft Studios would be added upon the day of release. “Moving forward, we plan to release all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release”, Xbox head Phil Spencer said. “This means that when Sea of Thieves launches on March 20, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass to all members.”
Spencer added, “this plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch.”
