Who would have guessed that taking a bunch of small cars, throwing them in an arena, and adding a large ball would prove so popular?
Psyonix’ Rocket League launched back on 7 July and it’s proved a massive hit with PC and console gamers proving that gameplay is everything.
This evening Psyonix revealed that Rocket League has been downloaded a whopping 5 million times since launch.
AMAZING! More than 5 MILLION downloads since we launched on July 7! Your continued support for our game is truly humbling.
SteamSpy puts the number of PC Rocket League downloads in the 500,000 range, which is not too surprising given that it was a PS Plus giveaway on PS4.
Could this be the overall GOTY? Could Rocket League win football game of the year instead of FIFA 16? It is just football you know, which is why it’s great to see that a twist on the great game can be enjoyed by so many.
The game will be receiving an update in the not too distant future along with the new free Utopia Colisseum DLC as Psyonix start experimenting with different arena layouts which will be interesting.
