Now Playing: Rocket League: Ultimate Edition Releasing This August - GS News Update

A new retail version of Rocket League is coming to store shelves on August 28. Called Rocket League: Ultimate Edition, this version of Psyonix's popular sports game features 16 DLC Battle-Cars and a collection of cosmetic items.

Rocket League: Ultimate Edition includes the DLC that comes with the original game--Chaos Run, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, and Supersonic Fury--and the four Battle-Cars included in the Rocket League Collector's Edition: Esper, Masamune, Aftershock, and Marauder. The Ultimate Edition also adds the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Car Pack, DC Super Heroes DLC pack, and the Proteus, Triton, and Vulcan Battle-Cars. All of these updates come preloaded on the disc or cartridge, so you won't have to punch in a code to download all of the cars and add-ons.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Car Pack includes the Batmobile from the film. The Batmobile has proven to be one of Rocket League's most popular Battle-Cars--its wide and flat hit box makes it easy for players to dribble past opponents, whether on the ground or in the air. The pack also includes three antenna flags, each dedicated to one of DC Comic's famous trinity: Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.

The DC Super Heroes DLC Pack adds the Batmobiles from 2012's Dark Knight Rises and 1989's Batman. The two Battle-Cars haven't seen much popularity in Rocket League's competitive scene. The same can be said for the Proteus, Triton, and Vulcan.

The Octane, Dominus, and Breakout--as well as their updated models the Octane ZSR, Dominus GT, and Breakout Type-S--continue to be popular in competitive play for their balance of hit box height, width, and length as well as their tight turn radiuses. As said before, the Dawn of Justice Batmobile is also one of the top choices for competitive play. Mantis, which has a similar hit box and turn radius to the Batmobile, is beginning to rise in popularity as well.

Rocket League is available on Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC. The Ultimate Edition is only available for consoles.

Okay… so I gotta’ get something off my chest.

-Oh brother… here we go. Cue the eye rolls everybody.-

I have not fully played through Rocket League yet!!!

DUN DUN DUN!!!!

Part of the reason is that I’m not usually interested in these types of games and the other reason being that I here it is highly addictive. Like, Pokemon Red/Blue when they were first released in the mid 90’s addictive.

Is this game really that fun and if so can I pretty much kiss my personal life goodbye?

-Well, considering you don’t have a life… Ninja 😉-

-RLA (ROCKET LEAGUE ANONYMOUS) NINJA APPROVED-

@videogameninja: I've played quite few games in my day multiplayer and singleplayer. The only other multiplayer game that I MIGHT have more playtime in is Halo 2. Rocket League will consume you if you actually take the time to learn the mechanics. It's one of the most satisfying games I've ever played, easy to grasp the concept but it has an extremely high skill ceiling. It's been out for over 2 years and they're still learning new things that you can pull off, which is impressive considering that all the maps are basically the same and every game has the same objective. I recommend it my dude, you'll either decide it isn't for you inside of a week or you'll be consumed for the next 6 months at least.

@fiesel: Totally agree. I'm an ooooold gamer, from back in the days of Doom and Duke 3d modem games. I completely QUIT gaming for the last 11 years. RL brought me back. Though it's honestly the only game I care to play.

@videogameninja: 5 minute matches and a relatively easy learning curve, it was the perfect surprise to me when I played it w my nephew. I went out and bought it the next day. Watching him play fortnite I can see why that is so popular as well, however I'm holding off on getting into that. I have such a big back log of games I need to play through still that I bought last black friday... Rocket league is definitely awesome.

@videogameninja: I have a little over 32 days total time in the game (about 770 hours), so I can confirm this game will take over your life if you let it. But most of my time with Rocket League is spent playing with friends who ask me for "one more game." If you don't have friends like that, then you should be fine! If you do...well...just remember to get up and eat some food every once in a while...
