Independent developer Psyonix has launched Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch.

The new release comes alongside the game’s previously released PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions.

It’s worth mentioning the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions all support cross-play, however the Switch version only allows for play with the PC and Xbox One versions.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Psyonix:

Soccer meets driving once again in the long-awaited, physics-based sequel to the beloved arena classic, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars!

A futuristic Sports-Action game, Rocket League®, equips players with booster-rigged vehicles that can be crashed into balls for incredible goals or epic saves across multiple, highly-detailed arenas. Using an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions, Rocket League® relies on mass and momentum to give players a complete sense of intuitive control in this unbelievable, high-octane re-imagining of association football.

Key Features:

  • All-new Season Mode that allows players to enjoy a full single-player experience
  • Extensive Battle-Car customizations with more than 10 billion possible combinations
  • Unlockable items and vehicles, stat tracking, leaderboards, and more
  • Addictive 8-player online action with a variety of different team sizes and configurations
  • Amazing 2-, 3-, and 4-player splitscreen mode that can be played locally or taken online against other splitscreen players
  • Broadcast-quality replays that allow you to fast forward, rewind, or view the action from anywhere in the arena
  • Competitive cross-platform gameplay with PC and Xbox One users

    I had to buy it again on the Switch so I could play it friends that are…what’s that term…non-PCfags? Still fun, but what a downgrade going from triple to single screen.

    Pretty sure it has cross platform multiplayer?

    It does, but you can’t invite or accept invites from players on other platforms.

    Discord group? Discord is a phone app too. Good for getting a group of people together.

    I don’t think there’s any way to organize multiplayer games with people you know that are on other platforms. Simply, you all have to be on the same platform to organize multiplayer matches with or against each other.
