Poor Xbox One gamers. You’ve been sitting on the bench for the past six months now just hoping to get some game time. But it looks like your luck is about to change.

Developer Psyonix and Microsoft have announced plans to bring Rocket League to the Xbox One, a few decades after the game was launched on Steam platforms and PlayStation 4.

The derpy-gravity football-on-wheels game pits two teams of overgrown toy cars against each other in the hopes to put a gigantic ball into the opposing team’s net. It’s everything modern football isn’t and should be, including no ref, no swan dives and a pitch full of fun. How fun? The game has sold around nine million copies globally since launch.

Rocket League will retail for US$20 when it’s launched, but come with a number of exclusives, including a Halo vehicle dubbed HogSticker, and a Gears of War-inspired Armadillo. There’s also some Sunset Overdrive content somewhere. All three previous DLCs are also bundled alongside the game.

The title will go live on 17 February.
