Rocket League is finally coming to the Xbox One next Wednesday - and it will cost $19.99 (approx. Rs. 1,360), game developer Psyonix announced in a blog post on Xbox Wire.
The game's announcement for Microsoft's current-gen console system was made back in December, and with the release just a week away, Xbox One owners will surely start to salivate.

Rocket League owners on PS4 and Windows have been able to compete against each other, which has made the now 9-million-strong community really feel alive.
Psyonix provided no update on the game's release for OS X and Linux. Rocket League has grossed over $50 million (approximately Rs. 331 crores) since launch, and picked up two awards at The Game Awards 2015.
