Rocket League Collector’s Edition Review
Rocket League has become a hit among auto enthusiasts, gamers, and sports lovers of all ages. Created by Psyonix as the sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, the racing-meets-soccer video game was released as a digital exclusive for PC and PlayStation 4 but has since expanded to include Xbox One as well. To celebrate the indie title’s one-year anniversary, Psyonix released a physical Collector’s Edition copy of the game with a few added bonuses.

Inside the Case
Inside the physical Rocket League Collector’s Edition case are the following items:
- Rocket League video game
- Collector’s Edition limited art print
- Extra downloadable content access code
- Four additional timed-exclusive battle-cars
Limited Art Print
Originally hand-drawn by Jay Zhang, a Psyonix concept artist, the limited art print was produced exclusively for the physical launch of Rocket League. The glossy piece features the Octane battle-car front and center with the ball just above the nose. The Road Hog, playing for the opposite team, brings up the rear.
Extra Downloadable Content
In addition to the full Rocket League game, the Collector’s Edition also includes an access code for most of the previously released downloadable content. Downloadable content unlocked via the access code includes Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, and Chaos Run. The only downloable battle-car content not included is Back to the Future (DeLorean) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Batmobile).
As an added bonus, Rocket League Collector’s Edition owners received access to four timed-exclusive battle-cars. The Marauder and Aftershock made their return from Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars while the Neo Tokyo-inspired Esper and Masamune are entirely new to the title. The new cars became available to all players as of July 18th.
Is It worth It?
The Rocket League Collector’s Edition costs a penny shy of $30 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and $20 for PC. So, is it worth the money? Let’s break it down piece by piece.
The sole Rocket League game costs $20 if downloaded digitally. Supersonic Fury ($4), Revenge of the Battle-Cars ($4), and Chaos Run ($4) bring the total value up to $32. As for the Aftershock, Marauder, Esper, and Masamune, each individual battle-car costs $2, bringing the total value of the Collector’s Edition to $40. There’s no dollar value for the limited art print but even without it, the Rocket League Collector’s Edition’s value outweighs the $30 price tag.
The Rocket League Collector’s Edition is available for all platforms on Amazon and at select retail outlets.
