Indie developer Psyonix will release Rocket League Game of the Year Edition, an inclusive package that bundles together all three DLC expansions for the base game, for PlayStation 4 and Steam on PC later today.
Rocket League Game of the Year Edition costs $24.99. Besides the base game and all downloadable content, the PS4 version comes with avatars and themes.
The PC version is not yet available as of this writing. PS4 players can purchase the game now on PSN.
Although it wasn't the developer's first car-meets-soccer mashup, Rocket League started out slowly upon its release in 2015. Sony and Psyonix worked together to offer the game as a free download to PlayStation Plus subscribers over the summer. That exposure gave the game a boost, propelling it to sleeper hit status and earning it a top spot on numerous game-of-the-year lists, including Shacknews'.
"Because of your passion and your support, our relatively-small follow-up to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars has exceeded our wildest dreams and become something enormous," vice president Jeremy Dunham wrote on the game's website when Rocket League celebrated its one-year anniversary this summer.
"You have made new friends, crossed platforms into new frontiers, and inspired us in ways you'll never know (and in other ways you'll know very soon). You've made incredible saves, scored amazing goals, and you've changed the conversation in the world of competitive esports forever."
Psyonix is committed to extending Rocket League's already-considerable lifespan. Besides expansion packs and frequent patches that roll out features such as gameplay modes and customization options like creating your own flag, the developer committed to more updates during 2017.
"We're going to make our next 52 weeks even better than our first. We're going to give you all the things we mentioned above and then we're going to give you some more, because you deserve it. You're our community and you're our friends. Now, go play some games and we'll still be here to keep making them."

psyonix, why you want all my monies?
Because they've effectively exhausted the market for indie trash and the only way to keep the lights on is to have sheeple buy it again.
