This is a sequel to a PS3 game I'd never heard of (Supersonic Rocket Powered Battle Cars) coming to PS4 and PC this summer.
It's presently in a public closed beta on the PS4, which will be running until May 3rd and you can still sign up for http://psyonix.com/BC2/Invite/RocketLeagueSignupPS4.php?Keyword=PSBlog

Basically it's 3v3 soccer played with RC cars with jumpjet boosters.   From my limited time with the beta it's pretty fun, but some games resemble soccer as played by 3 year olds, with everyone just chasing madly after the ball.  Your teammates also can cause you more problems than your opponent, whether by bumping you or the ball as you are lining up a perfect shot in their zest to just hit it.

Some highlights from someone far more skilled than I am at the game, though I have pulled off an epic save and scored some cool goals.

I'm not sold on the name, as I was expecting something quite different from that alone.

A goal I was pretty happy with.

And here's a pretty epic full match I had earlier.  I make some good plays, some terrible ones, and some really lucky ones.  Game goes to overtime.  I tend to play with ballcam on, you can also toggle it off so the camera stays behind the car but I find it harder to keep track of the ball that way.

Count me in! That looks like a blast.  I've heard it mentioned many times but always forgot to look up videos of it.  I'm signing up for the beta right now.

It really elicits that "ok just one more match" too.

I wish I would get invited for this weekend!  I love soccer anyway, and this just looks awesome.

If you don't get in this weekend the rumor is there is going to be another beta in a couple of weeks.

GT did their own preview of this and apparently no one thought to update the thread  Roll Eyes

Been playing on PS4 since it's free with Plus. Been allot of fun so far. It doesn't try to be more than it is. Just crazy arcade soccer with vehicles. Controls well, with quick games. This will sit on my HD for a long time as a great pick up,and play whenever I have a little free time to kill.
