Xbox Store Today: Rocket League, Layers of Fear, Pixel Piracy, more


If you ever wanted to combine rocket-powered cars and “The Beautiful Game,” then you’re in luck, Rocket League is now available to download for the Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store. Psyonix’s soccer sim will also feature a variety of Xbox One-exclusive content including cars patterned after the Warthog from Halo and the Armadillo from Gears of War.

Also available this week is Layers of Fear (Xbox One), a first-person “psychedelic” horror game that asks players to delve into the mind of an insane painter. I guess my question is, how is that different from any other painter? (Ba-Dum Tish).

Finally, Pixel Piracy will give players the chance to explore a retro-themed open world pirate sim, and Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is yet another game where Japanese schoolgirls do battle with swords. Both games are available for Xbox One.

More information on all four titles can be found after the break.
