Nation, talk about fun.

Rocket League has taken the gaming world by storm and now, fans of the The Rocket-Car soccer game (I can’t believe I just typed that) have the chance to participate in a new tournament that takes the game to a whole new level. Twitch and the game’s developer, Psyonix, are to thank for this new cash prize tournament. Check out all the details below (via Business Wire)

Starting in March, players interested in competing in the inaugural season of the Rocket League Championship Series can register in teams of three for a chance to win the very first Rocket League championship title. The three-month season kicks off with open qualifiers and will have a total prize pool of $75,000 USD. All matches will be played on the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) computer entertainment system and Windows PC with additional platform support to be revealed in the future.

Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, of Psyonix commented on the announcement with the following (via RocketLeagueSports.com):

“From the moment we hit the pitch last July, we knew that Rocket League was a legitimate esport, Twitch and its streamers have been an instrumental part of our success since we launched last July, and that made them a perfect match for us. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with a team that we respect as highly as we do Twitch, and we can’t wait to show the world what we can do in esports together!”

It’s not hard to see why the game has done so well, from its replayability alone. Hell the Batmobile from Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice is coming to the game, in addition to a number of other unique vehicles, including the DeLorean from Back to the Future.

If you haven’t already given it a try, then I recommend you do so soon, but prepare yourself to donate hours of your time to it as well because once you fall down the Rocket League rabbit hole – it’s hard to climb out of it.

Rocket League is available now for the PS4, Xbox One, Windows, Linux, and Mac OS and make sure to keep it locked here on GeekNation for all your video game news.
