Suffice it to say, Rocket League has experienced no shortage of incredible branding crossovers. Rocket League has done some of the most highly-rated collaborations in the Esports industry. In this blog, we'll be talking about some of these most famous collaborations!
Psyonix created and released the video game Rocket League, which mainly features motorized soccer. The game was initially released in July 2015 for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows, with additional adaptations for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. For the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, 505 Games started distributing a physical retail version in June 2016. By the end of 2017, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment took over distribution. Despite the availability of versions for macOS and Linux in 2016, support for their online services was discontinued in 2020. In September 2020, players could play the game for free.
Up to eight players can be allocated to each of the two teams in Rocket League, which is described as "soccer with rocket-powered cars." In order to gain points during a game, each side must hit a ball into the opponent's goal.
