What is Rocket League?
Rocket League is a soccer-style video game developed by Psyonix. Teams of 1 to 4 players drive rocket powered cars and push a large ball around in an attempt to put it in the other team’s net. Doing so earns 1 point and the most points at the end of the game wins. A match typically lasts 5 minutes. Players can use boosts to take to the air, drive up walls and ceilings, or destroy another player.
