Rocket League has been gaining some traction within the competitive gaming community ever since it was first introduced, and has only been proving it’s place within the eSports scene more and more as time has gone on.
With that said, the developer Psyonix, feels it’s time to take things to the next level, as they have announced the official Rocket League Championship Series for PlayStation 4, and PC players.
The Championship Series is set to kick off in March, with each season lasting three months. The format will be 3v3 matches, with players from North America, and Europe competing. Matches will be broadcasted via Twitch.TV on both platforms, so if you are competing, rest assured you will still be able to catch the action!
Players will be competing for a $75,000 prize pool, with two qualifying rounds offering $10,000 worth of prizes, each, for the winning team. Qualifying rounds will have open qualifiers, ultimately leading into the international finals where the top four teams from each region will be competing for the grand prize.
“From the moment we hit the pitch last July, we knew that Rocket League was a legitimate esport,” Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Psyonix said in a press release. “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!”
Registration for the Rocket League Championship Series will open on March 25th.
