If you’re anything like me you love Rocket League. I’ve spent more hours than I care to admit cracking jokes with friends over our mics all while attempting to out-do one another with our show-boating.
And now Rocket League is hosting a championship, in partnership with Twitch, allowing players to compete for a cash prize. The Rocket League Championship Series will begin in March with a three month series. There are of course open qualifiers but the RSLC carries a prize of $75,000.
“From the moment we hit the pitch last July, we knew that Rocket League was a legitimate esport,” says Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Psyonix. “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!”
All matches will be played on the Playstation 4 system and Windows PC, and those interested can register from March 25th at the Rocket League eSports site. The top four teams in North America and Europe will be invited to a live International Finals event which will be streamed by Twitch.
