Rocket League is a popular vehicular soccer video game that was released on the PC platform in the summer of 2015. By combining the genres of fast-paced driving games and soccer, this esports arcade title immediately became one of the largest successes of the year and one of the most approachable online competitive titles that can be played by gamers of all ages.

Originally conceived under as a 2008 game “Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars”, developers at Psyonix managed to rework the game and release an instant classic upon an unexpecting market.

The gameplay of Rocket League for PC can most easily be explained as being "soccer, but with rocket-powered cars". It’s as simple as that. The game main mode is centered on two teams of 4 players, who are chasing a very large and bouncy ball inside a futuristic stadium whose walls enabled cars to easily bounce back toward the action.

The goal of each match is to, of course, push the ball through the opposing goal. To make the ball control a bit easier, each of the cars has the ability to perform jumps and to partially control their flight while in the air. During the regular play (which is filled with car crashes and quick turnarounds between offense and defense) the cars also get the ability to develop boost power, which can be used to quickly accelerate in most tactical moments.

In the addition to the popular casual and ranked online modes (which can be played with varying number of players per team), the game also supports several other gameplay modes such as fully featured offline Season Mode, Mutator mods, basketball-inspired mode, and more. The game also features extensive support for cosmetic customization of players' vehicles, with more than 500 trillion possible combinations of cosmetic items.

After several years on the market, the popularity of the game has grown to such a degree that it has become one of the leading eSports titles that are played worldwide by both casual players and professional teams. The most popular tournaments include ESL, Major League Gaming, and Psyonix's own Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS).

Even though it offers fantastic visual style and lots of exquisite rendering details, Rocket League is also an eSports-friendly title that can be played on a wide variety of PC configurations, including many laptops with a dedicated GPU chip. The game is optimized to run on Windows 7 or newer versions of Windows OS (64-bit only).
