Rocket League Championship Series is heading our way in a collaboration between Twitch and Psyonix. Twitch will not only broadcast the League exclusively at Twitch.tv/RocketLeague, it will manage the operational tasks and work with Psyonix to build the community around the event.
The Rocket League Championship Series includes
- Open qualifiers (registration is open for teams of 3)
- $75,000 prize pool
- 3-month seasons
Games will be played on the PC and PlayStation 4, Xbox One owners can participate but will have to play the series on a different platform than normal. Twitch and Psyonix are looking at adding other platforms in the future.
Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Psyonix said
From the moment we hit the pitch last July, we knew that Rocket League was a legitimate esport. 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 opens on the 25th March 2016 at rocketleagueesports.com.
eSports is big business now days with many games and companies attempting to get in on the action with Twitch looking to be the go to online location for watching the events.
Rocket League is available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One now.
