Rocket League is finally coming to Eleague. The “football with cars” game has slowly developed a massive fan following and has seen steady, consistent growth over the years. Rocket League has seen a lot of support from their developers Psyonix, who have put in a lot of effort into the development of the game as well as the esports scene.
Rocket League is definitely one of the easier to watch games especially for non-endemic esports fans.
The ELEAGUE Cup: Rocket League, created in partnership with independent video game developer and publisher PSYONIX, will begin Friday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m. ET with a live invitational tournament on Twitch and YouTube. ELEAGUE will invite the world’s best eight teams – based on their performances at the elite level of pro competition – to play in The ELEAGUE Cup: Rocket League live tournament. In the spirit of international soccer competitions, two four-team groups will each play a round robin with the top two finishers from each group moving on to a single-elimination playoff. Live tournament coverage will continue Saturday, Dec. 2, and Sunday, Dec. 3, starting at 2 p.m. on Twitch and YouTube. Teams will compete live from ELEAGUE Arena at Turner Studios in Atlanta for $150,000 in prize money.
TBS will also present a three-episode feature series documenting the game’s most accomplished teams and players as they compete at the highest level, including their journey through The ELEAGUE Cup: Rocket League. The series will premiere Friday, Dec. 1, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TBS, with the second and third editions airing at the same time each of the following two Fridays (Dec. 8 and Dec. 15).
