Rocket League is a fast-paced action-sports game featuring amazing physics, crazy aerial action, and compelling multiplayer combat.

The sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League expands on its successful pedigree with improved graphics and physics systems, a robust new single-player campaign, considerable customization options, and a fully-charged multiplayer game geared for a next-generation action-sports experience.

Rocket League is a futuristic action-sports game where players pilot rocket-powered vehicles in an enhanced version of soccer by driving their vehicles into the ball and other players in a variety of arenas. Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions between cars and the ball, where mass and momentum determine how hard balls and cars hit each other, creating a unique and visceral playing experience.

Thank you! Thank you very much!

We’re extremely excited about the success of Rocket League since its launch on July 7th, with more than 5 million combined downloads between PC and PS4 in less than a month! -- and we couldn’t have done it without you! We're stunned, humbled, and grateful for the positive reception to Rocket League," said Dave Hagewood, President, Psyonix.
