by Rainier on Nov. 2, 2021 @ 9:28 a.m. PDT

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.

BMW, a name synonymous with performance, speed, and excellence, is gearing up to take one of its cars from the road to the Rocket League pitch! Get ready to harness the power of the BMW M240i beginning November 4 for a limited time!

The sleek BMW M240i has iconic stylings and a roaring 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine. In Rocket League, it's equipped with a torching rocket boost and a Dominus hitbox, and it's ready to go airborne for assists and goals! The BMW M240i will be available for 1100 Credits and comes with BMW M240i Wheels, the signature Thundernight Metallic Decal, United In Rivalry Animated Decal that changes color when going supersonic, Bavarian Hat Topper, and the BMW Player Banner. Plus, the BMW M240i is customizable with other Rocket League items! 

*NOTE: The BMW M240i Wheels cannot be used by other cars. Licensed customization items cannot be used by the BMW M240i

In addition to bringing the BMW M240i to Rocket League, BMW will also drive its competitive prowess to the RLCS 2021-22 Season! BMW will be the title sponsor of the second regional tournament in the European circuit.
