Description

No Caption Provided

Rocket Arena combines three versus three (3v3) multiplayer fights and traditional shooting mechanisms with mostly non-lethal gameplay, instead focusing on knockback and ring-outs. The game made by Final Strike Games, located in Bellevue, Washington, is built in association with publisher Nexon America. As such, the game is hosted both on Steam and Nexon’s own launcher. Cross-platform play is also available with Xbox One and Playstation 4.

There are many influences in Rocket Arena, taking cues from games like Paladins and Super Smash Bros. Characters in the game come with both a fire and alternate fire, as well as an active ability. These tools are based on mobility, given the non-lethal nature of the game.

Rocket Arena is set in the fictional world of Crater. Players participate in the Rocket Championship Tour, in an attempt to obtain the Rocket Trophy. The competition is akin to the Olympics, where each hero represents their respective region in Crater. Every first and last event in the tour is held in the host city of the person who won the previous year. The championship is in its 98th year, with the character, Jayto, winning previously for their region of Boom City, a futuristic city built in the clouds.

The reveal trailer for Rocket Arena licenses the use of Chumbawamba’s hit song, “Tubthumping.”

Game modes

While Rocket Arena has a main focus on a knockout mode, it is not the only thing available in-game. There are four modes known that each spin traditional systems with the game’s non-lethal gameplay. Rounds are set to only last five minutes and include a matchmaking system.

Here are the four modes:

– Knockout: Akin to Super Smash Bros, players try to ring-out others. Each person is given three stocks, also known as lives, which are spent when exiting the play arena. The winner is the team who can deplete the opponent team of all stocks. Unlike Super Smash Bros, however, participants without stocks can still participate in the game, like in games such as Bomberman.

– Rocketball: Teams fight over a ball and try to throw it in the opponent’s goal, like the Team Fortress Push map or Lawbreakers’ Blitzball mode.

– Mega Rocket: A classic point control mode, except the capture zones are decided by the impact of large incoming rockets. Knockback gameplay can be used to keep opponents out of the zones.

– Rocketbot Attack: Unlike previous player versus player (PvP) modes, this is a player versus event (PvE) variant that lets players cooperate with each other to defeat a horde of artificial intelligence (AI) opponents.

Characters

Each hero in Rocket Arena represents their given region in the world of Crater.
