by on July 14, 2020

Final Strike Games along with EA have announced today that brand new hero shooter Rocket Arena is out now.

Rocket Arena is an “explosive” 3 versus 3 shooter where rockets control everything. It is available now with cross-play support on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Origin and Steam.

A hero shooter, Rocket Arena features a diverse roster of ten playable heroes with customisable play styles.

“Our game is a truly unique hero shooter that’s unlike anything players have experienced. At the surface, the fun and frantic combat is quick to grasp, but behind the curtain there is a robust, deep game that’s highly competitive, full of rockets, and challenging to master,” said Kevin Franklin, Co-Founder of Final Strike Games. “Our EA partnership has allowed our team to realise an un-compromised vision of Rocket Arena. With their support, we’ve crafted a deep multiplayer game, rich world and IP that we are incredibly proud of. We already have tons of free post-launch content in the works and can’t wait to share what else we have in store for all our players.”
