As going hands-on with the 3v3 action of Rocket Arena recently, we also had the chance to sit down with the CEO of Final Strike Games. In our chat we discussed the switch away from the free-to-play first-person version we saw in 2019, to the full-featured third-person pick-up-and-play style present in the game out next week.
Yeah, Rocket Arena is out July 14 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $39.95 AUD - and will support cross-plat on day one.
“The game that was played last year was in first-person and it was quite a bit faster,” Kevin says of the last year or so of development. Going third-person put more focus on character and led to a major new gameplay mechanic – air dodge. “It works along alongside the core combat loop where you can use rocket-jump, rocket-climb, and now air-dodge to kind of get back into the action.”
