Well, that's our first impression based on the announcement and launch trailer - which highlights the new 3v3 arena rocket-launcher based combat of Nexon and Final Strike Games' Rocket Arena. Which is about to begin a Closed Beta run from May 23 to May 29 via the Nexon Launcher and Steam.
Check it out.
Rocket Arena brings a unique 3-on-3 cross-platform experience to the first-person shooter genre and features a roster of vibrant characters competing in quick 5-minute matches in the Rocket Championship Tour. Set in the curious World of Crater, Rocket Arena introduces special gameplay mechanics distinct from standard shooters, revelling in a host of colourful weapons and abilities that utilize fanciful rockets in imaginative forms.
“We developed Rocket Arena with high-quality gameplay mechanics, superb controls, and the network code required of an online FPS. Rocket Arena is an intricate shooter at its core, complete with a marvelous world, colourful characters, and ridiculous rockets,” said Kevin Franklin, Founder/CEO of Final Strike Games. “Nexon shared our vision for Rocket Arena and provided the resources and expertise to realize our goal. The result is a game that our team is exceptionally proud of, and look forward to playing every day.”
The Closed Beta which kicks off tomorrow will feature six maps, four game modes, and six characters - which is impressive. Head here to sign-up and get details on some of the special cosmetic beta-rewards. Although no release date has been set Rocket Arena will feature cross-play between PC and Xbox One at launch, with a PS4 version also in development.
