The Rocket League Championship Series is returning for another year. Rocket League’s developer, Psyonix is partnering with Twitch to bring back the competition for its second season. Beginning today, the championship is accepting registration for players interested in testing their skills.
Players must sign-up in teams of three to compete for a chance to win cash prizes from the $250,000 USD pool. The Rocket League Championship Series Season 2 will take place over the course of three months and will be broadcast live at Twitch.tv/RocketLeague.
Rocket League is a fast-paced sports game in which player-controlled vehicles try to score points by pushing a ball into their opponent’s goal. The game is popular for its multiplayer modes that include both local and online play. Rocket League was adopted as an eSport last year for Season 1 of the Championship Series, which attracted over 20,000 participants and 2.3 million viewers. Vice President of Psyonix, Jeremy Dunham, has assured fans that the company has learned a lot from the inaugural competition and intends to make Season 2 an even better experience.
The Open Qualifiers for RLCS Season 2 begin on September 10th for North American teams. Those interested in learning more about the championship or signing-up can do so here.
