EA and Final Strike Games have detailed all the explosive content coming to Season 1 of the upcoming cross-play hero arena shooter, Rocket Arena. Come 28 July, two weeks post-launch, the live service will kick off adding new maps, modes, a variety of in-game events and a new hero to the game available for free for all players.
Rocket Arena Season 1 will follow the events and heroes of the Rocket Championship Tour, where players discover each hero’s personal motivations for winning the Tour Trophy, and how that drive reflects on their personality, backstory, and passions. New hero, Flux, will be joining too besides the first major in-game event, new maps, and daily and weekly challenges. Over 10 new playlists will be introduced, representing Rocket Arena’s Social, PVE, and Ranked Modes.
Rocket Arena’s live service is at the core of the game’s design and will allow players to dive deeper into the overarching story, written by TaleSpin Writer/Co-Creator Len Uhley with the direction of Sly Cooper Co-Creator Dev Madan (now the Lead Art Director at Final Strike Games). Every season will run for approximately 3 months and will include a new playable character, limited-time events, game mode and playlist rotations, a new Blast Pass, a new ranked season and much more!

Cross-play with PS4, Xbox One and PC Origin/Steam players when the game launches 14 July.
