Rocket Arena is a unique take on First Person Shooters, where the very
method you use taking out opponents has an explosive change: Battle is won not
by putting enemies into the dirt, but to send them blasting off into the sky!
Every character has their own loadout of bombs, traps, spells and, yes, rockets
that send enemies caught within them flying. The more damage they take, the
further they'll be hurtled around by each and every strike until they're knocked
out of the arena!

game modes to shake things up, there's plenty for you to enjoy during the Closed
Beta and when Rocket Arena officially launches!
