has details on the season and the Live Service they say is at the core of the
game's design. They accompany this with a new
Heroes of Crater Trailer
and a World of Crater
from a couple of days ago. Here's word:
Starting July 28, Season 1 will
follow our heroes as they take part in the famous Rocket Arena Championship
Tour. Previous champions and new competitors alike will battle it out across the
World of Crater. Each of the heroes have their own personal motivations to win
the Tour Trophy, their drive reflects on their personality, backstory, and
passions. Jayto won last year’s tournament on an ‘accidental rocket’, so he
hopes to prove himself while his home region, Boom City, hosts the opening
ceremonies of the Season 1 tour.
This summer, Season 1 takes the Championship Tour to new lands introducing our
first major in-game event, which will bring new maps, and daily and weekly
challenges. Over 10 new playlists will be introduced, representing Rocket
Arena’s Social, PVE, and Ranked Modes. Season 1’s final major event will launch
this fall and again you’ll see the same level of new content introduced to
Rocket Arena as in the first event.
