Rocket League has captured the hearts of viewers all around the world with its fast gameplay and exciting rotations. Abios has extended its coverage for the game to include live data. This means that customers can enjoy a wider selection of data points from pregame and live data feeds for Rocket League.
Released by Psyonix in 2015, Rocket League is a sports game that has quickly amassed popularity among viewers and players alike. The game itself is incredibly easy to understand, with teams of three playing as gravity-defying cars trying to score goals against the opposing team.
With its simple mechanics, the game is easy to learn, but difficult to master. The pace is quick and the players need to develop significant mechanical skills to defy the opposing teams at the highest level. It is entertaining to watch and has sprawled a flourishing esports scene: the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS). It features three Majors and a World Championship tournament each year that fans can watch to see the best players and teams clash against each other.
Rocket League has proved to be a popular choice for brands looking to venture into esports. Much thanks to the absence of violence and gore in the game. In fact, it has received an E-rating from ESRB, meaning that it is suitable for everyone. It has resulted in the game seeing many non-endemic sponsors ranging from Lamborghini to 7-Eleven.
“Our expectation for Rocket League is that it will continue to grow and mature for many years to come. While it isn’t on par with the largest esports titles in terms of viewership yet, the game has carved out a family-friendly niche of exciting gameplay in an esports market dominated by hero and shooter-based games.
The game has been incredibly popular among sponsors, players and teams and we are excited to provide the tools needed for companies looking to enter the scene”.Rasmus Johns, Computer Vision Team Lead at Abios
