If you want more Rocket League, make sure to check out our interview with Josh Watson from Psyonix, where he discusses the Rocket League community and the Eports scene around it:
PlayStation LifeStyle: How would you describe this event to someone who has never seen it before?
Josh Watson, Esports Operation Manager at Psyonix: This event is called the Universal Open Rocket League. It is a partnership between NBC Sports Network, and FACEIT with Psyonix. But the basic idea here is that it’s the first-ever regional to national, international competition for Rocket League. This is the first time that NBC and FACEIT have done this property together. The basic idea is that, you start in these regional competitions, these qualifiers that culminate to this national or international events here, the finals, where we’re at in Santa Ana.
The Rocket League update launches September 28.
