If you’ve been looking for a new explosive shooter to take up your time, Rocket Arena has finally landed on Steam. Receiving pretty favorable reviews, Rocket Arena is a 3v3 shooter where everything fired is a rocket. That’s right, no alternate ammo types here, just non-stop, explosive action.
A Fresh Take on the Hero Shooter Genre
Just like Overwatch, Apex Legends and even Team Fortress 2, this is a hero shooter game at heart. You’ll take control of one of ten playable characters during game play, each with their own unique look, story and special abilities.
There is a decent variety between characters with a couple of different play styles to try out. It won’t be too long before you decide your perfect choice for hours to come. Each character also has a distinct way of traversing the map and repelling incoming attacks.
There are technically no deaths in Rocket Arena either, making it a pretty friendly game for all ages - although the fast paced action may be a little too quick for younger audiences. Instead, you’ll simply knock your enemies around with rockets. With no health to worry about, the more you get hit, the further away you’ll fly on subsequent hits.

There is also a Rocket Arena Mythic Edition available which nets you a bunch of the expected rewards .In this case, different outfits, ‘trails’ and rocket fuel are included. Whether this is worth the extra bit of cash is always a tricky choice, especially when it’s mostly for cosmetic extras.
