Psyonix’s Rocket League has become very popular in a very short amount of time on PC and PlayStation 4. It has already inspired a mod in StarCraft II only weeks after its release.
Below is video footage of Aqua League, the StarCraft Arcade game that follows the Rocket League mechanics. Players compete in a rectangular arena to knock a ball into the opposing team’s goal. Boost powerups are positioned around the arena to increase speed. Players can be killed to remove them from the game for a short time.
In Aqua League, players choose to play as Naga or Revenant, two races from WarCraft. Other differences include playing in a pool of water and when a team scores, a tidal wave is sent across the arena.
Previously, to play the StarCraft Arcade, you had to own one version of StarCraft II, but last year Blizzard made it available to everyone. Aqua League is still in development, so it’s not available to play just yet.
