Rocket Arena Twitch Rivals Crater Cup: How to watch, line-up and start time

Rocket Arena’s launch is set to coincide with a special tournament featuring top streamers and pro players, so here’s where you can catch the Twitch Rivals Crater Cup.
Rocket Arena is a new 3v3 third-person shooter which takes more than a few cues from Fortnite’s aesthetic, while throwing in lots more rockets. 

Mechanically, it’s more akin to hero shooters like Overwatch and Apex Legends - featuring a roster of 10 characters at launch all with their own unique special abilities. 

To coincide with Rocket Arena’s launch on 14th July on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Twitch is hosting a special tournament featuring a number of top players. Here’s what to expect and how you can catch all the action. 


What is the Rocket Arena Twitch Rivals Crater Cup? 

Like previous Twitch Rivals events, the Rocket Arena Crater Cup will see a number of top streamers and pro players compete for a $100k cash prize. 

It’ll also act as a showcase for Rocket Arena itself, debuting as the game launches.
