Still time to register for “Battle in the Forest” Esports Gaming Tournament, Aug. 22-23

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department will host a two-day online esports gaming tournament featuring “Rocket League” on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 22-23. Open to players ages 10 and older, the inaugural “Battle in the Forest” will be played online and live streamed on Twitch.tv. Registration continues at https://bit.ly/BattleintheForest, and there is no cost to participate.

Teams comprised of three players each will compete in the two-day tournament which will run in conjunction with “Bull City Gaming.” Qualifying rounds will take place Saturday with the top eight teams battling it out in the finals on Sunday.

The top two teams will receive a variety of prizes donated by Ads N Art Screenprinting, Chick-fil-A, Barton College Esports, Contender eSports, MSG Art and Design, Wake Forest Awards & Engraving, and Play4Life Comics. 

Considered one of the top esports games in the nation, Rocket League is a vehicular soccer video game developed and published by Psyonix. The game was first released for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 in July 2015, with ports for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch released later. 

According to Digital Trends, “There are few games that embody “pure fun” quite like Rocket League. It’s not a hard game to understand: You drive a car, you hit a massive ball into the opposing goal, and first team to score the most points wins. It’s that simplicity that makes Rocket League such an excellent game, though. No matter if you’re an indoctrinated RPG player with thousands of hours on record or someone who likes to take a load off with Animal Crossing, Rocket League has something for you.”
