EA secretly lowers ‘Rocket Arena’ price to $5

Developer EA has discretely lowered the cost of Rocket Arena on all playable platforms. The game is now only at $5 and it seems like this wouldn’t change anytime soon.

Rocket Arena is a 3v3 hero shooting game released by EA last July 14. On July 28, two weeks after its launch, Season One officially kicked off. The game also featured crossplay for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

More players for Rocket Arena

As the name of the game implies, the game allows players to launch tons of rockets at people inside an arena. Despite only two months since its release, EA decided to put the game on sale to probably encourage more players to join in its small community.

It is also possible that the price discount could present a revised fixed cost of Rocket Arena. Currently, the game is listed at $5 on Steam, PlayStation Store, and Microsoft Store. None of them marks the price as discounted.

EA needs to address problems

Reviews of the game are mixed which indicates that the Rocket Arena’s release has been pretty divided. The discounted price might be developer First Strike’s move to entice gamers in order to release new content and put the game back into a positive trajectory. It is also worth noting that the game is free to download for all players who have Prime Gaming subscriptions starting September 3.

Rocket Arena received its poor reviews due to its accessibility issues. Players complained about bad controller mapping and a poor notification system for incoming rockets. EA needs to work out all the game’s problems if they want to see the game achieve some success.

Rocket Arena Season One is still ongoing and players recently received a new hero named Flux.
