Psyonix, ESPN Team Up For Rocket League Collab at X Games Aspen 2021
Psyonix, the San Diego video game developer, and ESPN’s X Games have teamed up to celebrate the upcoming X Games in Aspen with new Rocket League items and a Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) X Regional event. RLCS X will see the introduction of the RLCS X Games: North American Regional that will take place online on January 23-24 and January 30-31.
Rocket League will feature X Games-inspired items in the Item Shop from January 21-24 and from January 28-31. Items in the X Games Tab will include the X Games Octane Decal, X Games Wheels, and Snowblind Topper. There will also be two free items to claim, the X-Skis Player Banner and the X-Board Player Banner.
In addition, RLCS X will see the introduction of the RLCS X Games: North American Regional that will take place online on January 23-24 and January 30-31. This regional is both an official part of the RLCS X circuit and an official X Games Aspen event where the top North American teams will compete against each other, with the winning team earning RLCS X Games medals. The RLCS X Games will be available on the ESPN App and live on Twitch and YouTube starting at 10 a.m. PT (6 p.m. UTC) beginning on January 23. Viewers will also have a chance to earn new X Games Fan Rewards (the Knuckle Huck Player Banner, and X-Board and X-Skis Toppers) if they tune-in on Twitch for the duration of the RLCS X Games.
Psyonix and X Games previously collaborated in 2017 for the FACEIT X Games Rocket League Invitational within X Fest in Minneapolis.
