‘Rocket League’s Third Anniversary is Well Underway With Time-Limited Additions

Earlier this week, Rocket League kicked off its third anniversary celebrations, and boy did it ever bring new content - even if it is time-limited.

Yet here we are, Rocket League being not only a thing, but an incredibly popular (and awesome, based on personal experience) one at that. So much in fact, that it's about to become… an eSport! Incredibly groovy.
