Rocket League

Often described as “football with cars”, Rocket League is a sports-action game where gamers play alone (against a computer-controlled opponent), against another player, or as part of a team to try and score the highest number of goals. They can complete challenges to receive in-game rewards.

Rocket League can be played on a number of gaming platforms including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and PC. If players want to play in teams they can chat with their teammates by text or voice. Whilst the game is free to play, players can buy Credits to purchase items in the game or a Rocket Pass Premium for rewards as a player progresses through levels of the game.

A player with a child’s date of birth will need to provide a parent’s email address to gain consent to play the game.

Rocket League does have parental controls features available. These are available via the Epic Games Account Portal and can be used to put restrictions on in-game purchasing, and chat for example. In addition, some safety settings are applied by default to children’s accounts, such as disabling voice and text chat, although these can be changed. Parents can check for additional safety settings on the gaming platform being used to play Rocket League, such as a Windows PC.
