Rocket League

There’s never been a better time to get in on Rocket League.  While the racing-meets-soccer title originally launched in 2015, developer Psyonix shifted the game from a paid experience to free-to-play in 2020. This has led to a huge influx of players, including lapsed fans and newcomers.  The soccer action has never been more intense, and the driving is more white-knuckle than ever!  Pick your perfect team of star drivers to hit the pitch, and then dominate the competition with your superior skills!

Rainbow Six Siege

There are plenty of games out there that require close work with teammates, but there may be none more intense than Rainbow Six Siege.  It’s 5-on-5 action with just one life per round, making sure you’re sweating bullets while firing them each session.  Every single match can play out differently, thanks to the destructible environments that could turn a seemingly safe room into an all-out war zone.  Matches are a mix of action-packed gunfire and stealthy silence, which is what makes Rainbow Six Siege stand out among the crowd.  Your team better be a well-oiled machine, because there’s no room for error here.
