Rocket Arena Kicks Off Season Two Starting Today

Electronic Arts and Final Strike Games have officially launched Season 2 of Rocket Arena today, adding a ton of content to the game. The update has added a new hero, limited-time events, challenges, rewards, and a new PvE mode. That's a ton of content for the game, being thrown into the mix for free, as it will radically change the way you approach different aspects and modes. Obviously, the biggest addition to the game is Leef, a new character that will have a lot of people scratching their heads as they see the furry rident hero jump into the mix along with his tiny sidekick Flitt. You can read the full details of what is in Season Two here, as we have the shorthand list of everything that's been added below before you start playing.
