Rocket League's actual birthday falls on 7th July. It was this day two years ago when the game launched for PC and on PlayStation 4 via PS Plus, which kickstarted the game's success. More than 31m people now own a copy.

In related news, NVIDIA is currently offering a copy of Rocket League for free with the purchase of a GeForce GTX 1060 or 1050-based graphics card or PC.
