Rocket League is on a league of its own with tens of millions of players actively playing the simulation-cum-mini soccer game.

In this post, we’ll explain to you what really are these Workshop Maps and how you can use them inside the Rocket League on your system.

What are Workshop Maps in Rocket League?
Workshops or Workshop Maps are one of the easiest ways to customize playable content in the Rocket League. Workshop Maps were introduced in 2016 for the sole purpose of letting users design and play custom-designed maps of their choice. These maps not only mean fun but can also be used to focus on skill development on your own without competing in a multiplayer game.
Most of the custom maps available for download are single-player only and don’t need you to use third-party tools like Rocket Launcher, which is often installed for those who wish to play multiplayer games with modded arenas. Workshop maps can thus help you build your knowledge of those maps features in competitive Rocket League matches.
