New York (CNN Business)When Electronic Arts debuted the "Rocket Arena" trailer in late June, people were quick to nickname the video game "Fortnite 2. "

"Rocket Arena," debuting July 14, is a new multi-player shooter game unrelated to the mega-popular "Fortnite" -- but many called out the art style, font and rapid-fire playing style as similar.

But I also think it's important for us to to say that we really believe that this is its own thing," said Jonas Norberg, executive producer at Final Strike Games, the indie studio behind "Rocket Arena," which will be available for Xbox, PlayStation 4 and PC with cross-platform play possible.

For one, "Rocket Arena" is not battle royale like "Fortnite. " In Fortnite, teams must survive to the end in a shrinking map, but in "Rocket Arena" there are five game modes, including Rocketball — in which players shoot rockets at each other while attempting to score in a soccer game — and Mega Rocket, in which players must fight to secure giant rockets and capture them before the other team does.
