Psyonix and Hot Wheels team up for new Rocket League DLC
Psyonix, independent video game developer and publisher, and Hot Wheels, announced today an upcoming update to Rocket League that will add brand new Hot Wheels content in-game.
Launching on February 21, the update will feature two DLC cars, the Twin Mill III and Bone Shaker, both best-sellers of the Hot Wheels toy lineup. Each DLC car will be sold separately for USD $1.99 (or regional equivalent) and come with six Decals and an exclusive set of Wheels. The update will also add FREE Hot Wheels content for all players including a “Hot Wheels” Antenna and Topper, “Treasure Hunt” Flag, and “Shark Bite” Topper.
Check out the Trailer:
“You won’t have to pay for all of Rocket League’s Hot Wheels content, either. In addition to the two paid DLC sets, all users will be able to earn Hot Wheels-branded car toppers and antennas free-of-charge. These special items will be doled out randomly after Rocket League matches.
Hot Wheels isn’t the only major brand that’s come to Rocket League since the game’s debut, of course. Last year, the Batmobile joined Rocket League as a special promotional item tied to the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while basketball fans can adorn their Battle-Cars with their favorite teams’ logos by purchasing Rocket League’s NBA flag pack.
This isn’t the video game debut for either the Bone Shaker or the Twin Mill III, either. Both Hot Wheels cars appear in the web-based racing game Hot Wheels Track Attack, while the Bone Shaker is one of seven Hot Wheels vehicles included in Forza Motorsport 6’s Hot Wheels Car Pack.
Hot Wheels, one of the oldest and most enduring toy brands in America, was originally launched in 1968 as a faster-paced and more exciting alternative to the classic Matchbox line of miniature cars. By contrast, Rocket League is a much newer product—the game came out in July, 2015—but it’s proved remarkably popular, with over 25 million registered players, a growing esports scene, and a thriving community that makes it one of the best games on consoles or PCs.”
