Rocket League Becomes Real with New Hot Wheels Set
Rocket League is definitely one of the more unrealistic games out there. With fast moving cars that can fly through the air, striking a ball into the net and watching as it explodes in celebratory glee. Now that experience can become just a bit closer to reality with a new Hot Wheels set that delivers not only the cars, but also the field and other aspects of the game. Don’t expect the rockets and explosions though, we’re still dealing with toys.
“The Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals Set brings some of your favorite Battle-Cars to life,” reads the announcement from Psyonix. “The large set comes with ‘Octane’ and ‘Dominus’ remote-controlled cars, a Rocket League ball, and a custom field mat that looks like it’s straight out of the video game. Both Battle-Cars are controlled via Bluetooth from your smartphone or tablet with no extra controllers to worry about. The vehicles and ball are charged via a large boost pad station and the set’s scoreboard will track any shots that go through the goal with sounds!”
Each copy of the Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals Set will come with a code you can redeem in your copy of the game. These will give you unique cosmetic items to deck out your car. The whole set will cost $179.99 and will be shown off next week at Toy Fair 2018.
The announcement also mentions some new, upcoming Hot Wheels DLC that will hit Rocket League, so watch for news on that soon.
