The Rocket League Hot Wheels DLC features, erm, Hot Wheels cars in Rocket League. Yeah, this wasn’t the most exciting press release we ever received.
Recently Psyonix, in conjunction with Zag Toys, revealed a range of pull-back Rocket League toy cars. Sure, you can’t actually play Rocket League with them in real life – these play more like Subbuteo than the real thing – but they’re still neat, and make perfect sense as a tie-in.
It’s no surprise then, that some toy cars have now made their way into the game.
The Rocket League Hot Wheels DLC brings two Hot Wheels cars – the Twin Mill III and Bone Shaker – into the game for you to play as. That’s it, really. It does cost $1.99, but also includes exclusive wheels and six decals. The trailer’s a nice cross-over between the real world play-sets and the game, though:
For those who don’t pay for the Rocket League Hot Wheels DLC, it will also usher in some free updates for all players. This will include an exclusive Hot Wheels antenna and topper, plus a treasure hunt flag and ‘shark bite’ topper. They are free, but you’ll only be able get your hands on them in random post-match drops, so nothing is guaranteed.
The Rocket League Hot Wheels DLC launches on all platforms and in all locations on February 21, 2017.
