After Rocket League brought Hot Wheels to the game, people have been asking for a real world Rocket League set and now Psyonix and Hot Wheels are partnering up to bring to life.
Called the Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals Set. The set will feature bluetooth-connected Octane and Dominus Battle-Cars that players will control using smart devices, with more devices set to come as well.
“We're thrilled to further our partnership with Hot Wheels and bring Rocket League to life with this upcoming toy set," said Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Publishing at Psyonix. "But that's just the beginning of what we have planned. You can expect to see some really, really cool things come out of our new Hot Wheels alliance.”
“Hot Wheels’ partnership with Rocket League has given us the opportunity to reengage with older gamers who may have played with Hot Wheels as a kid,” said Chris Down, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Hot Wheels. “We know that Hot Wheels and Rocket League fans loved our digital DLC integration in 2017, and will be thrilled to take on the challenge with this new RC playset that merges physical and digital gaming.”
No details on when we can expect it to his Australian shores, but sometime in 2018 for sure.
