Rocket League brought automotive soccer into the homes of countless gamers and it’s about to make the jump into real-life.
As part of a partnership with Hot Wheels, the two companies will release the Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals set which includes two remote-controlled cars, a ball and a custom mat that has been designed to mimic the playing field of the popular video game.
Both of the cars are equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and this will allow them to be driven from your smartphone or tablet. Rocket League’s developer, Psyonix, also says the cars and ball will be charged via a “large boost pad station” and there will be an LCD scoreboard as well as speaker that announces goals.
The set will debut at Toy Fair 2018 this weekend and is scheduled to hit shelves in the United States this holiday season. The set will cost $179.99 and include codes that can be redeemed for unique in-game items.
While the set will cost more than similar products such as the Anki Overdrive Starter Kit, the inclusion of Rocket League gameplay could make it a tad more interesting.
As The Verge notes, this isn’t the first time Hot Wheels and Rocket League have teamed up. Last year, the two companies added iconic Hot Wheels vehicles such as Bone Shaker and Twin Mill III into the video game.
