Rocket League getting Hot Wheels cars

Well, this just makes sense

Just a few days after developer Psyonix announced that the Battle-Cars of Rocket League will become real-life toys, some real-life toys — specifically Hot Wheels — will become Rocket League cars.

Mattel’s Hot Wheels are coming to Rocket League on Feb. 21. Two cars, the Twin Mill III and Bone Shaker, will be available as downloadable content for $1.99 each. Each Hot Wheels car will come with six decals and an exclusive set of wheels.

Psyonix will add some free Hot Wheels content for all players on Feb. 21: a “Hot Wheels” antenna and topper, “Treasure Hunt” flag and “Shark Bite” topper.

While most of the Battle-Cars playable in Rocket League are original, developer Psyonix has flirted with licensed add-ons in the past, including the Batmobile from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future.

Check out Rocket League’s Hot Wheels cars in the trailer above and the gallery below for a closer look.
