Rocket League is pretty amazing, but combined with Hot Wheels, it's a whole new level of awesome.
Psyonix and Hot Wheels have revealed that they are collaborating on the Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals Set. Due for release this fall, the set contains bluetooth-connected Octane and Dominus Battle-Cars that you can control using your smartphone or tablet.
But that's not all - the pack will also include new Hot Wheels DLC for use within the game itself.
Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Publishing at Psyonix, had this to say about the news:
We're thrilled to further our partnership with Hot Wheels and bring Rocket League to life with this upcoming toy set. 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.
Chris Down, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Hot Wheels, added:
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. 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.More details will be coming later this year.
Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to clear some space in our bedrooms for this awesome set.
That's actually kinda neat. I'd probably be into it when I was a kid.
Are they going to provide it separately?

I swore I wouldn't buy any more DLC for this game...
I think I fall into the target audience of "older gamers who...played with Hot Wheels as a kid." I'm not getting this, but I have to admit, that's freaking awesome.
This is actually pretty cool, kids will have a blast with it. I loved Hot Wheels when I was younger and if this existed back then my parents wouldn't hear the end of it about this set until I got it XD
After playing with Hot Wheels for so many years as a kid, seeing all this new high-tech Hot Wheels stuff makes me feel old in the best way possible.
I picked up this game because of all the hype around it. Played it for a bit but couldn't get into it. Maybe because none of my friends were playing it. I mean it seems alright, but pretty repetitive.
