One of the world's biggest movie franchises and one of the world's biggest games, a match made in heaven.
Rocket League is a free-to-play video game that's like soccer, but with rocket cars. As you can imagine, it gets pretty intense, with over 1 million players playing simultaneously on one of its biggest days last September.
The game has done a bunch of crossover events to keep its list of cars fresh including the DeLorean from Back To The Future, the Warthog from Halo, a Gears of War vehicle and for The Fate of the Furious, Dominic's Ice Charger and Brian's Nissan GT-R Skyline. The latest brings back those two Fast and Furious cars, and adds the new rocket Fiero from the Fast 9 trailer we've all watched numerous times. Rocket League, rocket-powered Pontiac Fiero? It makes perfect sense.
Normally for these sorts of upgrades you have to buy a season pass, but it looks like these three will be available a la cart or in a bundle. It's also a boon for new players, who weren't around to grab the Ice Charger and R34 around the time of The Fate of the Furious.
Each vehicle will come with its own set of decals. The Fiero will get flames, stripes, lightning and wings. The Charger comes with flames, rally, wheelman and other stickers. The Skyline has decals called 2Cool, 2Bold, 2Tuff, Clean Cut and a few more.
The three-car bundle, plus decals pulled straight from the movies, will cost 2,400 in-game credits. According to the Rocket League home page, 500 credits cost $5, 1,100 cost $10 and 3,000 will set you back $25. That means you can buy the pack and have 600 left, if you want all three cars and agree to fork over the money.
The three cars will also be offered individually for 1,000 credits a piece. Or you can just purchase the decals for 300 credits. Two new player anthems will also be offered on June 17, when the pack goes live. Furiosa by Anitta will be available initially. Another anthem will come later.
Additionally, RL is hosting a tournament to coincide with the release. Each crew will compete in the Fast & Furious: Rocket League Rumble tournament featuring a single-elimination bracket with 4v4 matches. Tune in live on Twitch on June 19 at 11 am PDT to watch.
Fast 9 comes out June 25 in North America.
