Psyonix and Hot Wheels have announced brand new Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals Set.  The set will feature bluetooth-connected Octane and Dominus Battle-Cars which players will be able to control with their own smart devices. It remains to be seen how the cars will handle aerials.

“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.”

The Hot Wheels Rocket League Rivals RC Set will include two smart device controlled cars, a game ball, charging base, and an arena that will require some assembly.

“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.”

Rocket League Hot Wheels DLC was a huge hit last year for Psyonix, and we are excited to see how this toy set will turn out. No word on price or release date for the Rocket League RC Toy Set or the upcoming Hot Wheels DLC.
