Psyonix has now announced that a new line of Rocket League toys will come out this Spring. Eight battle car models based on the game’s automobile characters will hit the stores along with four new limited-edition vehicles.
Rocket League is a Steam-powered video game developed by Psyonix for PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4. It centers on ‘soccer’ games in which players control racing cars instead of human figures.
Rocket League is available on Steam for only $20 and currently holds a star rating of almost five with very positive recent and global reviews.
The game is very easy to install, requiring only a minimum 2GB of RAM, a 2.4 GHz Dual Core processor, and 5GB free storage to run smoothly.
Four new characters might be coming to Rocket League soon
Each one of the toys will come with an additional Rocket Ball the vehicles use in-game to score goals against opposing teams. The cars are mini ‘pull back’ racers similar to those made by companies like Hot Wheels.
The Rocket League lineup will include Octane, Masamune, Dominus, X-Devil, Hotshot, Grog, Backfire, Merc, and four never-seen-before racers that will probably come out in-game in the coming months.
Some of the toys will also code with a redeemable Steam code that unlocks an exclusive Rocket Trail and Wheel. The mini vehicles will enter the market thanks to a Psyonix partnership with Zag Toys.
The game reaches more than 25 million players
Last month, Psyonix announced that Rocket League had an approximate 26 million players registered worldwide. This number amounts to a billion matches since the game launched and 31 million exclusive Rumble matches.
50% of these games were competitive while 33% were casual. Also, Rocket League became the most downloaded game in 2016, according to Sony. RL also received a distinction as one of the best games of last year for the Xbox One.
