Hot Wheels is teaming up with developer Psyonix to bring out a new Rocket League toy set this fall.
Called the Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals Set, it will feature bluetooth-enabled Octane and Dominus cars players can control with smart devices. The set also features an arena complete with LCD scoreboards, and a ball with an IR device embedded to keep track of the score.
Additional details, and a release date, will be announced later this year. Check out the preview art below:
In addition, the set will include Hot Wheels in-game DLC for Rocket League, and according to Psyonix Vice President of Publishing, Jeremy Dunham, the collaboration won’t stop there.
“That’s just the beginning of what we have planned,” Dunham said, “You can expect to see some really, really cool things come out of our new Hot Wheels alliance.”
