The idea of radio controlled cars playing soccer in a dome-shaped arena was pretty unique one when Rocket League launched back in 2015. It was only a matter of time before Psyonix, the team behind the ever-evolving game known for joining forces with various big brands, collaborated with toy makers Hot Wheels to make that feeling even more authentic.

Psyonix and Hot Wheels will be bringing a range of cars to the game as Hot Wheels Triple Threat DLC Pack to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic toy company. The bundle will include the Gazella GT, MR11, and Fast 4WD vehicles along with a range of unique decals for each of the three Battle-Cars. There will also be gorilla, snake, and spider toppers to customize the cars with.

The Hot Wheels Triple Threat DLC Pack will be available for $5.99, but there are also some free features available too including the Hot Wheels Rivals Arena which sports the brand’s logo on banners along the stands, along with images of the various animal-themed toppers. Surrounding the arena are iconic Hotwheels loops in orange and blue as well as vehicle launchers. To top it all off there will also be free 50th anniversary-themed customizable items available.

Rocket Lague is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch with the Hot Wheels Triple Threat DLC Pack launching on September 24 across all platforms.
