So if Rocket League isn’t on mobile why am I talking about this here? Because those little RC cars will be controlled via Bluetooth using your smartphone or tablet. The set will include a little charging base for charging each vehicle as well as a ball equipped with IR sensors so it can keep track of the score whenever it’s knocked into one of the goals. Honestly I just want the cars to drive around with using my iPhone, but mimicking the arena of Rocket League is pretty cool too. It’s not going to Rocket League Crates come cheap though, as the set, which is officially called the Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals Set, will cost $179.99 when it arrives this holiday season. In addition, the set will include codes for downloading special in-game items in Rocket League, so that’s some added value I guess?
Recently, Psyonix announced that the non-standard maps in Rocket League - Wasteland and Starbase ARC - will be removed from ranked play with the game’s autumn update, which lands on September 28th.With a move like this, Psyonix are looking to make Rocket League analogous to traditional sports. Your ability in the game all comes down to your dexterous capabilities - how well you can control the car and use it to manipulate the ball in play.
