Rocket League and Star Wars fans are in for a treat this May 4th. Psyonix has announced that Star Wars content will be added to their popular free-to-play game on the aforementioned themed day. This marks the first time that Rocket League Star Wars content has been featured in-game.
Iconic droids R2-D2, C-3PO, BB-8, and K-2SO will all be available. They will be live in the Rocket League Item Shop between May 4 and May 16. A variety of different options are available to buy and can be viewed below.
These are the Droids you’re looking for
- Droid Bundle – This bundle features a Decal for the Fennec (C-3PO), Octane (R2-D2), Dominus (K-2SO), and Takumi (BB-8) cars. Four Wheels (C-3PO, R2-D2, K-2SO, and BB-8) are also included, along with two Toppers (R2-D2 and BB-8). There is also the R2-D2 Player Anthem (that can also be bought separately). Finally, the “Droid” Player Title will also be included. All this is available for 2200 Credits. Another bundle is also available for players that don’t own the associated cars. This includes the droid content and painted versions of the cars.
- Individual Droid Packs – Individually, the BB-8 Pack and R2-D2 pack will be priced at 800 credits separately. Each droid pack includes a Decal, Wheels, and Topper. The C-3PO Pack and K-2SO Pack (Decal and Wheels) will be priced at a slightly lower price, at just 500 credits individually. Each of these sets includes a Decal and Wheels.
- Free Star Wars Content – Players who want some free content will also be rewarded. The “Rust Bucket” Player Title and STAR WARS R2-D2 (Twin Suns) Player Banner will be claimable for free in the Item Shop.
This content pack also follows on from recent collaborations with the likes of AC Milan and Bugatti. Horror legends such as Billy The Puppet and Chucky have been featured in the past as well. Psyonix and Rocket League both have a long history of themed content packs. I guess it was only a matter of time before Rocket League Star Wars-themed content would be made available.
