Rocket League Launches Season 9 and Hot Wheels DLC

I’m going to be honest with you, I was certain that Hot Wheels and Rocket League would join forces more frequently. Still, the release of Rocket League Season 9 and new Hot Wheels-themed DLC means that the obvious combination is now officially a thing for the second year in a row.

The new Hot Wheels Triple Threat DLC pack will net buyers three unique Hot Wheels Battle Cars and three creature-themed toppers for $5.99 US. If you’d rather not spend money but still like Hot Wheels-related stuff, the update has also included a new Hot Wheels Arena and a variety of free customization items to earn.

Of course, there’s more than small metal toy cars being represented in the latest update. Season 9 has also kicked off in the vehicular footballer, bringing competitive versions of Rumble, Dropshot, Hoops and Snow Day as extra modes. Those who took part in Season 8 can also get their rewards with this update.

Finally, the patch brings volume four of the Rocket League x Monstercat musical playlist, new cosmetic rewards tied to the playlist, and several quality-of-life improvements. A full rundown of the changes can be found here.

Our Thoughts

Another new season in Rocket League and a lot of new ways to play this time around. We wish those participating in the competitive side of this game the best of luck. We also kind of hope that these competitive forms of other Rocket League match types will translate into their appearance in the title’s esports broadcasts.
