Psyonix announced that they would be bringing in the popular action-racing franchise to Rocket League. The developer revealed the upcoming The Fate of the Furious DLC for the game that is expected to arrive next week. The new content will feature the Ice Charger, the Dodge Charger owned by Dominic Toretto in the upcoming Fast and Furious 8 film.
According to Polygon, it will be available on April 4 as Rocket League's newest downloadable content. Psyonix mentioned that the vehicle would be sold as a premium Battle-Car tagged with a price of $1.99. It will arrive with exclusive wheels and decals such as Clean Cut, Flames, Crazy Sandwich, Rally, Rakugaki, and CCCXL.
The upcoming Fast and Furious film will come ten days later on April 14. The Fate of the Furious is the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. Fans can clearly see the Ice Charger in action through the final trailer of the film. It was the vehicle that Dom used to jump over a submarine. The arrival of the muscle car in Rocket League shows a partnership between Psyonix, Universal Pictures and Dodge.
The report notes that the Ice Charger was not the first vehicle from an acclaimed film that has arrived in the game. A few months ago, Psyonix launched the Back to the Future DLC pack after the game's introduction in 2015. The expansion pack features Doc Brown's time-travelling vehicle called DeLorean. Additionally, the studio also added the Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from last year. Lastly, it is expected that more vehicles from several popular films will be featured in Rocket League soon.
Rocket League is a vehicular soccer game that was released in 2015 developed by Psyonix. It is available to play for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, MacOS and Linux. Meanwhile, Fate of the Furious will mark the start of the final three films in the Fast and Furious franchise before it officially ends, possibly in 2021.
