Rocket League Car Toys – How they Associate with the Game
Being that these toys are connected to the popular Rocket League Video Game it’s no surprise that the pull-back toys are closely associated with the title. The toys come with codes to unlock Cold Fusion Rocket Boost and ZT-17 wheels. Purchasing a Rocket League car toy is the only way to unlock these downloadable items. Don’t worry, the codes work for all platforms.
The Rocket League video game has surpassed 30 million registered players. Because of the titles overwhelming success developers, Psyonix, is in no rush to push a Rocket League 2. They don’t want their community to feel like what they are playing will become irrelevant in as little as 12 months. The development teams wants to support their growing community rather than push for a next game too quickly. The next step for the team is to send out this toy line to push the success of the first title even farther.
