Rocket League developer Psyonix has just announced a partnership that Ford which will bring two of its iconic Mustang models to the vehicle-based sports game across Switch, PC, PlayStation and Xbox formats.
The two selected cars have hugely-contrasting attributes. The first – the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R – is a gas-guzzling V8 muscle car from the Mustang’s 1960s heyday, while the second car – the Ford Mustang Mach-E – is Ford’s take on the growing electric SUV market of today. Don’t be fooled by its zero emissions though, as it can do 0-62mpg in 3.7s compared to the 350bhp GT350’s 5.5s.
The tie-in comes as Ford also announced their title sponsorship of the Rocket League Championship Series Fall Major, scheduled between the 8th and 12th December in Sweden. Following this, the Ford + Rocket League Freestyle Invitational takes place on the 15th and 16th December, with the winner receiving a brand-new Ford Mustang Mach-E.
Both cars will be available in-game between the 9th and 22nd December, costing 1100 credits (£7.50/$9.99) each – or 2000 credits if both are purchased at the same time.
This isn’t the first time Rocket League has received real-life car content, with both BMW and Ford previously featuring their vehicles. Motorsport has had a large presence too, with F1 and NASCAR also making an appearance.
