Rocket League and Ford, studio Psyonix and Ford Motor Company are collaborating to bring one of the industry’s leading cars into the game along with sponsored esports events. Players will be able to purchase a Ford F-150 RLE package from the in-game store from Saturday, February 20 through Sunday, February 28 for 1,500 credits (approximately $ 15).
The package includes a Ford F-150 RLE, Standard, and Special Edition Ford F-150 RLE Wheels, Ford F-150 RLE Boost, Ford F-150 RLE Engine Audio, Ford F-150 Player Banner and Chief Decal. Beauty items can only be equipped on a Ford F-150 RLE, while other cosmetic items IP licensed cannot be equipped for the vehicle.
Ford will also sponsor all upcoming RLCS X Winter Majors, including the major South American Regional Championships on February 13 and 14, and create a Ford + Rocket League Freestyle Invitational event.
The event will see “eight top Rocket League players compete for a real 2021 Ford F-150. The event will take place on February 24 and February 28 before the North American Grand Finals and can be watched on Twitch.”
Rocket League has partnered with other companies for limited-time events since the start of the year with X Games last month and NFL’s Super Bowl LV last week.
