One annoying part of collector’s editions and new releases of games is that it tends to leave a lot of people out of some awesome content. I mean, doesn’t everyone want a statue of Ryu? With Rocket League’s physical release, four cars came with the purchase. Now, players have the option to purchase the cars separate from buying the physical release version.
The Neo Tokyo-inspired, “Esper” and “Masamune,” and classic Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Car vehicles, “Marauder” and “Aftershock” were offered with the physical release, but they can now also be purchased for $1.99 each. Each is available on all systems: Xbox One, PS4, and PC, so check them out and see if they’re worth the purchase for you.
You might be able to also grab them in random boxes, which have been found in some of the code for Rocket League. There’s no word on when those will be implemented into the game, but Psyonix states that the boxes will be used to unlock cosmetic items only, and that purchasing them or not won’t affect how your car handles or how you play the game. Psyonix plans on using the money to fund tournaments for Rocket League, which seems harmless enough.
