by Rainier on May 1, 2023 @ 10:11 a.m. PDT

Rocket League is a fast-paced action-sports game featuring amazing physics, crazy aerial action, and compelling multiplayer combat.

The sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League expands on its successful pedigree with improved graphics and physics systems, a robust new single-player campaign, considerable customization options, and a fully-charged multiplayer game geared for a next-generation action-sports experience.

Rocket League is a futuristic action-sports game where players pilot rocket-powered vehicles in an enhanced version of soccer by driving their vehicles into the ball and other players in a variety of arenas. Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions between cars and the ball, where mass and momentum determine how hard balls and cars hit each other, creating a unique and visceral playing experience.

Psyonix announced that Star Wars content will be coming to Rocket League on May 4th for the first time!

Content themed after iconic droids BB-8, C-3PO, K-2SO, and R2-D2 will be available in the Rocket League Item Shop from May 4 until May 16.


For decades, the droids of Star Wars™ have warmed our hearts with their friendly beeps, lovable banter, and memorable sounds. Now, Items inspired by R2-D2, C-3PO, BB-8, and K-2SO are coming to Rocket League! So, what's the cargo? Droid Packs filled with Decals, Wheels, and animated Toppers based on our beloved mechanical pals. 

The shipment of STAR WARS Droid Packs will arrive on May 4!


Liberator of planets, saver of princesses, prison break expert, and forever friend. Who knew a little R2 unit could do so much! With the R2-D2 Pack, you’ll be ready to save the Arena from almost anything. Alongside the R2-D2 Octane Decal and matching Wheels, the animated R2-D2 Topper will swivel and flash as you guide your team to victory.

The tall to R2’s small, C-3PO is fluent in over 6 million forms of communication. Goodness! The C-3PO Pack itself comes with a C-3PO Fennec Decal and Wheels inspired by our favorite protocol droid. This is human/cyborg relations at its peak.

If you prefer something new-school, get the Resistance rolling with the BB-8 Pack! These astromech droid–inspired Items will look great while you travel the far edges of the Arena in search of Boost. Like the R2-D2 Pack, you’ll get an animated Topper, so it’ll always feel like Poe’s best buddy has your back. A BB-8 Takumi Decal and matching Wheels bring the look full circle.

With the K-2SO Pack, you’ll always have your team’s back in a dangerous match! The security droid’s Imperial paint job is on full display with this K-2SO Dominus Decal and Wheels set. Please do not resist!

Want a taste of the droid life? Players will also be able to get the FREE “Rust Bucket” Player Title and STAR WARS R2-D2 (Twin Suns) Player Banner in the Item Shop starting May 4—no galactic credits required.
