'Psyonix,' the San Diego-based game developer, announced the 'Nissan X Rocket League' collaboration with the Japan-based automaker. As part of this collaboration, the 2023 Nissan Z sports car will make an appearance in Rocket League, the fantasy soccer game where players control rocket-powered vehicles.
In addition to the vehicle itself, the companies have also released a custom set of wheels, a unique engine audio that mimics the real-life sound of the 2023 Nissan Z, and a special Nissan x FaZe Clan decal to place on any vehicle. This decal signifies the partnership between Nissan and the esports organization FaZe Clan.
The Nissan Z bundle will be available from May 26th to June 7th in the Rocket League store at a price of 1,100 Rocket League credits, which equates to approximately $9.99 USD.
