James Bond’s iconic Aston Martin DB5 is coming to Rocket League for a limited time


Would you pay $10 for the privilege of strapping rocket boosters to James Bond’s iconic Aston Martin DB5 vehicle and utilizing it to rating spectacular gravity-defying objectives with a large ball? Rocket League is formally making that doable from Thursday, July twenty ninth by August 4th.

Epic Video games developer Psyonix says it’s signed a multiyear cope with MGM and Aston Martin to convey 007 to the vehicular sporting recreation — beginning, after all, with the ‘60s basic made well-known by Goldfinger however nonetheless stealing scenes as just lately as Skyfall and the upcoming No Time to Die.

Will I purchase it, although? Nah — as a result of other than the teaser atop this submit, there doesn’t appear to be a lot Bond about Rocket League’s model aside from the DB5’s historic affiliation with the franchise. I wasn’t anticipating ejector seats, however Psyonix candidly tells me it received’t have any of the gadgety animations that may set Bond’s model aside. Turning the snazzy secret auto-rotating license plates into a easy door for the rocket engine? I suppose that’s one thing.

I’ll most likely save that cash towards Lego’s gadget-filled DB5 model, whereas I wax nostalgic over these photos I took of real Bond cars on the London Movie Museum. I captioned a few of these pics for Gizmodo in case you like, although my submit there has fairly a few extra embedded adverts than the final time I noticed it.

The Rocket League DB5 will price 1,100 credit, or roughly $10. It would include “007’s Aston Martin DB5 Paint End (which resembles the signature Silver Birch shade of the Aston Martin), Aston Martin DB5 Engine Audio, Aston Martin DB5 Wheels, and a Reel Life Decal,” in accordance to a press launch.
