Ahead of Rocket League's release on Xbox One next week, Psyonix has released some new images of the Halo Warthog car that will show up exclusively in the Xbox version of the soccer-with-cars game.
Posted on Halo Waypoint, the images (embedded above) show off red and blue versions of the vehicle, though you will presumably be able to tweak the colors and designs further to your liking.
Rocket League's Xbox One edition will also come with the Armadillo car from Gears of War. Additionally, toppers inspired by Xbox One-exclusive Sunset Overdrive will be available.
In another post, 343 shared a correspondence between fictional Warthog manufacturer AMG Transport Dynamics employees discussing the modified version of the Warthog in Rocket League. It's pretty funny. You can read the full letter below.
TO: E. Burch, Motorsport Manager, AMG Transport Dynamics
FROM: T. Jenkins, Special Projects Director, AMG Transport Dynamics
RE: Project: HOGSTICKER
MARKETING DECK PROPOSAL:
The motorsport division of AMG Transport Dynamics has a time-honored tradition for flexing their engineering muscle through competition, whether it be with their 24 Hours of Quezon-winning prototypes or their dynamic and durable RallyHog models. One of their most intriguing projects is a highly modified M12 Warthog called Project: HOGSTICKER, which features a number of exotic composites to reduce weight and the enclosed-cockpit monocoque from the M12 GT for increased structural rigidity.
The most prominent feature on the peculiar new vehicle is certainly the pair of experimental – and visually unmistakable – blamite-afterburners that provide insane levels of increased thrust on demand. Lovingly dubbed the “Needlehog” among crew and engineers around the paddock, Project: HOGSTICKER represents a bold and exciting new chapter in the Warthog’s already storied history!
POTENTIAL SPONSORS: Fronk's Formed Fish, BLAST Energy Drink, Club Errera
VERDICT: [FUNDING DENIED; Project fits no known series homologation]
ADDITIONAL NOTES: Erik, this is cute, but no. Where in Sam Hill would something like this even compete?! I’ve supported plenty of your more… unconventional ideas before, but “blamite afterburners?” That’s over the top even for you. Let's maybe quit the daydreaming and turn our focus back to [REDACTED], shall we?
Rocket League launches on Xbox One on February 17.
