Rocket League is for everyone, that’s just a fact, and Psyonix is joining this year’s Pride Month celebrations with a free cosmetics bundle that everyone can pick up from the in-game store from June 15 to July 12. The free Shine Through Bundle includes two on-car cosmetics – the Sequin Paint Finish and Tiara Multichrome Topper – alongside four player anthems featuring songs from modern drag icons. Yes, all four of them are certified bangers.
The four songs players will be able to enjoy in Rocket League are “Hello, Hello” from Trixie Mattel, “I Adore U” from Adore Delano, “Rise Like a Phoenix” from Conchita Wurst, and “Lover Boy” from Todrick Hall.
We all know Trixie Mattel isn’t one to mince their words, and here’s what they had to say about their track featuring in the free Shine Through Bundle: “ As a big gamer myself, I was gagged when I found out “Hello Hello” was going to be in Rocket League. Be gay, play video games and listen to my music all PRIDE month!”
Discussing the importance of drag and the music featured, Rocket League’s announcement explains that “drag has been an important, inclusive method of self-expression during Pride going back to the event’s formative years. The art form has grown through the decades, with many modern queens reaching pop-star-level popularity.” And, as for the four drag queens featured in this Rocket League bundle, it’s safe to say that they have pop-star-level talent as well!
If you’re wondering where you know the names above, we have you covered. Trixie Mattel needs no introduction, but you’ll recognise her from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Seven and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season Three among a whole host of other appearances. Adore Delano was a contestant on American Idol Season Seven and then joined the Drag Race for Season Six. Conchita Wurst famously won 2014’s Eurovision Song Contest (with the song included) and Todrick Hall is another artist who found success following an appearance on American Idol.
You’ll be pleased to know that Rocket League isn’t the only game celebrating Pride Month this year, too. You can get your hands on free Valorant items, pick up emotes with League of Legends’ Pride Month, and pick up more in-game cosmetics from games like Apex Legends.
