Halo Warthog in actie op Rocket League screenshots

Rocket League verschijnt volgende week op de Xbox One en bezitters van Microsofts console worden beloond voor hun geduld. De Xbox One-versie wordt namelijk geleverd met flink wat exclusieve content, waaronder de Halo Warthog-auto!

Onderstaande screenshots tonen zowel de rode als de blauwe versie van de auto. Naar verwachting zul je straks uit nog veel meer verschillende soorten kleuren en designs kunnen kiezen. De Xbox One-versie wordt tevens geleverd met de Armadillo-auto uit Gears of War en toppers die geïnspireerd zijn door Sunset Overdrive.

343 Industries deelde tevens een (fictieve) e-mail die Warthog-fabrikant AMG Transport Dynamics stuurde naar zijn medewerkers. De brief is minstens een glimlach waard en hieronder te lezen.


TO: E. Burch, Motorsport Manager, AMG Transport Dynamics

FROM: T. Jenkins, Special Projects Director, AMG Transport Dynamics



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?
