With the popular Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty‘s third season slated for a release date this summer, it looks as if the show’s creators have been working on a plethora of cross-promotional wares for video games to advertise the program’s next run of shows, with several titles such as Rocket League receiving content based on the animated series. Not only will Psyonix’s vehicular soccer video game be getting content based on the cartoon, but also the likes of Gang Beasts, Move or Die, and Steam VR Home have been tapped to get assets dedicated to the Adult Swim show as well.
For starters, Rocket League is set to receive free antennas based on Rick, Morty, the floating head Cromulon, Mr. Meeseeks, and the show’s most lovable scamp, Mr. Poopy Butthole. These materials will be available starting on July 5, 2017, along with a special rocket boost and some wheels inspired by the intergalactic portal from the cartoon that can be obtained through different loot drops.
As far as the multiplayer favorite games Move or Die and Gang Beasts are concerned, both will feature cameos from the cast of Rick and Morty by way of free skins. As of now, the skins for Move or Die are currently available with Rick, Morty, Mr. Meeseeks, Krombopulous Michael, and Birdperson being offered, while the skins for Gang Beasts have yet to make their way into the game and lack a date of availability.
Finally, Steam VR Home will also be giving fans of Rick and Morty a free piece of content, with a Mr. Meeseeks character available to add to the game’s virtual residence. Of course, should one want to experience the show’s characters in virtual reality, they can also do so by way of Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, which had its release date earlier this year on marijuana enthusiasts’ favorite holiday – 4/20.
All things considered, it looks like Rick and Morty is set to be highly visible this summer with plenty of marketing being done for the show’s next season. With any luck, fans will not only enjoy all of the free wares being given in the aforementioned games, but also the cartoon’s creators will announce Season 3’s start date soon.
For those who own Rocket League, Move or Die, Gang Beasts, and Steam VR Home, be on the lookout for all of the Rick and Morty content out in the wild.
