Popular car soccer game "Rocket League" will receive an update for the PS4 Pro on Feb. 21. This has already been confirmed by game developer Psyonix.

"Rocket League" will soon receive a PS4 Pro update, which will boost the performance of the game to 4K resolution. Furthermore, the title will be enhanced with the PS4 version as it will be out in 1080p.

For all platforms, the title will have a 60 fps run, which will be seen in both one-player and two-player modes. This is aside from the spit-screen feature that the update will apply to all PS4 consoles. For players who are enjoying three-player and four-player mode, the 60 fps mark can still be seen in several arenas, based on what PS4 model a player is using.

The most talked about feature of the "Rocket League" update is the arrival of Hot Wheels. Also set on Feb. 21, Psyonix converted two of the most iconic models, Bone Shaker and Twin Mill III, into Battle Cars.

However, the Hot Wheels feature will be out separately and will come with a price. There are free Hot Wheels-themed after-match items like Antennas and Toppers, but they will be exclusively available with six decals and wheels priced at $1.99.

Other updates include a new fan-voted "Player's Choice" Crate filled with some of the community's favorite items, PS4-specific technical improvements and multiple performance optimizations and bug fixes.

Psyonic stated that there will be new content to be released for "Rocket League" this year so expect more announcements soon.

Meanwhile, "Rocket League" is ready to download for Xbox One. Players of the console should take this opportunity as the game will be free for a limited time. In fact, the offer is set to end at 11:59 p.m. PT on Feb. 20.

Players who want to continue playing the game after the trial can purchase it for $14.99 during the weekend. This is 25 percent off from the original price.
