Lamborghini Huracan STO makes digital (gaming) debut
You can now pick it for the Rocket League!
I was incredibly excited to find out that the Huracan STO, the latest V10 Lamborghini unveiled at this week's Shanghai Auto Show, was going to be included in Rocket League. And I was also a bit embarrassed because I've got to admit I've no idea what the Rocket League actually is. As it turns out, it is an award-winning simulation game that combines two things that most people love: cars and football. Or soccer, as they call it in the US of A.
From today through April 27, players will be able to pick the STO, available with the Blu Laufey+Arancio California livery, to compete in the Battle of the Bulls during the Rocket League Championship Series X Lamborghini Open.
“The debut of Huracan STO in the world of Rocket League is a further step in the digital strategy of Lamborghini, which entered eSports in 2020 with its own one-make championship," said Lambo CEO Stephan Winkelmann. "Gaming and simulation are phenomena of particular interest to the #automotive industry, important for engaging the new generations and making our cars even more popular with young people".
“Battle of the Bulls” consists in a five-match series from April 23 through April 25, and fans can follow the action live on Twitch. The best gamers will then compete in a series of one-on-one matches, and each winner will receive a prize of $5,000.
