A Tesla fan has started a petition to get the Cybertruck into Rocket League, because of course they did.
We gotta admit, this isn’t really the way we figured the 20-teens would end. Nuclear apocalypse? Sure. Civil unrest and global upheaval? Absolutely. But a boxy-lookin’ electric pickup from an eccentric billionaire? Didn’t see it coming.
And yet, here we are. The Tesla Cybertruck is now a thing that cannot be ignored. Memes surrounding the electric pickup that looks like it belongs in a bad ‘90s GTA clone have popped up everywhere, and even the world of gaming isn’t safe from the onslaught.
One Tesla fan has even started a petition to get the Cybertruck added to the world’s largest car-based video game, Rocket League.
Nikki Luzader started the petition on Saturday, November 30th, and less than 24-hours later it’s already surpassed 1,500 signatures.
"Our great and generous Elon Musk has bestowed upon us a revolutionary vehicle whose beauty, power, and elegance is unsurpassed,” reads the petition. “Now my fellow gamers, we must fight for what is most undoubtedly meant for us to play with, because let's face it, most of us will never be able to afford one.”
Nikki isn’t wrong - even the base-model Cybertruck is expected to start at $40,000, while more expensive versions with better range and performance will cost well over $70,000. But a Rocket League DLC pack would be vastly less expensive. At least, we hope it would be.
“Please sign this petition and fight to put it in the hands of the man with the plan himself. He will do it for us. He will do it for the memes."
Speaking of memes, we’ve already seen the Cybertruck added to GTA V in two mods with varying success, and have heard reports of the Cybertruck being added to Cyberpunk 2077. That would make the Cybertruck over 50 years old as it’s expected to arrive in the real world in 2021. Maybe it’d be considered a classic car by 2077?
