New DLC launching this month for the vehicle-powered soccer sim Rocket League will put players behind the wheel of Back to the Future‘s iconic flying DeLorean, developer Psyonix announced this week.
The upcoming Back to the Future Car Pack adds the DeLorean Time Machine as a playable Battle-Car, complete with folding jet-wheels and a “Burnt Rubber” rocket trail that emulates the time-travel effect seen in the Back to the Future film trilogy.
“Truth be told, we used to fantasize and joke about having the DeLorean Time Machine in our game months before it even came out,” Psyonix Vice President of Marketing Jeremy Dunham stated. “We were all such huge Back to the Future fans here at Psyonix, that it was one of the few ‘Holy Grails’ we had hoped for besides having a hit game. The fact that we’re getting both of those “best-case scenarios” in the same year is an amazing accomplishment for us, they’re things we’ll never forget!”
The Back to the Future Car Pack will launch as Rocket League‘s third DLC expansion, following up on this week’s debut of the Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC Pack. Buying this week’s pack unlocks two new vehicles – Scarab and Zippy – which were previously featured in Rocket League‘s predecessor Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars.
The Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC Pack, premiering October 13th, also bundles new decals, antenna toppers, rocket boosts, wheels, and paint types, along with new unlockable trophies on the PlayStation 4.
Psyonix notes that two new map variants will roll out alongside this week’s update: Urban Station (Night) and Utopia Coliseum (Dusk). The studio teases that upcoming arenas will “focus on more ‘unusual’ layouts and settings.”
The Back to the Future Car Pack will be priced at $2 when it launches on October 21st for the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of Rocket League.
