A very recognisable vehicle will arrive in Rocket League on October 21, a date that is also very important to fans of the Back to the Future 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,” Rocket League developer Psyonix’s VP of marketing jeremy Dunham enthused on the PlayStation Blog.
“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!”
Honestly, look at that trailer. It’s perfect. The wheels pivot up when you jump and it leaves the fire trail behind you when you boost. Best of all, it’ll run you a low, low US$1.99 when it releases as the Back to the Future Car Pack. No details as yet whether you get any other cosmetics in that kit.
Rocket League is out now on PS4 and PC via Steam.
