Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars Receives Limited Time Price Cut to $4.99

October 15, 2009 - San Diego, CA - Independent videogame developer, Psyonix, Inc. announced today that their flagship, self-published title, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars (SARPBC) will be receiving a limited time price cut to $4.99 in celebration of October marking the title's first Birthday. The sale will run from October 15, 2009 through October 29, 2009 and is available for download on the PlayStation®Network on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

In addition to twenty five single-player mini-games, which also serve as a platform for users to learn the ins and outs of the game, SARPBC shipped with three Battle-Car arenas and two skins for each of the seven different battle-cars. For the last year, Psyonix has stood by their title and has nearly doubled the content by delivering constant gameplay-enhancing updates and free downloadable content in the form of three new arenas and 14 additional battle-car skins.

"October marks the one-year launch anniversary of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars -- our first self-published title -- and we feel like having a party," said Dave Hagewood, Director of Development for Psyonix. "So we decided to give back to PlayStation 3 owners by giving those who have been missing out on the fun some added incentive to join the Battle-Cars community."

About Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars

Battle-Cars features unique rocket-powered cars with incredible physics-based maneuverability, including the ability to rocket into the air or accelerate at supersonic speeds on the ground by racing over boost strips, obtaining boost capsules or by performing a rapid succession of acrobatic flips. In the team-based soccer game, players maneuver their vehicles to perform breathtaking saves, awe-inspiring shots and of course achieve supersonic speeds that literally turn your opponents into scrap metal.

Wide-ranging community involvement is supported through team and league play, as well as extensive and thorough statistical tracking, rankings and rewards for individuals and teams, including support for PlayStation 3 system trophies. The game features three single player modes as well as team and league matches and scrimmage matches online. Using the fully featured in-game video editor, players will have the ability to save, upload and share their amazing triumphs and hysterical battle-car antics to their PlayStation 3 system harddrive or upload clips directly to YouTube.
