Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars Now Available in Europe for the PlayStation®Network

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

El Segundo, Calif. - February 12, 2009 - Psyonix Studios announced today that Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars is now available across Europe for download on the PlayStation®Network on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

Battle-Cars features several 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. While in the air, cars can roll, flip, jump, dodge or spin in a freestyle fashion. In the team-based football 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. These abilities, combined with the players' own creativity and skill create a unique and thrilling experience every time.

The European release of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars will also include the recent US update that saw the addition of new features as well as a new Battle-Car arena.

Features included in recent update:

• New "Cosmic" arena*

• Improved performance in network games

• A server browser has been added during matchmaking

• Players can now view leaderboards during matchmaking

• News updates appear on the online page

• Meters added to evaluate players' connection speed

• Headsets can be plugged-in or swapped during gameplay

*At absolutely no cost to the player "Cosmic," the newly added arena, presents a brand-new challenge to Battle-Cars combatants by integrating quarter-pipe ramps that lead up to each of the goals. Gamers will be graced with the majestic view of deep-space as the arena orbits a beautiful yet mysterious uncharted planet. Like other Battle-Car arenas, "Cosmic" places the focus on teamwork and communication, but never lets fun fall in second place.

"We've really been looking forward to releasing Battle-Cars in Europe," said Dave Hagewood, Founder/Development Director of Psyonix Studios. "In addition, we have already begun planning for community-based events and challenges that will pit gamers against developers!"

Battle-Cars' 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 full featured in-game video editor, players 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™.

Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars is available now as a free trial featuring both offline and online gameplay with full version players. The trial version can be updated to the full version for only€9.99 (£7.99) on the PlayStation®Network.
