El Segundo, Calif. - October 9, 2008 - Psyonix Studios announced today that Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars is now available for download on the PlayStation®Network on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
SARPBC 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. While in the air, cars can roll, flip, jump, dodge or spin in a freestyle fashion. 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. These abilities, combined with the players' own creativity and skill create a unique and thrilling experience every time.
"We're so excited that gamers can finally enjoy the game as much as we do," said Dave Hagewood, Founder/Development Director of Psyonix Studios. "I can't wait to jump online and see all of the crazy replays!"
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 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™.
Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars is available now for $14.99. A free trial version of the game is also available on the PlayStation®Network.
