If you’ve ever wished you could go back in time to undo a boneheaded move in Rocket League, well — you still won’t have that option — but new downloadable content will make it easier to pretend that you can.
Developer Psyonix announced today that it is bringing the DeLorean Time Machine from the Back to the Future films to its car-soccer hit. Of course, you’ll have the option to download the game on October 21, 2015, which is the same day that Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future II. This add-on will cost $2 on PlayStation Network and Steam.
Check it out in action:
Add-on content is hugely important to what Psyonix is doing with Rocket League. The game debuted as a “free” download on PlayStation 4 as part of Sony’s PlayStation Plus program. While Rocket League is also a sensation on PC, where it sells for $20, it may make a significant portion of its revenue from back-end sales of content like DeLorean Time Machines.
Not only will this new DLC get you the DeLorean, but the car also comes with its famous fiery tire trail from when it hits 88 mph.
The Back to the Future Car Pack joins Rocket League’s Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC Pack, which will bring a ton of new cars and cosmetic upgrades.
