October 21 is a significant date for all Back to the Future fans, and we’re all anticipating our consumer hoverboards and 3D holographic sharks.
The surprisingly awesome racing-soccer game Rocket League though is celebrating the date in an entirely different manner. Developer Psyonix has just announced that it will be releasing a special Back to the Future Car Pack on the very date Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future Part II.
The Back to the Future Car Pack will feature the DeLorean Time Machine with a Burnt Rubber Rocket Trail.
The car pack will be available for PC and PlayStation 4 for $1.99. Developer Psyonix admitted that they always the DeLorean to be a part of their popular game.
“Truth be told, we used to fantasize and joke about having the DeLorean Time Machine in our game months before it even came out. 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!
Hopefully you’ll never forget your time with the DeLorean Time Machine either, as we’ve worked meticulously to recreate its look, feel, and folding jet-wheels just as they appeared in the original motion picture trilogy. Best of all, it’s a heck of a lot of fun to play with — and comes complete with its signature “Burnt Rubber” Rocket Trail to boot!”
