El Segundo, Calif. - October 3, 2008 - Psyonix Studios announced today that Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars has gone gold and will be released on October 9 for the PlayStationŽNetwork on the PLAYSTATIONŽ3 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 BattleBall Arena team-based soccer game, players maneuver their vehicles and line them up 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.
Players choose their avatar car and customize its paint style. 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 PLAYSTATIONŽ3 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 PLAYSTATIONŽ3 system harddrive or upload clips directly to YouTubeâ˘.
In addition to the full version of SARPBC, a trial version of the game will also be made available to the PlayStationŽNetwork on October 9.
