Wildly popular vehicle soccer game “Rocket League” is getting a new paid DLC called “Revenge of the Battle-Cars” in October, developer and publisher Psyonix announced on Friday. It includes two new cars and a number of items -- but will it be worth buying?
“Rocket League: Revenge of the Battle-Cars” will retail for $3.99, which really isn’t much when you think about it. But what exactly do you get for that price?
“Revenge of the Battle-Cars” includes two classic Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars named Scarab and Zippy.
It also has 12 new decals (six for each car), three new paint types (toon glossy, toon matte and toon wood), two new wheels for Scarab and Zippy, two new rocket boosts called accelerato and battle-stars, four new toppers (cavalier, locomotive, pixelated shades and shark fin), two new antennas (retro balls) and five new trophies.
For “Rocket League” fans -- particularly those who loved playing the first title “Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars,” which was released in 2008 -- this new DLC is definitely worth the small price.
If you haven’t yet played “Rocket League” it’s about time you checked it out, especially since the game is huge in eSports. It is currently available for PS4, PC and Mac and costs $19.99 in the Steam store.
In addition to the paid content Psyonix is also releasing some free stuff -- two new variations of their existing arenas Urban Station (Night) and Utopia Coliseum (Dusk).
“These variants are the last ‘regulation-style’ maps you’ll see for a while,” says Psyonix in the announcement. “Our next few arenas after that will focus on more ‘unusual’ layouts and settings (more on those later this year).”
Psyonix is also releasing new music, Community and Country flags as well as updates and optimizations alongside the “Revenge of the Battle-Cars” DLC.
No word yet on a specific release date, but you can be sure that an announcement will be made soon.
