Psyonix, the development studio behind the physics-based "Rockets League," announced that the game will receive a new DLC next week.
Dubbed as the "Back to the Future" Car Pack, the upcoming content update features the DeLorean Time Machine featured in the iconic film series.
According the Jeremy Durnham, the vice president of marketing for the studio, the DLC will be officially released on October 21, the same date featured in 1989's "Back to the Future Part II" when Dr. Brown and Marty McFly travel to the future.
Through the DLC, players will be able to drive around in the DeLorean to participate in the soccer matches. Durnham noted that the car was closely designed after the real one in the film and even has folding jet-wheels. The virtual DeLorean also leaves its signature brunt rubber track wherever it goes.
According to the executive, creating the "Back to the Future" Car Pack for "Rocket League" is a huge honor for Psyonix.
"Truth be told, we used to fantasize and joke about having the DeLorean Time Machin in our game months before it even came out," he wrote in the PlayStation Blog. "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," he added.
Gamers will be able to get their hands on the "Back to the Future" Car Pack for $1.99 once it officially comes out next week.
But, before the DLC comes out, Psyonix will also release another content update titled "Revenge of the Battle-Cars" this week. For $3.99, this DLC features the two classic card bodies Zippy and Scarab, three additional paint types, two wheel skins, 12 car decals, two boosts, four toppers, two antennas, and five new trophies, according to Cinema Blend.
As noted by Psyonix, those who will purchase the "Revenge of the Battle-Cars" will be entitled to receive free Halloween-themed DLC which will be released starting on October 18.
These include the Calavera antenna, Candy Corn rocket trail, Carriage wheels, Fuzzy Brute antenna, Fuzzy Vampire antenna and Pumpkin topper.
"Rocket League" officially came out on July 7 and is available for the PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, OS X and Linux platforms.
