Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars features vehicles with incredible physics-based maneuverability, including boosters for launching high into the air or accelerating at break-neck speed on the ground. In the air, cars can roll, flip, jump, dodge or spin. In this team-based soccer-inspired game, the vehicles maneuver to perform breathtaking saves, awe-inspiring shots on goal, and gruesome demolishes of opponent cars. These abilities, combined with the players' own creativity, create a unique and thrilling experience every time.

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 PS3 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 PS3 harddrive or upload clips directly to YouTube.

Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars has received a five-dollar price break and is now available for download on the PlayStation Network on the PS3 at the steal-of-a-deal price of $9.99.

In addition to receiving a generous price break, Psyonix Studios has also released the latest multi-feature update that only adds to the overall gaming fun-factor and experience associated with SARPBC.

Features included in this update:

  • New "Cosmic" arena
  • Improved performance in network games
  • A server browser has been added during matchmaking
  • Players can now view leaderboards during matchmaking
  • News updates appear on the online page
  • Meters added to evaluate players' connection speed
  • Headsets can be plugged-in or swapped during gameplay

At absolutely no cost to the player "Cosmic," the newly added arena, presents a brand-new challenge to Battle-Cars combatants by integrating quarter-pipe ramps that lead up to each of the goals. Gamers will be graced with the majestic view of deep-space as the arena orbits a beautiful yet mysterious uncharted planet. Like other SARPBC arenas, "Cosmic" places the focus on teamwork and communication, but never lets fun fall in second place.
