Batmobile Driving Into Rocket League Next Month

Rocket League [official site] hasn’t exactly shied away from DLC since its release last year, however this update, as superficial as it may be, might well be my favourite. Tied in with the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cinema release next month, The Bat’s iconic wheels will be whizzing into the Wasteland come March 8th.

There was much hype when the DeLorean DMC-12 was added to Rocket League amid the Back To The Future mania that swallowed the world for a few days towards the end of last year. I for one love the series of time-travelling, hover-boarding, Biff-bashing movies, yet couldn’t help but cringe at the amount of rubbish that was circulating around the time – not least this awful tweet from the UK’s Department of Work and Pensions.

As such, for all I liked the DeLorean as it starred in Rocket League, I felt it was overshadowed by all the rabble going on elsewhere. The Batmobile, on the other hand, looks pretty amazing. It’s no less shameless as far as movie tie ins go, but, well, see what you think for yourself:

Cool, eh? Rocket League’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Car Pack offers players the Batmobile as it’ll appear in the forthcoming movie and will also include three antenna flags: one for Batman, one for Superman, and one for Wonder Woman.

The update will cost $1.99 – or the “regional equivalent” – and will be available on Steam as of March 8. Now we can all learn to fly on the field as the Caped Crusader.

    They should offer several designs – the Tim Burton ones, the Nolan tumbler, and the new one

    Without the rubber bullets, it just feels wrong.

    If that bat explosion is part of the DLC then Psyonix has just created the greatest incentive to buy a piece of DLC ever.

      I imagine it will be, the DeLorean explosion has OUTATIME written in flames.

      Based on the screenshot I was going to mock you mercilessly.

      But I watched the video. Now I want the DLC.

    “The update will cost $1.99” – and this ladies and gentlemen is micro-transactions done right. It A) is cosmetic only and B) actually puts the ‘micro’ in micro-transaction.

    Shut up rocket league and take my money.

      Exactly what I was going to say. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to buy every piece of DLC for Rocket League just to support their fantastic business model. (It helps that the game is superb too, of course!)

    Still no OSX and Linux unfortunately, though promised for December 2015.
    It’s a shame, really, as I’d LOVE to play this fabulous game, but I still can’t. Sucks to be me.*

    * Applies in general. Applies especially regarding Rocket League.

      I’m running RocketLeague on Linux for half a year now under wine. It works like a charm. In case of performance, stability or functionality I didn’t notice any differences to the “pure windows” version. Though I had to remove a library from the blacklist in order to get steam overlay working. And I had to use xbox360cemu so that my steam controller works. Which is also running perfectly without any downsides with that method.
