Back To The Footie: Rocket League's DeLorean DLC

Great Scott!

For a few years now, internauts have enjoyed editing stills from Back to the Future Part II to pretend today's the date young Marty McFly travels forward to - the time when we should all ride hoverboards and feed our cars garbage. Well, that date is really for really reals almost here - October 21st, 2015 - and it's being marked in a fine way by Rocket League [official site].

Cry "Great Scott!" and (in excited confusion) "Wubba lubba dub-dub!" as Psyonix are only flipping putting Doc Brown's DeLorean time machine into their footie-with-cars game. It will not travel through time. It will cost you $2.

Psyonix gab about it on the PlayStation Blog (don't mind it being the PS blog, Psyonix have confirmed it'll be on PC too):

"Truth be told, we used to fantasize and joke about having the DeLorean Time Machine in our game months before it even came out. 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!

"Hopefully you'll never forget your time with the DeLorean Time Machine either, as we've worked meticulously to recreate its look, feel, and folding jet-wheels just as they appeared in the original motion picture trilogy. Best of all, it's a heck of a lot of fun to play with - and comes complete with its signature 'Burnt Rubber' Rocket Trail to boot!"

It looks pretty dang cool:
