Psyonix announces Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars for PSN

Proud of your prowess at tongue twisters? You’ll need all the skills you’ve got for Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, possibly the longest named game on the PSN network. Coming out in fall 2008, the game challenges players with physics-based movement, allowing you hurl your car about the playing field in all manner of acrobatics.

Inspired by soccer, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars sports a feature that even drop-dead gorgeous Gran Turismo 5: Prologue can’t boast about: you can demolish other cars in a spectacular showing of delightful brutality. Ban THAT, Malaysia!

According to Psyonix, the game will also feature a strong community involvement, placing emphasis on team and league play. In addition, the game fully supports trophies, in addition to mini-games, single player matches and more. Pricing has not been announced yet, but we should know more later this year. So, where do I sign up to crush other cars, now?

Psyonix Studios Creates One of the Longest Named Games Ever Online

El Segundo, Calif.- Aug. 8, 2008 Psyonix Studios today announced Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, an arena-based online vehicle sports game for PLAYSTATION(r) Network that brings together animated vehicles in sports-like gameplay.

The game 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.

Wide-ranging community involvement is supported through team and league play, as well as extensive statistical tracking, rankings, and rewards for individuals and teams. The game features mini-games and single player matches as well as team and league matches and scrimmage matches online. Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars will also feature PLAYSTATION(r)3 computer entertainment system trophies and players will be able to upload videos of their most exciting games to YouTube.

“It takes a pretty special game to carry such a lengthy title and be able to hold its head high amongst games with much shorter names,” commented Dave Hagewood, Director of Development at Psyonix Studios. “Thankfully, we don’t have to worry about fitting this title on a package.”

Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars is expected to be available in early fall 2008.
