Supersonic Acrobatic
Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars’ Holiday Update

Psyonix Studios Delivers the
Goods This Holiday Season

Psyonix Studios announced today that
Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, the action-packed game with the
insanely long name has received a five-dollar price break and is now available
for download on the PlayStation®Network on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer
entertainment system 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

    during matchmaking

  • News updates appear on the online

  • 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.

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 team-based soccer game, players
maneuver their vehicles 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.

"We really wanted to give back to
our growing community for the holidays," said Dave Hagewood, Founder/Development
Director of Psyonix Studios. "We’ve added the most requested features, lowered
the price of the game and added a free new arena. You get more Battle-Cars for
your gaming buck!"

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 PLAYSTATION®3 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 have the ability to save, upload and
share their amazing triumphs and hysterical battle-car antics to their
PLAYSTATION®3 system harddrive or upload clips directly to YouTube™.

Battle-Cars is available now for only $9.99. A free trial version of the game,
