Less than a month after the release of its critically-acclaimed sports-action game, Rocket League, independent developer and publisher, Psyonix, revealed today the game’s first paid downloadable content pack. Dubbed “Supersonic Fury,” the new DLC Pack introduces two new exclusive vehicles, “Dominus” the muscle car and “Takumi” the Japanese street racer, plus several new Decals, Paint Types, Rocket Boosts, Wheels, PlayStation® Trophies, and Steam Achievements.
In addition to the paid “Supersonic Fury” DLC Pack, Psyonix will also release a free game update that includes the highly-anticipated Spectator Mode, enabling players to join live games and watch other people play in real time.

Rocket League is one of the most critically-acclaimed games of the summer, with a community that is already 5 million players strong. Available digitally on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system via the PlayStation®Network and on PC via Steam, Rocket League brings gamers a high-powered hybrid of arcade-style soccer and vehicular mayhem. Offering easy-to-understand controls and deep, fluid physics-driven competition for 1-8 players, Rocket League boasts more than 10 billion possible customizations, giving players the opportunity to distinguish their Battle-Cars in either local or online play, while showing them off in a broadcast-quality replay viewer that perfectly complements the video-editing capabilities of SHAREfactory™.
The multiplayer-focused successor to 2008’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions, relying on mass and momentum to give players a complete sense of intuitive control in an unbelievable, high-octane re-imaging of association football. Players can breeze through the tutorial and play solo in the all-new Season Mode or vie against the AI in multiple team formations and difficulty settings. Up to four people can compete in two-to-four-player splitscreen action as well, with up to eight total players battling it out online (in Ranked, Unranked, or Private Matches) on dedicated servers located all over the world.
