Rocket League Adds Knight Rider Car Pack DLC

Iconic futuristic car K.I.T.T. from '80s blockbuster TV show Knight Rider speeds into vehicular soccer game Rocket League.

With 1980's themed seasonal event "Radical Summer" currently in full swing for vehicular soccer game Rocket League, celebration focused on '80s popular blockbusters are currently ongoing by developer/publisher Psyonix.

Before closing out, one last ode to a classic television show from that decade seemed like a long overdue and thus came the idea of adding advanced, self-aware futuristic car K.I.T.T. into newest Knight Rider Car Pack DLC.

Already available now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, it includes K.I.T.T. Battle-Car, K.I.T.T. Wheels and K.I.T.T. Gullwing steering wheel Topper but unfortunately, self-driving capabilities will not be a part of it.

Although late, K.I.T.T. has eventually come to leave its mark on pitch as from a very early phase of Rocket League, Psyonix always wanted to add the car to their assembly and that goal is finally fulfilled with Knight Rider Car Pack.

However, they didn't have enough resources or enough turnaround time back then to bring K.I.T.T. into tracks. Until the game becomes a hit in recent years, developers were not sure whether a licensed DLC pack would be successful.

Rocket League currently features more than a dozen of licensed vehicles that were taken from a renowned movie or TV show. Following its inclusion, K.I.T.T. has now become a center of appeal for Radical Summer event.
