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.

Epic Games Acquires Psyonix

Revealed in a surprise announcement, Epic Games will be acquiring Rocket League developer studio Psyonix very soon.

After scoring surprising success with vehicular soccer game Rocket League on all major platforms, indie developer/publisher Psyonix has made quite a reputation and now they are being acquired by industry giant Epic Games.

Obviously this transaction will take time as each party would negotiate their conditions, which will probably take another month or two and the game will eventually come to their digital distribution platform Epic Games Store.

Epic has managed to amass a fortune by taking the world by storm with their free-to-play online Battle Royale game Fortnite and now they even have their own online marketplace to feature exclusive titles from various publishers.

Although Psyonix claimed to provide continued support for PC version of Rocket League through releasing frequent updates but from what it looks like, it will become another exclusive game when it comes to Epic Store in late 2019.

It is stated in their official announcement that the title will stay on every other available platform for sale and cleared their intent to support all existing purchase on Steam, tactfully avoid mentioning whether they are completely removing it from Valve's storefront.

Of course, that is just a speculation at this point but a very obvious one given Epic's recent history of bagging exclusives from Steam. However, moving over to Epic Games would give Psyonix some long-term advantage like getting more eSports coverage.
