The ORIGINAL Battle-Cars - Never Before Seen Video

Postby Psyonix-DunhamSmash on Thu Feb 12, 2015 12:53 pm

Hey guys,

It's the anniversary of the original Battle-Cars' release in Europe this week AND it's #ThrowbackThursday, so we thought we'd put this little video together showing some pre-history to Supersonic.

Awesome, Had no idea that it evolved so much, those concepts look fun. It reminds me of good old Crash Team Racing Battle modes that I used to play with my friends on split screen on.

Would like to see these modes in the game eventually, DLC ? :)

So glad soccer was introduced. This game, however fun-looking, wouldn't have lasted nearly as long.

oooh! Really reminds me of the battle gamemode in mariokart. I guess that game turned into "combustible" in sarpbc, lol.

I'm starting to think that Psyonix started reminiscing on that build, and spent too many office hours playing it, hence no beta tests as of late.

The secret to the success of this game was in the balls all along

Hey, thanks for the link to my site! ;) As you can see, I've been a registered member since I first stumbled on to the game. Been a fan ever since! :) Although, if you look at my PSN profile, you'll see I never did very well at the game, nor got very far. But maybe that will change when I pick up Rocket League? Prior to this year, I probably wrote more stories about Psyonix than anyone else on the internet! haha... glad to see them finally getting their due! :D

I'm a game dev, and I love to tell people the story of how Crash Course became SARPBC. The courage to drop most of a working game when the fun is found somewhere else.

Holy moly! I've gotta say, when I originally heard about "SARPBC", that's what I envisioned and wanted to play. When I saw it was just soccer with cars... I took a pass. Don't get me wrong, I do love where this all ended up, but I would very much love to see game modes and arenas like that today.
I'M OUT. The decision to remove Neo Tokyo (and all the implications that holds for the future of this game) and start putting new cars inside crates... NOPE. See you somewhere else.
