Where does the DeLorean come from in the videogame?

posted by VarelaPet on - last edited - Viewed by 8.4K users
Hello everyone!

This can be a silly question, or maybe someone else asked it before, but the thing is that I don't get it: Since the DeLorean is destroyed at the end of Back To The Future III, where does the DeLorean come from at the beginning of the videogame? Probably this question is answered in a dialogue during the videogame, but I don't remember when this happened.

Thanks in advance.

  • yeah i am thinking 4th dimensionally..;)


    lightbulb moment ! i get it now lol there's actually two deloreans in 1885 ?

    the one doc crashed in and the one marty brings back ?

    even tho we are to assume marty brings the same car back, the facts are the docs car is just 'hidden'

    whew :P thanks makes more sense now :P

    if anything why the doc didn't figure out 'to push the delorean by train' sooner and then travel back on his own and then pick up marty lol or instead of saying oh ask my 'counter part for help again i'll meet you there as soon as i can.
  • Here's basically doc's timeline from the end of part II

    January 1st 1885-september 1st 1885; arrive in the old west, set himself up as a blacksmith, attempt to repair the damaged time circuits.

    september 1st 1885; he gave up on his attempts for many possible reasons. It could be because he wanted to make sure Marty got back (depending on your theory on the space time continuum, it may be imperative Marty gets home due to the importance of 2015), maybe because Doc is already happy, maybe because he's run out of ideas, or maybe the delorean ran out of gas.

    September 2nd - 7th; in the original timeline Doc meets Clara, falls in love and gets shot. In the new timeline, the events of part III happen

    September 8th - final scene in part III. Doc stranded with Clara. It should be noted Jules seems around 10 years old, it's not like doc built a new time machine the next day. He does make a point to say that it runs on steam. Also he has clara (who knows quite a bit about science as well) to help him. As smart as doc is, he doesn't know the 19th century and it's science as well as Clara might. Also he has more than 8 months. We don't know whether Doc would have been able to eventually fix the delorean since he gets shot in the original timeline.
  • lol it never occurred to me all these years of watching the movies that there was still the Deloreon in 1885. haha great stuff.
  • Huh. I thought it was just that Doc figured he would mess something up in his timeline, and rebuilt Delorean so that he could send it to find Marty?

    The reason Doc couldn't do it himself was because the Delorean's Time Machine half was the part that wasn't working. It still functioned fine as a car; Doc could have driven it out to the desert and floored the pedal, but even if he did manage to get up to 88 on that terrain nothing would have happened. That's why he stowed it away with notes for Marty and his 1955 self, because it wasn't until then that the components needed to fix the Time Circuits would be available.

  • He just had to use the hover board to fix the mr. fusion in the hidden delorian. he then went to the future and got the parts to build the train and put the delorian back the way it was before so Marty could find it and not alter the timeline.

  • Doc explained it in an optional dialogue in Episode 1.

    Basically when the lightning struck the Delorean in BTTF2, it produced a gigawatt overlead which sent a temporal duplicate 70 years into the future ( Instead of 70 years in the past like in BTTF2 ). Doc met the duplicate Delorean during a travel to 2025 with his train and family and retrived it before Griff Tannen got his hands on it.
    For all intent and purpose this is the exact same Delorean as in BTTF2, except the various additions Doc added over time and the fact it doesn't fly since it was struck by lightning.

  • I noticed the explanation when I played it. When the Delorean got hit by lightning it created a copy that went to the future. Doc found it just in time to prevent it anyone from using it to cause problems.

    Yeah. Doc mentioned that Griff (Biff's grandson from Back to the Future 2) found the temporal duplicate DeLorean first in 2025, but Doc managed to go to 2025 in the time train and was able to get the DeLorean back from Griff before he could ruin the time stream. Presumably, since the time circuits and flying circuits were fried in 1885, they would have been fried in 2025 too, so this story would likely be more boring than it seems, as it wouldn't be able to travel through time without Doc fixing it like he had to get his 1955 self to do in the third film.

    It's likely the temporal duplicate DeLorean didn't fly either when Doc found it, but since he was in 2025 already, he was able to get brand new flying circuits installed.

  • There could be any number of reasons.

    Like Doc deciding that it would be better to build another Delorean so he can travel time without being as noticeable when he arrives.

    While his train looking time traveling machine looks damn cool and has some kind of futuristic technology, it's hard to use in populated areas that are designed for cars.
