As is now tradition, Rocket League is poised to unleash its annual Haunted Hallows event for this most spooky of seasons. However, the four-wheeled footie game’s Halloween celebrations are getting a bit of a shake-up this year, thanks to a special Stranger Things tie-in.
Rocket League’s latest Haunted Hallows event kicks off next Monday, 14th October, and will once again see players battling it out on the pitch to earn Candy Corn, which can be used in the seasonal store to unlock autumn-inspired items.
According to developer Psyonix, this year’s tie-in with Stranger Things will manifest in an additional range of unlockable items, all inspired by the Netflix show, and a specially spooked-up version of Rocket League’s Farmstead arena. This will see the stage receive an Upside Down makeover, including blood red skies and the imposing form of the Mind Flayer – both of which, along with a few of the promised seasonal cosmetics, can be seen in the trailer below.
