And it starts tomorrow on all platforms.
What, you might well ask yourself, could be spookier than a grouchy man dressed as a bat? And if you answered your own question with an emphatic “Nothing!”, Well, then let me introduce you to Rocket League’s upcoming Halloween-themed limited-time event.
Rocket League is, of course, no stranger to Halloween celebrations, and it’s once again ushering in its annual Haunted Hallows event, albeit this time with a new DC Comics twist.
Kicking off tomorrow, 14th October, and running until 1st November, the Haunted Hallows event will feature a specially transformed limited-time Rumble mode featuring power-ups inspired by Batman and chums, including Joker’s Boxing Glove, Harley’s Hammer, replacing the Boot, and Poison Ivy’s vines, which stand in for the Grappling Hook.
Additionally, the event will feature the limited-time Beckwith Park (Gotham Night) Arena Variant, alongside special challenges that can be completed to unlock various Batman supervillain-themed items. There’s the Joker Dominus Decal and Boost, for instance, Harley Quinn Wheels and Topper, Gotham’s Finest Merc Decal, Poison Ivy Boost, and more.
Then finally, because what seasonal event would be complete without premium cosmetics for purchase, three Batmobiles will be appearing in Rocket League’s paid shop for the duration of Haunted Hallows – the The Batmobile (1989), The Dark Knight’s Tumbler, and the Batmobile (2016 ) – plus three Bat-Signal Goal Explosions, inspired by three different eras. All are available as part of a 2,000 Credit Bundle, but various other purchase options will also be available.
Proceedings get underway tomorrow, 14th October, and developer Psyonix notes that all players logging in during the Haunted Hallows event can claim the free Dark Knight Player Title.
