Rocket League Halloween update sees Ghostbusters return

Psyonix Rocket League Haunted Hallows 2020 Halloween event Rocket League Ghostbusters

The Halloween event begins in Rocket League today, with developer Psyonix once again teaming up with the Ghostbusters crew. This year’s Haunted Hallows has mostly been done before in Rocket League, but it provides a chance for players who missed out previously. If you jumped in at the free-to-play launch, here’s what’s in store.

The event lasts through Nov. 2, with a different limited-time playlist for each week. The first half of the event will contain Haunted Heatseeker, a variation of Rocket League‘s Heatseeker mode played in a Haunted Urban Arena. Then Spike Rush follows, played out on nighttime versions of existing maps.

A selection of event challenges will also go live in Rocket League for the duration of Haunted Hallows. Complete them and you’ll be able to get your hands on some themed rewards. Here’s what Psyonix is offering this time around:

  • Ghostbusters Avatar Border
  • GhostBusters Player Banner
  • Ghostbusters Wheels
  • Stay Puft Topper
  • Stay Puft Wheels
  • Ectoplasm Boost
  • Mood Slime Boost
  • Ghost Trap Topper
  • Slimer Topper
  • Ecto-1 Player Banner

The Item Shop will also be decked out with extra Ghostbusters content for Rocket League. The Ecto-1 vehicle returns, as well as a selection of other items from previous Haunted Hallows events. While it’s disappointing there’s not much new here, this is the first time that the free-to-play player base will have access to this content.
