'Rocket League' (ALL) Brings Back Ghostbusters for Halloween

by Rainier on Oct. 19, 2020 @ 11:50 a.m. PDT

Rocket League is a fast-paced action-sports game featuring amazing physics, crazy aerial action, and compelling multiplayer combat.

The sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League expands on its successful pedigree with improved graphics and physics systems, a robust new single-player campaign, considerable customization options, and a fully-charged multiplayer game geared for a next-generation action-sports experience.

Rocket League is a futuristic action-sports game where players pilot rocket-powered vehicles in an enhanced version of soccer by driving their vehicles into the ball and other players in a variety of arenas. Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions between cars and the ball, where mass and momentum determine how hard balls and cars hit each other, creating a unique and visceral playing experience.


Psyonix announced that Ghostbusters will headline the upcoming Rocket League Haunted Hallows Event starting tomorrow, October 20, on all platforms! The in-game event will feature Event Challenges that unlock Ghostbusters-themed items and two Limited Time Modes.

Haunted Hallows will begin on October 20 and end on November 2. Once the event goes live, players will need to complete Event Challenges to unlock the following themed items:

  • 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 two Limited Time Modes that will be available for Haunted Hallows are:

  • Haunted Heatseeker (October 20 - October 26) - Heatseeker mode will be played in a spooky new Haunted Urban Arena
  • Spike Rush (October 26 - November 2) - Spike Rush will be played on night map variants

The Item Shop will also feature additional Ghosbusters-themed items, including the return of the Ecto-1, as well as items from previous Haunted Hallows, like the Reaper Goal Explosion, for the duration of the event! 

Key Features:

  • New Season Mode: Players now can enjoy a full single-player experience with Season mode, bolstered by extensive vehicle customizations, unlockable items, multiple arenas, and more.
  • Fully Upgraded Online, Local and Splitscreen Multiplayer Modes: Fans of the original will love the returning options for two- to four-player competition, from on-the-couch split-screen competition to the robust online play.
  • Team-focused Gameplay: Rocket League’s team-oriented play compels gamers to learn short- and long-term tactics and strategies to stay in the game, challenge their friends, and stay atop the monthly leaderboards.
  • Physics-driven Vehicle Interactions: Built with rocket-equipped vehicles capable of aerial attacks, passes and shots, and physics-driven ball action, Rocket League is a wild, visceral action-sports experience.
  • Content Overload: Rocket League builds upon its predecessor with a healthy array of completely new unlockable vehicles, arenas, more than 100 customization items, and other surprises.
  • Dedicated Gameplay Servers: Super-smooth online gameplay guarantees an even better Rocket-Powered Battle-Car experience.
