'Rocket League' Haunted Hallows Event Brings Back Batman, Batmobiles, Events And More - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 13, 2021 @ 1:52 p.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.

It's nightfall in Gotham City, and the Rogues Gallery is gearing up for mischief and mayhem. This calls for the return of the Dark Knight himself! The hero Rocket League deserves is back to restore order during the annual Haunted Hallows in-game event on October 14! 

Prepare for a long Halloween with Haunted Hallows Event Challenges.

These new Challenges can be completed to unlock items themed after iconic Batman Super-Villains. Check out the trailer above and the slideshow below featuring the Joker Dominus Decal and Boost, Gotham's Finest Merc Decal, Harley Quinn Wheels and Topper, Poison Ivy Boost, and more! Plus, claim the free Dark Knight Player Title as a log-in reward.

Batman and his foes are also taking over Rumble and transforming it into Gotham City Rumble. This new twist is the same Rumble gameplay, but power-ups are now themed after Batman and his enemies. Use your power-ups and engage Joker's Boxing Glove, Harley's Hammer instead of the Boot, Poison Ivy's vines instead of the Grappling Hook, and many more. Claim a dark victory in Gotham City Rumble while it's available as an LTM all throughout Haunted Hallows.

This year's Haunted Hallows swoops in with the all-new Arena variant: Beckwith Park (Gotham Night). Beckwith Park has been infiltrated by the most notorious Super-Villains of Gotham City. Be on the lookout for nods and easter eggs scattered all around this new limited-time Arena. Catch a glimpse of Beckwith Park (Gotham Night) in the trailer above. 

Batman's return to Rocket League wouldn't be complete without his iconic vehicle, the Batmobile. All three versions of the Dark Knight's high-tech vehicle, the Batmobile (1989), The Dark Knight's Tumbler, and the Batmobile (2016), are speeding back into the Item Shop. Each Batmobile comes with the new Reel Life Decal, giving them their signature black color from the movies. Plus, celebrate your goals with three Bat-Signal Goal Explosions! These three fiery Goal Explosions show off the Bat-Symbol from three different eras.

Get all the Batmobiles and Goal Explosions in the Batman Halloween Bundle (2000 Credits) or buy each vehicle or item separately. Here's what's included in each:

  • Batmobile (1989)
    • Reel Life Decal
  • The Dark Knight's Tumbler
    • Reel Life Decal
  • Batmobile (2016) 
    • Reel Life Decal
  • Batman 1989 Goal Explosion
  • The Dark Knight Goal Explosion
  • Batman 2016 Goal Explosion

Individual Batmobile Bundles (includes vehicle, Reel Life Decal, and a Goal Explosion) (800 Credits Each)

Each Reel Life Decal will be available for current Batmobile owners for 300 Credits each. The three Bat-Signal Goal Explosions will also be available individually for 500 Credits each. 

*Note: the Batmobile (1989), The Dark Knight's Tumbler, and the Batmobile (2016) cannot be customized with additional items. 

Suit up and join Batman in the fight during this year's Haunted Hallows starting October 14 through November 1. Be sure to earn your Challenge Items, throw down in Gotham City Rumble, check out Beckwith Park (Gotham Night), and take control of the Batmobile in the Item Shop all throughout the event!
