It's that time of year again where the majority of community-driven video games are celebrating the spooky season. Rocket League is once again joining in on the fun with the return of the Haunted Hallows event. This is technically the first time Rocket League players on Switch will be able to participate in the Halloween scares, as the game was originally released on Nintendo's hybrid system in November 2017.

From the start of 15th October, you'll be able to earn special 'Candy Corn' whenever you play and compete in online Rocket League matches. In exchange for these candies, you can obtain limited edition decals, toppers, wheels and more. There'll also be 'Golden Pumpkin' doubling as loot crates - which contain one special customisation item from the nitro, turbo or player's choice crates. It's also noted how no key or decryptor is required to redeem Candy Corn or a Golden Pumpkin. When the event ends on 5th November, there'll be an additional three days to redeem any leftover Candy Corn.

On a related note, this weekend through to next Monday, Psyonix is hosting its first-ever Double XP Weekend in Rocket League. This is to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the original 2008 PlayStation 3 game, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. Here are the details:

Base XP that's earned in Online Matches will double via a "+100% Special Event” multiplier we’ve been saving for a special occasion. All additional bonuses and multipliers will be operating normally.

Take a look at the trailer above and tell us in the comments if you're up for some spooky or Double XP fun in Rocket League.
