The full patch notes for Version 1.68 – including new content, changes and updates, and bug fixes – can be viewed on the official Rocket League website. This event ends on 11th November.
Original Story (10th Oct, 11:15 BST): Rocket League developer Psyonix has announced that hit Netflix series Stranger Things will headline the game's upcoming Haunted Hallows event, which explains what that "flip what you expect" tease was all about.
The event will allow players to earn ‘Candy Corn’ by playing online matches, which can then be used to redeem various Stranger Things-themed items, as well as more general Halloween-themed goodies, too. Farmstead Arena has also been flipped Upside Down, with the new 'Farmstead (The Upside Down) Arena' being available in the Arena rotation for the duration of the event.
Here's a quick look at the Stranger Things-themed content you can expect to find in the Haunted Hallows event:
- Limited Time Arenas
- Farmstead (The Upside Down) Arena
- Event Items
- Camp Know Where Topper
- Demogorgon Player Banner
- DEMOgorgon Player Title
- Hawaiian Hopper Decal
- Scoops Ahoy Avatar Border
- Starcourt Wheels
- Stranger Things Boost
The event kicks off on 14th October on all platforms; it'll end on 11th November with a three-day Redemption Period lasting until the 14th, where remaining ‘Candy Corn’ can be used in the Event Store.
