Rocket League update 1.85 & Ghostbusters Halloween event announced

Rocket League (which recently went free-to-play) is celebrating Halloween in style this year, offering players the chance to net some Ghostbusters themed goodies as part of its Haunted Hallows event.

Starting today (and running through til November 3rd) you’ll be able to unlock a cluster of spooky cosmetics for your vehicle all based on the popular film franchise.


These goodies include a Slimer roof attachment, as well as Mood Slime boost and Golden Pumpkins containing items from the Turbo, Nitro and Vindicator series. Ecto-1 will also be returning this year and will be up for grabs via the Rocket League marketplace.

As with the previous Fornite crossover event, you will need to complete a series of themed challenges in order to get this Ghostbusters swag. Alongside these rewards there are two limited time game modes to participate in including Haunted Heatseeker and Spike Rush.

That’s not the only bit of Rocket League news coming your way. Developer Psyonix have also released their newest update for the popular footie/racing hybrid, bringing version 1.83 to all platforms.
