Rocket League haunted hallows update and 1.68 patch notes confirmed

Psyonix will today release their Stranger Things themed Rocket League Halloween event.

It's due to begin at 10 a.m. PDT / 5 p.m. UTC across all platforms. For anyone in the UK that's a 6pm BST start time.

It'll be strikingly similar to past in-game events which have seen players earn ‘Candy Corn’ by playing Online Matches.

In turn you'll be able to get some sweet new Stranger Things-themed items for your collection.

As if that wasn't enough, the Farmstead Arena has also been transported to the Upside Down and the new Farmstead (The Upside Down) Arena will be available in the Arena rotation for the duration of the event.

You can take a closer look on the below trailer. However, if you simply want to know whats changed with this latest update, have a look at the new patch notes underneath.
