Rocket League is just one of the few games that will be hosting a special in-game Halloween event this month.
Similarly to previous years (this is now a bonafide tradition!), this event will bring an in-game Halloween party to Rocket League, which includes things like festive decorations, costumes for your vehicles, and more funky cosmetics besides.
Psyonix has told us that we can expect more information about the spooky event later this week, so rest assured we'll keep you updated as soon as that's announced.
We do know that the developer is planning to 'flip what we know' about the event so far (hmm, interesting wording) and that we'll be able to earn Candy Corn currency once again.
Other than that, details are pretty scarce.
We've got a lot of information about a massive new patch that's coming to the game alongside the Halloween Hallows event – and you can read all about that below.
Rocket League Haunted Hallows Event 2019 – Start Time
Psyonix has revealed we will start seeing the Halloween event roll out on 14th October.
This will be the same for all platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
We'll keep you updated when we hear more about a specific launch time for the event.
Rocket League Haunted Hallows Event 2019 – Update
The Halloween Hallows event will go live with some major new changes to the game, and they're quite far-reaching.
These include (but are not limited to): post-game party-up, team coloured boost meter, quickplay button, news panel refresh, and new esports teams.
You can see the full post from Psyonix about these new changes below.
Easily partying-up with teammates following a match is about to get a whole lot easier. If your team synergy is off the charts with a player or team you met in an Online Match, you'll easily be able to party-up with them from the post-game menu. Simply select "Party-Up" after a match. Teammates who also select "Party-Up will then be grouped together with you for the next game. We hope you're able to make some new Rocket League friends with the new Party-Up feature!
TEAM-COLORED BOOST METER
With an ever-growing collection of Painted Battle-Cars and Decals, we wanted to make it even easier to see exactly what color team you're on at the start of each game. That's why the October Update is bringing colored Boost Meters. The Boost Meter itself will remain the same, but the Meter's background will be blue or orange depending on your team color. The Boost Meter will also match custom team colors, and the Colorblind Mode option will apply to the boost meter, too!
There will soon be one less button press to get you exactly where you want to go. Following the update, you'll be able to select "Quickplay" and immediately start searching for a game in the last playlist you joined. New players will default to the 3v3 Standard Playlist when selecting Quickplay for the first time.
NEWS PANEL REFRESH
As soon as you start up Rocket League following the October Update, you'll notice that the news section has received a new coat of paint. The grid of information that is usually found on the right side of the screen has been replaced with a new welcome screen that will highlight new events, DLC, or other major announcements. Once dismissed, it can be accessed again via a hidden News Tab on the right side of the screen.
NEW ESPORTS TEAMS
Two new teams are being added to the Esports Shop rotation: Complexity and Spacestation Gaming! Look out for their new items in the Esports Shop following the update.
