The soccer-with-cars competitive game will host a “Haunted Hallows Event,” starting October 14 and running through the spooky season. Players can earn Stranger Things-related digital prizes by playing online games in special areas, and picking up “Candy Corn” credits. The game’s Farmstead Arena will be dressed up as Stranger Things’ scary alternative universe, the Upside Down.
In Rocket League, players take control of powerful automobiles that try to knock giant balls into opponents’ goals. The game, which is available on Mac, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, can be played in various modes featuring a variety of team sizes.
Items available during the Halloween promotion will include a Demogorgon player banner and player title as well as decals, including some based on show character Hopper. Haunted Hallows will end on November 11. Credits can also be spent on non-Stranger Things Halloween stuff.
Although Rocket League ran generic Halloween promotions for the last two years, this is the first time the game has teamed up with an official horror licence. More details are on Psyonix’s blog.
