Haunted Hallows Event coming to Rocket League!

Our first Rocket League Halloween themed event is about to go down!

For the first time Rocket League will work with limited currency items. These items are called Candy Corn and can be redeemed for decryptors, crates and other items. So there is indeed something to play for this coming weeks! Reminder that items you decryped during this event will remain in your inventory forever!

These decryptors will not cost money and you will not have to buy them! But a reminder that items unlocked with the decryptor are not tradeable!

The Haunted Hallows Event will kick off October 16 5PM EDT and will last to the beginning of November!

The Fast & Furious DLC is getting a sequel!

That’s right! October 11 will be your chance to buy the two most iconic vehicles from the Fast & Furious franchise!

The two cars; 70 Dodge Charger R/T’ and ‘’99 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 will have their own set of wheels, decals and more. And all that for $1.99 each (or regional equivalent).

Only a week away!

The Rocket League blow out is here. But there is more! Here’s a glimpse shared by Corey Davis on what is to come to Rocket League post Autumn update!

[Reminder Steam Only for now] One of the things that Rocket League is working on, is a new ingame Tournament set up. You can view the image below to see the first glimpse of their work in progress! The aim is to have the beta up and running before the end of 2017. Mind you this is a steam only beta for now. Other platforms will follow!

[Decryptor and more]

Part of the Tournaments page is also the ability to unlock any crate in your inventory with a decryptor. This bypasses the regular key you have to buy to unlock a crate. This will not be in the autumn update right away but is still work in progress. Image detailed below to show how it will work!

What’s in the new Accelerator Crate?

The new Rocket League Autumn update called Farmstead will introduce a new crate with new items and a new Battle-Car. Here’s a closer look! [GIF-Heavy!]

  1. Rare Paint Finish

2. Very Rare Rocket Trail – Hot Rocks

3. Import-Boost

4. Exotic Wheels – Chrono

5. Goal Explosion (Black Market) – Popcorn

6. Battle-Car – Jager 619RS

Rocket League’s Autumn update is coming September 28!

Rocket League’s long awaited Autumn update will drop on the 28 September. Be prepared for information overload!

The new update will introduce a new Arena called Farmstead that will be playable in on and offline matches and playlists. And that’s not the only map coming. New variants of excisting maps like Wasteland, DFH Stadium, Mannfield and more will be coming to on- offline matches and playlists (including ranked!)

Specially limited events will also be introduced with this update with the first event coming later this year. With this event you will be able to score decryptors which will help you unlock any crate in your inventory, including limited ones!

Also in this update is a new crate called the ‘Accelerator’. In this crate you will find new items (boosts, exotics, goal explosions and more) for you to unlock. Including a new Battle-Car!
