Rocket League gets a spooky free update this month

Free Halloween DLC is coming to … Rocket League?


It’s that time of year again: pumpkins, bats, witches, candy, people complaining about how early Christmas decorations go up – and, of course, holiday-themed game updates.

To our surprise, Rocket League is one of the first titles to get in on Halloween. Although vehicular sports may not be an obvious subject for a spooky makeover, according to the PlayStation Blog Psyonix just loves the holiday too much to let it pass unmarked.

The developer is adding a number of Halloween-themed customisations to the game as of October 18. They’ll be totally free; you’ll find them in post-match item drops, win or lose. Be on the lookout for:

  • “Calavera” Antenna
  • “Candy Corn” Rocket Trail
  • “Carriage” Wheels
  • “Fuzzy Brute” Antenna
  • “Fuzzy Vampire” Antenna
  • “Pumpkin” Topper

The free update will follow within a week of the $4 Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC.
