Are you ready for a trip back to the 1980s? Then step right up because Rocket League’s Radical Summer event is now live – and will run for a solid nine weeks – so come learn more about it!
This extremely choice event is split into three celebrations of the 1980s: Blockbusters, Culture, and Television. Each celebration lasts three weeks. Similar to previous events, play Online Matches to earn ‘Cassettes’ and redeem them for in-game, ’80s-themed items all summer long. Radical Summer’s Event Store will change for each phase of Radical Summer, bringing in new items for your Battle-Car. And don’t worry, at the end of the event, we’ll give you a week to redeem Cassettes for any items you may have missed.
The Radical Summer party starts on the field with three new limited-time game modes that will be featured individually throughout the event. To celebrate the arrival of Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 Battle-Car, jump into the new wickedly spooky Ghost Hunt Mode. Ghost Hunt, which will be featured in the Blockbusters phase of Radical Summer, is a 3v3 mode where each team uses their proton stream power-ups to try to trap the ghostly ball in your opponents’ Containment Zone. Ghost hunt features new, scary lighting and ghostly sound effects on the Urban Central Arena and will be playable until July 1.
You can’t throw a summer bash without friends, and we’re inviting the biggest ’80s franchises to Rocket League. Here’s every ’80s franchise you can expect to see in Radical Summer:
