The Rocket League 1.85 update patch notes bring forth a slew of changes for the new free-to-play game. The Haunted Hallows Halloween event makes a return, letting players earn certain spooky gear. This includes some Ghostbusters-branded items as well. There are also a few small changes to the core game, too.
Rocket League 1.85 Update Patch Notes | Haunted Hallows start and end date
The Haunted Hallows event start date is October 20 at 9 AM PT and will stretch to November 2 at 6 pm PT. This event will include challenges, limited-time modes, and a bunch of themed items. Completing challenges will net you a few pieces of gear like Ghostbusters Wheels, Slimer Topper, Mood Slime Boost, and more. Do all the challenges to get the whole Ghostbusters set. Remember that you can earn Golden Pumpkins as the special event currency.
The two limited-time modes are Haunted Heatseeker and Spike Rush. Both are like the normal non-spooky modes but take place on Halloween-themed maps. The former starts on October 20 and the latter starts on October 26.
