Rocket League is going full-on 80s in its Radical Summer event next week
Summer is (supposedly) upon us, and Rocket League is celebrating the season with a nostalgic trip back to the 80s - and a nine-week run of events and goodies, inspired by the era's most iconic movies and TV.
Developer Psyonix is calling its sun-bleached 80s event Radical Summer, and things get underway on Monday, 10th June. The focus is entirely on iconic movies until 1st July, with the highlight arguably being the arrival of Rocket League's new Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car Pack, which introduces the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Battle-Car, Ecto-1 Wheels, Proton Pack Boost, Slimer Topper, Ghostbusters Player Banner, Ghostbusters Avatar Border, and the Stay Puft Goal Explosion - all for an entirely reasonable $1.99 USD (likely to be around £1.69).
Players can also take part in online matches to earn Cassettes during the whole nine-week event, and these are used to unlock in-game items - inspired by the likes of Karate Kid, Back to the Future, ET, and The Goonies during movies weeks - in the Radical Summer Event Store.
