Rocket League is all set to go spooky with the game’s Halloween event kicking off tomorrow, October 18. Expect new and free in-game Rocket League Halloween items, which are further specified in a post on the game’s official website.
“Our new Bone King Topper is perfect for those who need a little more freight in their life, while the Ghost is a spirit so lovable even the Ghostbusters wouldn’t want to trap it! For your Antenna this year, we have the Fuzzy Skull, which will give your opponents a scare as you go tearing through the pitch, and the Netherworld Rocket Trail will leave your opponents in the ghoulish dust!”
Aside from these new items dropping tomorrow, the development team is also bringing back Rocket League’s 2015 Halloween items. But it will be available for a limited time only as they will be gone November 1.
Meanwhile, as part of a collaboration with Alienware, The 5th Wave star Chloe Grace Moretz visited the Texas-based production company Rooster Teeth Studios and joined Achievement Hunter to play the popular futuristic sports-action video game. For the unfamiliar, Achievement Hunter is a Rooster Teeth channel which creates comedy style gaming videos as well as achievement guides.
“Alienware knows gaming is the great equalizer and gamers come in all shapes, sizes and ages. They’ve teamed up with actor and gamer Chloe Grace Moretz on a three-part video series, the first of which she competes alongside Achievement Hunter on Alienware PCs to play one of today’s hottest games, Rocket League,” the video description posted on Alienware’s YouTube channel explained. Those interested to see the entire series can catch the videos on Alienware.TV.
In a phone interview with Mashable, Moretz shared that through this collaboration with Alienware and Dell, she aims to challenge the common perception about “gamers.”
“It’s another form of sexism to say girls don’t game,” she said. “It’s unfair. Gaming is such a fun experience, I really wanted to show that in the web series — that it’s not aggressive, it’s not masculine. It’s just fun.”
Developed and published by Psyonix, Rocket League was first made available to the gaming world July of last year for PS4 and PC. This year, its Xbox One, OS X and Linux versions were finally released. In this game, “players are equipped with booster-rigged vehicles that can be crashed into balls for incredible goals or epic saves across multiple, highly-detailed arenas.”
“Using an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions, Rocket League relies on mass and momentum to give players a complete sense of intuitive control in this unbelievable, high-octane re-imagining of association football.”
One of the cool features highlighted by Rocket League is its extensive Battle-Car customization offering a whopping hundred billion plus possible combinations. Various game modes are also available such as Snow Day, Mutators, Rocket Labs and Hoops. Furthermore, a split-screen mode of up to four players can be used locally or online. An up to 8-player online action play in Rocket League also awaits fans of multiplayer gaming.
As for other games already in Halloween spirit, Polygon reported that Blizzard’s team-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game Overwatch is currently holding an event to celebrate the eerie season. Called Halloween Terror and available on PS4, PC, and Xbox One, it allows the players to earn holiday-themed skins such as a witch outfit for Mercy and Frankenstein’s Monster version of Roadhog. A new Brawl mode, Junkenstein Revenge, is another exciting highlight of Halloween Terror, which is set to run until November 1.
