Haunted Hallows Event Starts October 16!

Rocket League’s first-ever Haunted Hallows special Event is just around the corner, which means that it’s time for a closer, not-at-all spooky look at Rocket League’s upcoming Event system!

Earning and Spending Currency

Our Event system introduces a new limited-time currency, with the first being Candy Corn! All you need to do to earn it is to play (and complete) Online Matches. In order to use Candy Corn, simply click the 'Special Event' button on the main menu screen. From there, you can redeem whatever you've earned to claim Halloween Items, Decryptors, and Locked "Haunted Hallows" Crates.

Candy Corn can be spent throughout the Event, and will expire one week after Haunted Hallows is over, but don't worry -- Items purchased with Candy Corn DO NOT expire at the end of the event, and will remain in your inventory forever!

*Note: The standalone items you can buy with Candy Corn are NOT the same as the items available in the ‘Haunted Hallows’ Crate!

Image

Decryptors


Decryptors are the newest way to unlock Crates in Rocket League and they can be used for any Crate in the game (including Event Crates). The only way to get Decryptors is to buy them with Candy Corn. But remember: any Crate Item unlocked through the use of Decryptors will be untradeable. If you want to trade an unlocked item, make sure you use a normal Key.

Image

Event Crates


Our new ‘Haunted Hallows’ Event Crates are only available during the Haunted Hallows event, and there are three ways to get them. As always, you can get a new Crate as a drop after some Online Matches, and you can also buy the Crate using Candy Corn. In both cases, you can open the Crate with a Key or a Decryptor. We’re also letting you buy Event Crates directly, similar to how you buy Keys, and any purchased ‘Haunted Hallows’ Crate will not require a Key or Decryptor to unlock.

Finally, the Haunted Hallows Event Crates will not be updated for next Halloween. If you decide to wait a year to open one of these Crates, it will still have the same potential item inside as it does during this event.

The Haunted Hallows event gets rolling this Monday, October 16 at 5pm PDT, so get ready to earn some Candy Corn.

Haunted Hallows Event Start Time
  • Monday, October 16 at 5pm PDT (8pm EDT/2am CEDT on October 17)
Haunted Hallows Event End Time
  • Monday, November 6 at 10am PST (1pm EST/7pm CET)

Q: If you use multiple decryptors, is it possible to get the same item twice, like you can with regular keys? I ask because I don't like the idea of having multiple duplicate items that I can't trade. Also, does the fact that I can't trade it mean only with players, that I can't trade up, or both?

It just looks like Death to me, which is appropriate, considering the holiday.

No fixes and more micro-transactions? Fuck you and fuck your crates. The Xbox port is still broken and bugs from the 1.37 patch are still persistent. Fix yo shit first, then add fun stuff.

Buying the crates instead of buying keys isn't that much of an improvement. Just sayin!

I agree with this 100% As soon as I saw it. I was very turned off. Get rid of the end gesture please. I will not buy a single crate now. Glad I saw this first. My money stays mine until removed/Edited. :evil:

Why buying crates are that damn expensive? I would have understand if 1 Crate = 1€/1$ ( or less ), but come on... over 2€? ( Individual )
Nonetheless, I did bought 10 straight away and for me, it was an okay deal compared what I actual got it. But ugh... How about just putting prices down to same level as keys?

Sure, I am probably knowing about the reason why those are priced as such. Still, could be cheaper, especially when... ehh... yea. A bit wicked... still I do not regret buying so, but not gonna buy anymore either.
Neo-Tokyo, Starbase ARC, Wastelands...
...Those are reason I STOPPED playing ranked

Anybody know how much candy corn you earn per game? Do you get more for a win/defeat or goals scored/saved etc? The few games ive played it seemed a very random 4,5 or 6 candy corn!

This event is really bad. With all other seasonal events prior, you could get all items for free. Now they've made that impossible. Looks like the greed is kicking into overdrive.

There are a bunch of free items that you can buy with just candy corn, the crate is a different entity.

wow could you make this shorter?

Was it too hard to release it Oct 1? were you busy . . . . making a shitty underutilized farm level that just shines a low hanging sun in your eyes?

Have you reduced your dev team? This game is great, but not because of you, because the concept is as fun as kicking a ball around.
You have nothing but time.

Seriously, I buy 5 crates and I get all 5 decals? Total BS. You couldn't at least attempt to to make it somewhat random with some good items? Now I have to explain to the kids what "ripoff" means...

you guys lost serious cred from a couple of kids that literally play this 4 hours a day.
