Psyonix have put the Lucky Lanterns event live now in Rocket League. No update is needed today, as one went out a few days ago to prepare for it.
Working just like previous events, giving you a special currency for playing which you can then redeem for special customization items. This time around though, there's no special game mode to play. Instead, there's an entirely new arena called The Forbidden Temple Arena. You can see a trailer for the event below:
The festival ends on February 10, 6PM UTC but you will have until February 13 at 6PM UTC to use up all your special Red Envelopes earned during this time.
I've had a few matches on the new arena now and it's lovely, everything works great still too. Nice to see the Linux version of it working properly, unlike what happened with Salty Shores with the audio messing up every match, at least with The Forbidden Temple Arena it's perfect. A shot of it in action:
I do always enjoy these special events, I've become something of a collector when it comes to Rocket League items and these events are a fun way to get a bunch of really cool looking items totally free just by playing. You also get this free item just for logging in during the event—sweet.
