Psyonix have put up their latest in-game event for Rocket League, with the Radical Summer event now live. They also have a new limited-time Ghost Hunt mode and a Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car Pack DLC. Let's take a look at it all!
As a reminder, the Radical Summer event will be lasting a whole nine weeks, with this first Blockbusters phase that lasts until July 1st. During the event, you will be able to earn Cassettes which you then redeem for special items. Through each three-week phase of the event, the items you can redeem will change. However, all the items will appear together at the end of the event to allow you to get as many as you want with your Cassettes.
Additionally, this update adds in the new limited-time Ghost Hunt mode for this first phase. This is where two teams of three players enter a "spooky" version of the Urban Central Arena and you need to trap the ball with a proton stream power-up. It sounds amusing, so let's take a look at me attempting to play it using the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 on Ubuntu 19.04:
This mode is absolute madness, it's more frantic than any other in the game and it's a huge amount of fun. Having to keep the ball in the opposing team's area for two seconds to score can be quite tricky.
You can find Rocket League on Steam.
I honestly think the day I die, it will be with a gamepad in my hands playing Rocket League. Does that make me sad? If that happens, I want "died doing what he loved" written on my tomb stone.
