The Rocket League-worthy hero is back: Or, at least, his cars are. Psyonix’s great car football game hosts a Haunted Hallows event every year for Halloween, and this time it’s Batman-themed.
In this period the Rumble gametype is becoming Gotham City Rumble, with power ups themed around Bat-stuff. So there’s the clown’s boxing glove, Harley’s hammer, poison ivy vines (used as a grape), and so on. Arena Beckwith Park is also getting a facelift in the form of the Gotham Knight version, which includes various Bat-nodes in the background.
As always the event comes with a slew of challenges that will unlock items themed after various Bat-villains: the Joker has a Dominus decal and a decent ‘hahaha’ boost, Harley Quinn has wheels and a topper , Poison Ivy is seeing an organic-boost, and you can change your player title to the Dark Knight. If you really want.
Finally, the Batmobiles return to the item shop. I don’t know why they weren’t there anyway (they’ve been in the game for years now) but you can once again buy tumblrs from the Tim Burton Batmobile (yeah baby!), Nolan movies (eh, that’s fine), or Battleflake-mobile (no thanks). Each comes with a target explosion that shows Bat-signals from their respective eras. The Haunted Hallows event starts later today.
