Rocket League is back for a radical summer event that pays homeage to the movies, television and culture that was oh-so awesome in the 1980s. The event will begin on June 10th and will run for 9 weeks. Each event will be broken into three-week blocks celebrating some of the most iconic pop culture themes of the 80s.
According to Rocket League developer Psyonix: “Similar to previous events, play Online Matches to earn ‘Cassettes’ and redeem them for in-game, ’80s-themed items all summer long. Radical Summer’s Event Store will change for each phase of Radical Summer, bringing in new items for your Battle-Car. And don’t worry, at the end of the event, we’ll give you a week to redeem Cassettes for any items you may have missed.”
You’ll have a chance to pick up mixtapes and unlock sweet rides such as the Ecto-1 car from Ghostbusters, the Delorean from Back to the Future along with KITT from Knight Rider.
Here are the start and end dates of Radical Summer’s three event phases. Each phase will begin at 10 a.m. PDT (5 p.m. UTC) on their respective start dates:
- ’80s Blockbusters: June 10 – July 1
- ’80s Culture: July 1 – July 22
- ’80s Television July 22 – August 12
