Rocket League‘s first limited-time event, Haunted Hallows, kicks off later today, October 16th, at 5 p.m. PDT.
The event runs until November 6th at 10 a.m. PT and introduces a new limited-time currency called Candy Corn. This new currency will drop at the end of online matches and can be used to claim new Halloween Items, Decryptors, and Locked “Haunted Hallows” Crates.
As mentioned above, this event will be the first time that players are able to earn Decryptors, a new item that will allow players to unlock any of the game’s crates without having to use a key. However, any items found inside crates opened with Decryptors cannot be traded.
As well as the Decryptors, developer Psyonix is introducing a third way to obtain the new Halloween crates. On top of earning them in matches or trading Candy Corn for them, players can also straight up purchase the crates using real money. Halloween crates bought using this method will not require a key to open, but cannot be traded. However, while the actual crates cannot be traded, the items found inside can be traded after seven days.
Finally, the developer notes that the items found inside the Halloween crate will not be updated next year, giving players a chance to earn anything they missed next time the event goes live.
Rocket League is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
