You’re totally invited to Radical Summer, Rocket League’s summer-long celebration of all things 1980s. Grab your aviator shades and mixtapes, and prepare to go back in time to honour some of the most righteous movies, television and culture from one of the most influential decades of all time!
Radical Summer is the largest in-game event in Rocket League’s four-year history and kicks off on 10th June. The nine-week event will feature an assortment of free items, new Premium Licensed DLCs, limited-time game modes, and more (shhh, it’s a secret)!
Radical Summer is split into three different ’80s celebrations: Blockbusters, Culture, and Television. Each celebration lasts three weeks and features a collection of iconic, 1980s-inspired items and a unique game mode.
Similar to previous Rocket League in-game events, you can play Online Matches to earn ‘Cassettes’ and then redeem them for ’80s-themed items in the Event Store all summer long. Radical Summer’s Event Store will change with each phase of Radical Summer, bringing in new items for your Battle-Car. But don’t worry if you missed an item: the event stores from all three phases will reopen for an additional “last chance” week following the end of Radical Summer in August.
Here are the start and end dates of Radical Summer’s three event phases:
- ’80s Blockbusters: 10th June – 1st July
- ’80s Culture: 1st-22nd July
- ’80s Television 22nd July – 12th August
We’re excited to share everything that we’ve packed into Radical Summer. Get ready to jump back in time with us on 10th June. Until then, stay rad!
