The Rocket League Haunted Hallows event will be launching tomorrow, bringing some iconic Ghostbusters items to the game. And yes, you can unlock the iconic Ecto-1 vehicle — but you're going to have to buy it.

Rocket League has now completed its transition to the Epic Games Store ecosystem. As part of this change, the game will be hosting several themed events and a new one has just arrived. Much like the previously-announced Fortnite Llama-Rama event, Haunted Hallows will allow players to unlock some pretty cool Ghostbusters gear.

Check out the super-spooky trailer for the Rocket League Haunted Hallows event to see all of the new goodies on the way!
