When something strange is happening in your neighborhood and you need to call a team for busting ghosts, you might need to wait for them to finish up a game of car-driven soccer first. Psyonix has just revealed that Rocket League is once again doing a crossover with the Ghostbusters franchise as the iconic Ecto-1 is making its way back to the game as well as a number of brand new additions.
Via blog post, the San Diego-based video game developer announced today that they will be bringing in the Ecto-1 Bundle which includes the return of the Ecto-1 Car, Ecto-1 Wheel, and Ecto-1 Engine Audio. This bundle also includes brand new additions such as the new signature white Ecto-1 Reel Life Decal, weathered Ecto-1 Reel Afterlife Decal, Ecto-1 BK Wheel, Spirits Boost, and RTV Trail customization items.
For players that previously purchased the Ecto-1 Car in years past, there will be an upgrade bundle to purchase that features the new items. In addition, players will also be able to purchase the car and/or all items featured in the bundle separately. The bundle goes live today and will be available to purchase in Rocket League’s in-game Item Shop until November 22 and will cost 1100 Credits. Additionally, the fan-favorite Stay Puft Goal Explosion is making a return and will be available for the first time in Painted versions in the Rocket League in-game Item Shop beginning November 11 for a limited time.
The Ecto-1 vehicle from the iconic series made its debut in Rocket League back in 2019 and returned during the game’s Halloween event in 2020. While All Hallow’s Eve is currently behind us (or simply far ahead of us depending on how you look at it), the brand Ghostbusters film, Ghostbusters: Afterlife premiering on November 19, it seems like a perfect time to bring the car at the center of the film’s marketing back to the high octane sports game. Rocket League is no stranger to crossovers like this, most recently seeing vehicles from Batman making a return to the game for its Haunted Hallows Event this year as well as adding 007’s Aston Martin Valhalla, which can be seen in the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die.
The Ecto-1 Bundle in Rocket League is available starting today and will be available until November 22. Rocket League is available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
No Mr. Bond, I expect you to play!
