Radical Summer - '80s Culture Live Now Image

Radical Summer is motoring into its second phase: a celebration of '80s culture. That means there are brand new items in the Event Store featuring the tightest trends from the 1980s. Pixelated Wheels? Totally. A VCR topper? Duh. An enormous cell phone? Like, for sure! Plus there's an all new limited-time game mode called Spike Rush that you'll dig big time.

To celebrate Rocket League's 4th Birthday, we're taking the action back to Throwback Stadium, but gameplay is taking a sharp turn. Radical Summer's second phase introduces the all new limited-time game mode Spike Rush. In this 3v3 mode, every player has the Spike power-up from Rumble. Players who have possession of the ball lose all boost, but can disengage their spikes to perform some wicked shots or passing plays. But be careful! The ball carrier is demolished on contact. We can't wait to see what smooth moves you're able to pull off in this wild mode.

Be on the lookout for the new Totally Awesome Crate, which will start dropping today. The Crate itself fits perfectly with Radical Summer's '80s style. As for what's inside, check out the new hot hatchback Fennec pictured below. The Totally Awesome Crate contains over a dozen customizations. In-game items from this crate are subject to the same drop rates as our previous Crates, which you can find here.

Radical Summer's Culture phase will be live until July 22, so jump into Online Matches, start earning Cassettes, enjoy Spike Rush, and stay radical!
