Rocket League is getting a Stranger Things overlay as part of its Halloween event, Haunted Hallows. Starting Oct. 14, players will get themed add-ons for their cars as well as a spooky new arena to play in, Rocket League said Wednesday after posting a teaser on YouTube. The trailer shows the Rocket League cars entering the Upside Down as Stranger Things theme music plays and the Mind Flayer appears.

Rocket League says it's transformed its Farmstead Arena into the Upside Down from Netflix's Stranger Things, added fall-themed items and also has "top secret wares developed by the Hawkins National Laboratory that will turn your Battle-Car creations up to 11."
