Although Rocket League is the blending of Football and Cars, another essential aspect of this gameplay experience is the music. So, to celebrate the ever-evolving soundtrack, developers are introducing a new event called Neon Nights!
Neon Nights will include exciting Challenges, Golden Moons to unlock tons of cosmetics, a new chaotic LTM, and unlockable Items featuring GRIMES.
Here's everything you need to know about Rocket League's upcoming Neon Nights event.
The Neon Nights event featuring Galactic Space Princess by Grimes will arrive on Wednesday, January 26 at 9am PST.
The event will be available until February 8, 2022.

New challenges will be added daily, and completing these challenges will allow players to unlock Event Items:

Golden Moons work just like Golden Gifts from Frosty Fest. Complete the Challenge up to five times to earn Golden Moons, then open them in your Inventory to unlock items.
LTM Heatseeker Ricochet
As part of the Neon Nights event, a new LTM will be available in the Rocket Labs: Heatseeker Ricochet. In Heatseeker, every time you hit the ball it automatically heads toward the center of your opponent's goal.
It's like an Aimbot for Rocket League. The longer the volley of shots continues between your team and your opponents, the faster the ball travels.
Developers promise this mode will be chaotic, and it certainly sounds like it'll shake things up!
Lunar Year Celebration
Rocket League will celebrate the Lunar New Year as well, offering the Year of the Tiger Free Bundle in the Item Shop featuring the fearless Tiny Tiger Topper and Tyger Decal.
