Radical Summer was an in-game event, kicking off on June 10, 2019. The 9-week event will feature free items, new Premium Licensed DLCs, limited-time game modes, and more!

The event was split into three celebrations of the 1980s: Blockbusters, Culture, and Television. Each phase lasted three weeks. Similar to previous events, players could complete online matches to earn ‘Cassettes’ and redeem them for in-game '80s-themed items. Radical Summer's Event Store changed for each phase, bringing in new items each time. At the end of the event, the "redemption period" gave players a week to redeem Cassettes for any items they missed.[1][2]

Franchises Of The '80s

The following are every '80s franchise that was featured in Radical Summer:

  • Ghostbusters
  • Knight Rider
  • Back to the Future
  • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
  • The Goonies
  • Karate Kid
  • DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender
  • WWE

Golden Eggs also returned as part of Radical Summer, and they contained items from the Elevation, Victory, Turbo, and Nitro Crates. Up to five Golden Eggs could be acquired per player with Cassettes for each phase of the event.
