Psyonix has announced that Rocket League is going free to play later this summer! The upcoming update will be the biggest one yet and will include major changes to the Tournaments and Challenge systems. Additionally, it will also add cross-platform progression for players’ item inventory, Rocket Pass progress, and Competitive Rank, by linking to an Epic Games Account.
Speaking of Epic Games, Rocket League will also make its debut on the Epic Games Store when it goes free to play. It will be identical to the version on other platforms and will feature cross-platform play with Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Unfortunately those platforms does not include Steam. The Steam version will no longer be available to download for new players.
Anyone who has played Rocket League online prior to the game going f2p will be rewarded with Legacy status, which includes:
- All Rocket League-branded DLC released before f2p
“Est. 20XX” title that displays the year when the player first started playing Rocket League
200+ Common items upgraded to “Legacy” quality
Golden Cosmos Boost
Huntress Player Banner
Additionally, players who played Rocket League before today’s announcement will receive an extra item, the Faded Cosmos Boost. These items will be awarded to player accounts when the game goes free to play.
