What you need to know
- Rocket League is a popular vehicular soccer game.
- Developer Psyonix announced that it is going free-to-play later this summer.
- Previous owners will receive Legacy status, all prior DLC packs, 200 items, and more.
Once Rocket League goes free-to-play it will be unavailable to download through Steam. Instead, PC players will need to download the game through the Epic Games Store. Epic bought developer Psyonix last year, so the move isn't all that surprising. The Epic Games Store version will be identical to the versions on other platforms and will support cross-play.
Psyonix stresses that the core gameplay will remain the same, but Tournaments and Challenges are being revamped. Cross-platform progression will also be introduced if you decide to download it on another system. It is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Anyone who owned the game before the launch of the free-to-play version will be upgraded to Legacy status and receive the following:
- All Rocket League-branded DLC released before free to play
- "Est. 20XX" title that displays the first year you played Rocket League
- 200+ Common items upgraded to "Legacy" quality
- Golden Cosmos Boost
- Dieci-Oro Wheels
- Huntress Player Banner
Psyonix did not give an exact date as to when Rocket League will go free-to-play, but it should be in the coming months before summer ends. If you're still curious about what this means for Rocket League, Psyonix has a handy FAQ on its website.
