Psyonix announced truly surprising news regarding Rocket League, its football game with cars that will turn five this year. The title will become free-to-play on all platforms, none excluded.
As it is obvious, the development team has already ensured that everyone who bought the game when it was (and still is) paid will receive many items, including:
- All DLCs with brands released so far
- The title “Est. 20XX” which shows the year the player started playing Rocket League
- Legacy quality for over 200 common objects
- Golden Cosmos Boost
- Ten-Gold wheels
- Banner “Huntress”
Also, if you played online before the announcement, you will receive the Faded Cosmos boost.
On PC when the game becomes free-to-play it will no longer be downloadable on Steam, but only on the Epic Games Store. According to Psyonix, copies on the Valve store will get full support for future updates, and you will be able to continue doing your first things, like playing with your friends or buying items.
Cross-platform inventories and cross-progression are also arriving on all platforms by connecting an Epic account to not really lose anything. Progress on the Rocket Pass will also be transferable. All inventory obtained by players to date will remain available.
Rocket League is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
