Psyonix announced that Rocket League will be transitioning to a free-to-play model by the end of this Summer, stating that this will be a new chapter for Rocket League.
The core gameplay will remain the same; however, new tournament feature, challenges and cross-progression system will be added, too.
The free-to-play version will go live when the game launches in Epic Games Store in the coming weeks. Players will be able to cross-play with players from other platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam; nevertheless, Rocket League will be taken out from the store later.
Existing players, however, can still get updates and play on Steam and everyone will be granted with “Legacy” status along with the exclusive cosmetic items as follows:
- 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
