Rocket League is about to open for free. Developer Psyonix, owned by Epic Games, has announced that its football racing multiplayer video game will cancel its paid platform at the end of the summer of 2020. At that time, Rocket League will also switch from Valve’s PC publishing platform Steam to its corresponding Epic Games Store. Although Steam Rocket League owners can still play and download the new updates, new PC players will need to download Rocket League from the Epic Games Store.
Of course, if you use a PC, you also need an Epic Games account. In fact, it is good to provide an Epic Games account for every Rocket League player, whether on PC, PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch. This is because Psyonix is free to provide Rocket League with cross-platform progress, which means your progress, project and competitive ranking will continue to other platforms. It is also “remodeling and improving” competitions and challenges.
In order to reward those who paid a lot of money for the purchase of Rocket League, Psyonix will grant them “old version” status and other cosmetic upgrades. This means downloadable content for all Rocket League brands, including seven cars and three DLC packs: Supersonic Fury, Chariot Revenge, and Chaos Run. You will also get special wheels, boosters and banners. More than 200 products will be upgraded to “traditional” quality. The only thing to note is that you must play Rocket League online for free before you can make a free transition.
The Rockets League will play free games later in the summer of 2020. Psyonix expressed hope to hear news about new features, content and more in the “coming months.”
