Rocket League is Becoming Free To Play
Not to mention "the biggest update yet" to go along with it.
The ever popular 'soccar' game (soccer + cars) is removing its US$19.99 (~RM85) price tag and becoming free to play, according to their developers Psyonix. There's no confirmed date as of yet, but it will be sometime this summer. Along with the price removal, the game will also be removed from the Steam store for new players, and will instead be movied to the Epic Games Store.
To usher in an influx of new players once it goes free to play, Rocket League is also receiving a big content update, not to mention rewards for players who have paid for the game. Existing players will receive a "Legacy" status, which includes:
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
Huntress Player Banner
Faded Cosmos Boost (only available to players before this news was released)
All items will be released concurrently with the shift to free to play, along with changes to the Tournament and Challenge systems. More will be revealed as we inch closer to the fateful date, but it certainly looks like a good thing so far! Rocket League is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox.
