We are aware that the Rocket League will be free-to-play this summer. On September, Psyonix, the game developer announced that the vehicular soccer game will be free-to-play from September 23rd.
Rocket League was launched back on 7 July 2015 for the PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.
The game will be making its debut of on Epic Games Store. The digital store is owned by the parent company of Psyonix, Epic Games which took the studio the previous year. After 23rd September, the game will be removed from Steam. However, the developers stated that regardless of which PC version you have, you will get complete support, updates and feature which also means cross-platform play. Well, you will not be able to get the game for free on Steam.
However, if you purchase the game on Steam then Psyonix will be giving away you some in-game legacy rewards. The rewards include the Rocket League branded DLC and more than in-game items which can be used to customize your vehicle like antennas, decals and wheels. Psyonix also confirmed that the existing players will be having access to the cross-platform progress link, this will allow them to link their platforms to the Epic Games Account. You will then be able to carry your progress to a different game platform.
Along with the introduction of the free-to-play model, Psyonix further confirmed that Rocket League will no more need the PS4 and Nintendo Switch players to buy the subscription to play the game online. Unfortunately, the Xbox One owners will require the Xbox Live Gold membership to play the game.
