Rocket League goes free-to-play this summer

Epic Games Store launch and cross-progression also incoming.

Rocket League

Rocket League will go free-to-play later this summer, developer Psyionix Studios announced.

At the same time it goes free-to-play, Rocket League will release on the Epic Games Store for PC. This version of the game will be identical to every other version and feature cross-platform play, including between Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Users who already own Rocket League on any platform will be able to continue playing the game with full support for future updates and features. The Steam version will also receive these updates, but no longer be available to download for new players.

All inventory earned by users will remain available. Free-to-play will also introduce cross-platform progression, allowing users to bring items, Rocket Pass progress, and Competitive Rank to every platform via an Epic Games Account.

All users who have played Rocket League online before the launch of free-to-play will also be rewarded “Legacy” status, which includes the following:

  • All Rocket League-branded downloadable content released before free-to-play
  • “Est. 20XX” title that displays the first year you played Rocket League
  • 200-plus Common items upgraded to “Legacy” quality
  • Golden Cosmos Boost
  • Dieci-Oro Wheels
  • Huntress Player Banner

Additionally, all users who have played Rocket League online before today’s announcement will also receive the “Faded Cosmos Boost.”

Rocket League is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam.
