Rocket League, one of the most popular multiplayer games out there – that somehow successfully managed to fuse football with cars – will be going free to play.
This move will also mark the game’s transition from Steam to the Epic Games Store. If you’ve purchased the game on Steam, you’ll be able to continue playing the game there, but if you’re a newcomer who wants to try it out for free, you’ll have to pick it up from the Epic Games Store. If you’ve already purchased the game before it goes free to play, you’ll earn the following in game items:
– All Rocket League-branded DLC released before free to play
– “Est. 20XX” title that displays the year when the player first started playing Rocket League
– 200+ Common items upgraded to “Legacy” quality
– Golden Cosmos Boost
– Dieci-Oro Wheels
– Huntress Player Banner
Developer Psyonix claims gameplay will continue to remain the same with the addition of cosmetic items, cross-platform progression and a Battle Pass.
