Following the initial reveal back in July, Developers Psyonix have announced that Rocket League will be going free-to-play on September 23 across all platforms like the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
The official announcement highlights a string of updates that start on September 16 and when it fully transitions to free-to-play, PS4 and Nintendo Switch owners will not need a subscription to PS Plus or Nintendo Switch Online to play the game.
The free-to-play update will include cross-platform progression along with revamping and improving various features like Tournaments and Challenges.
Existing players and anyone who will purchase the title before going free-to-play will be awarded with ‘Legacy’ status, which will include the following:
- 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
- Dieci-Oro Wheels
- Huntress Player Banner
September 23 also marks the date when Rocket League will make its way to the Epic Games Store and in celebration, you’ll receive a $10 Epic Games Store coupon along with 2 in-game items if you add the game to your library between September 23 until October 23.
