Psyonix has announced that Rocket League will be going free to play, five years after the game was first released. The game will be receiving a major update later this summer, after which the game will be completely free to download.
The update will be the game’s biggest update yet, with menus being overhauled to make navigation easier, and major features will receive key improvements like Tournaments and Challenges.
Your progress will carry over to the new version of the game, and existing players will be rewarded with “Legacy status” items, including:
- All Rocket League-branded DLC packs 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
In addition, if you’ve played online before this announcement, you will also receive the Faded Cosmos Boost. Legacy rewards will be granted once the free to play version launches later this summer.
