Rocket League is going free to play next week

Rocket League is going free to play next week”

Epic Games acquired the developers of Rocket League, Psyonix, in May 2019 for an undisclosed amount.

The wait is nearly over as Rocket League goes free-to-play next week, which means it's about to leave Steam for good.

Now, the game is finally being made free for players who do not own it already.

Psynonix announced a couple of months back that it'd make Rocket League free-to-play, and we at last know when it'll make the switch. Current Rocket League owners will also receive their Legacy Status and all of the items and goodies that come along with it. A quick look at the Rocket League website shows a similar lack of detail. This update is going to be launching a bunch of new content for players to enjoy! All players will have three weekly challenges at their disposal, while those with Rocket Pass Premium will be able to overcome three extra challenges each week.

New Season, competitive tournaments, and challenges will also occur, including new item packs that will include "sick" items for new and veteran players. Psyonix said it'll soon reveal more details about a Llama-Rama event, which'll start soon after the free-to-play move.

KitGuru Says: The changes coming to Rocket League this year are massive, particularly when it comes to those who have been playing the game on Steam for years. From new ranks, to streamlined seasons, to new challenges, to the overhauled tournaments.

Rocket League is a high-powered hybrid of arcade-style soccer and vehicular mayhem with easy-to-understand controls and fluid, physics-driven competition.

In an announcement made this afternoon, Psyonix confirmed that Rocket League will be going free to play on September 23rd at 4PM BST. Starting that weekend, jump into Rocket League Llama-Rama to earn awesome in-game rewards for both Rocket League and Fortnite. Once you've done so, you can access the Rocket League items you've unlocked across all platforms. TechRaptor's creator code on EGS is Techraptor if you wish to support the site.
