We already knew that Rocket League it would go free-to-play this summer and today, the game’s developer, Psyonix, announced that the mobile soccer game will be free-to-play on September 23.
The move to free-to-play also marks the debut of the upcoming game on the Epic Games Store, a digital store owned by Psyonix’s parent company, Epic Games, which acquired the studio last year. After September 23, the game will be removed from Steam; however, the study explains that no matter which PC version you own, both versions will continue to receive “full support for future updates and features,”
If you purchase the game before it goes free, Psyonix will give you some “legacy” rewards in the game, including all Rocket LeagueBranded DLC and over 200 in-game items used to customize your vehicles, such as antennas, decals and wheels. Psyonix has also confirmed that existing players will have access to the cross-platform progression link, allowing them to link their platforms to the Epic Games account and transfer their progress made to a different gaming platform.
In addition to switching to a free-to-play model, Psyonix also confirmed this earlier this month Rocket League will no longer require PS4 and Nintendo Switch players to have a subscription to play online. Xbox One owners, sadly, still need an Xbox Live Gold membership.
