Rocket League going free-to-play “later this summer”

Developer Psyonix’s four-wheeled footie phenomenon Rocket League will be transitioning from paid title to free-to-play game on all platforms “later this summer”, and, at the same time, it will become exclusive to the Epic Games Store for all new PC players.

Since its launch back in 2015, Rocket League has, despite the myriad monetisation tactics introduced over its lifespan – from a now-defunct loot box system to its replacement online store, and a Fortnite-style battle pass – been sold as a premium title with an upfront fee.

At some point “later this summer”, however, Rocket League will go entirely free-to-play – a shift that will be accompanied by a major new update introducing, among other things, changes to Tournaments and Challenge systems. Additionally, it will gain cross-platform progression for item inventories, Rocket Pass progress, and Competitive Rank, although these features will require players to create and link an Epic Games Account.
