Rocket League will go free to play next week

Earlier this year, Psyonix announced that Rocket League would be going free to play this summer. Well, as summer technically ends next week the studio has just barely squeaked in the date for when Rocket League goes to free to play, and that will be on September 23rd. To mark this occasion Psyonix will be hosting an event called Llama-Rama though what kind of event that will be remains to be seen. More details will be given soon after the transition to free to play.


From tomorrow there will be an update to cross platform progression so players can link their Epic Games accounts to other platform accounts. Tomorrow’s update will also add Heatseeker in private matches, a new bot difficulty, new quick chats, a higher number of items for Trade Up, new Merc hitbox, achievement changes, the removal of solo standard, and achievement changes.

From September 23rd, Rocket League will be available on the Epic Games Store. In addition, Season One for the free to play launch will start, competitive tournaments will begin, and new game wide challenges will be added as well. There will be two starter packs to purchase as well which are listed below.

Endo Starter Pack

  • Endo

  • Gaiden Wheels (Grey)

  • Neo-Thermal Boost

  • Friction Trail

  • 500 Credits

Jäger Pack

  • Jäger 619 (Titanium White)

  • Apparatus Wheels (Titanium White)

  • Toon Goal Explosion (Titanium White)

  • 1000 Credits

Rocket League will no longer require a PlayStation Plus subscription on PlayStation or Nintendo Switch Online subscription in order to play online on those platforms. You will, however, still need Xbox Live Gold if you’re on Xbox One. This is, of course, entirely in keeping with each platform’s policy on free-to-play games. Sony made and exception for free-to-play games at the start of the generation, ensuring that they don’t require a PS+ sub to let people hop online and play, and Nintendo followed suit when they launched Nintendo Switch Online. Microsoft, however, has been consistent in requiring Xbox Live Gold subs for all online play.
