Ready to start your engines? Earlier this year, fans were thrilled to learn that the vehicular-based soccer phenomenon from developer Psyonix, Rocket League, will soon be going free-to-play on all platforms. Max Parker from Rocket League’s community team has finally provided audiences with information as to when and what to expect from the game’s newest upcoming update before it hits the field.
