Previously, we reported a significant news update from Rocket League’s website where developer Psyonix promised that their competitive vehicular-based sports title would finally be going free-to-play sometime around mid-September. Alongside the FTP update, brand new content and major changes to the game’s overall online structure regarding tournaments, challenges, and progression were also stated to be implemented.
Today, it was finally unveiled that Rocket League will be free for all platform users starting September 23rd, however, with so many massive changes going forward the developer has decided to split its content into two updates that will accommodate for veterans and newcomers. The split update will help smoothly transition both audiences into a new age of Rocket League. Alongside the latest news, Psyonix proudly debuted a new official cinematic trailer for the game you can watch right here!
In preparation for what is arguably the title’s biggest game-changing update to date, Psyonix has revealed that Rocket League will be receiving its first of two updates as soon as tomorrow, September 16th. The first update will include a way for the current player base to link up to their Epic Game’s accounts for the purpose of cross-platform progression. Longtime Rocket League players will also receive special customizable legacy content. On top of this, the title will finally become part of Epic’s Support A Creator program.
As for the second update, upon going live next week on September 23rd, Rocket League will arrive on the Epic Game Store for free and release its new set of tournaments and challenges. The latest event dubbed as the “Llama-Rama” will also begin with the second update. As soon as Rocket League is free to download on the eShop, we will be sure to let you all know!
