Psyonix have recently announced that their banner game will become free to play. Rocket League is a cross-platform sports game where players control cars and play very large scale soccer – or Soccar.
Psyonix is releasing Rocket League as free to play, as well as introducing a new platform. The game will no longer be available to download on Steam.
With moves to free play, Psyonix have declared that their core gameplay will remain unchanged, however they plan to make the game easier to explore and navigate through refining the main menus, as well as improving their Tournaments and Challenges. Cross-platform progression will also be introduced for the first time, so you can bring all of your achievements with you whenever you play.
At the same time the game goes free to play, it will be released on another platform: the Epic Games Store on PC. The game itself will not change, and will also feature the ability to cross-platform play on the player’s usual platforms – including between the Epic Games Store and Steam.

“Est. 20XX” title that displays the first year you played Rocket League
200+ Common items upgraded to “Legacy” quality
