Rocket League goes free to play this summer
It feels like it was just yesterday when Rocket League launched on PlayStation as a PlayStation Plus title. We were overwhelmed by the love (and number of players) who hit the field and played the high-octane hybrid of driving and soccer. Now, five years later, we’re ready to start the next chapter of Rocket League. It all starts when it goes free to play this summer!
Rocket League will be completely free to download and enjoy later this summer following the game’s biggest update yet. In this update, the menus will be overhauled to make them easier to navigate, and major features will receive key improvements like Tournaments and Challenges. Stay tuned for more information on these feature updates, as there’s a lot to reveal!
Whether you’ve been playing Rocket League from day one or you just picked it up this year, you won’t have to worry about losing your inventory. Your items will follow you to the free to play update. Plus, anyone who has played Rocket League online before the launch of free to play will be rewarded with Legacy status, which includes:
- All Rocket League-branded DLC packs released before free to play
- “Est. 20XX” title that displays the first year you played Rocket League
- 200+ Common items upgraded to “Legacy” quality
- Golden Cosmos Boost
- Dieci-Oro Wheels
- Huntress Player Banner
In addition, if you’ve played online before today’s announcement, you will also receive the Faded Cosmos Boost. Legacy rewards will be granted once the free to play version launches later this summer.
It’s been an amazing five years on PlayStation, and we’re gearing up for five more and beyond! We can’t wait to introduce Rocket League to a whole new audience. Be sure to visit RocketLeague.com and follow us on Twitter for all the news as we approach Rocket League free to play!
