Rocket League Going F2P This Summer, Will Only Be On Epic Games Store
Originally conceived as a free-to-play game, and free-to-play in China, Rocket League will be making that same leap worldwide later this summer, Psyonix revealed in a blog post today. Sometimes, even our wildest predictions come true ...
Already available on Steam, the game will also launch on the Epic Games Store when it goes F2P. When that happens, players who are already on Steam will still be able to play, with full cross-play between the two platforms, but no new users will be able to download the game from Steam. If you own the game before the F2P launch, you'll receive all DLC released up to that point and various cosmetics, and all your progress and inventory from Steam will be carried over to the EGS edition of the game.
Psyonix recently produced an infographic to celebrate the game's fifth anniversary and boast of having 75 million players, five billion matches played, and 29 billion goals scored.
As for what the free-to-play launch will mean for the game itself, Psyonix promises that the core gameplay will be unchanged, but the menus will be improved and the team is "revamping and improving major features like Tournaments and Challenges." You can learn more about Rocket League's free-to-play transition via the FAQ on the game's new F2P website.
