Many players are already pretty familiar with Rocket League — especially those who have already played the game and may even be slightly addicted to it — although there are a few players out there who may not know much about the popular "soccar" game developed by Psyonix Team.
Rocket League was originally released in 2015 for the PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows, although these days the game can also be played on the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. What's more, since January of 2019 the game has supported cross-platform gameplay, so players can team up with their friends regardless of the platform they're playing on.
Lately, the game can be purchased pretty cheap, and Psyonix Team has often given players some pretty neat discounts that make Rocket League even more accessible for those who have not yet had the chance to try it.
Today, however, Psyonix Team has some great news for everybody, as they have revealed that as of this summer, Rocket League will be completely free to play; making the game even more accessible than ever before.
According to Psyonix Team's official blog for Rocket League, the game will pretty much remain intact in terms of gameplay, but they will still be adding some new features that will make the game's menus easier to explore, while also tweaking some features pertaining to Tournaments and Challenges.
In order to reward those players who have played Rocket League online, before the game becomes a free-to-play title, Psyonix Team will be giving them all of the Rocket League-branded DLC, a "Est. 20xx" title that shows off the year each player began playing the game, 200+ Comon items that will be upgraded to "Legacy" quality, Golden Cosmos Boost, Dieici-Oro Wheels, and a Huntress Player Banner.
As if that wasn't enough, Rocket League will also be introducing cross-platform progression, so players will be able to freely play on any devices they want without losing any of their hard-earned progress. Unfortunately, the announcement only reveals that the game will become free later this summer, but they don't give us an official release date.
