Psyonix Team never fails to surprise Rocket League players, and the latest infomration that the developer has revealed will definitely make PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch users happy — especially those who play the game online.
As revealed by the developers earlier today, the popular "soccar" title will no longer require players to have a PlayStation Plus or a Nintendo Switch Online subscription — which means that anyone who has access to an internet connection will still be able to play the game online.
In July of this year, Psyonix Team revealed that Rocket League would become a free-to-play title this summer. The cherry on top was that the game would also be including all of the DLC that had been previously released; seriously, Psyonix Team never fails to surprise fans.
According to the developers, they will be rolling out an update on all current-gen platforms around mid-September, and that Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 players will be able to play the game online for free once Rocket League's free to play launches shortly after the upcoming update becomes available.
As of this writing, it is yet unknown whether Rocket League will still require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to be played online, but it is rather unusual to see that Psyonix Team didn't even address this on their official website — which may disappoint more than a few Xbox players.
Unfortunately, Psyonix Team doesn't reveal the exact date in which they will be releasing the new update, nor the date in which Rocket League will finally become available to play for free, but it really seems like it won't be delayed, and that the popular "soccar" title will be free to play this month.
