Rocket League developer Psyonix has revealed that it’s vehicle based football game will be moving to the Epic Games Store and becoming free-to-play on all systems.
Rocket League will also move from Valve’s PC distribution platform Steam to its counterpart, the Epic Games Store. While Steam Rocket League owners will still be able to play and download new updates, new PC players will need to download Rocket League from the Epic Games Store.
Of course, you’ll need an Epic Games account as well, if you’re on PC. In fact, there are advantages of having an Epic Games account for every Rocket League player, be it on PC, PS4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch.

It’s also “revamping and improving” Tournaments and Challenges.
Here’s how the studio explains:
“Rocket League will also make its debut on the Epic Games Store when it goes free to play. It will be identical to the version on other platforms and will feature cross-platform play with all Rocket League platforms.
Once Rocket League goes free to play, anyone who already owns it on any platform (including Steam) will be able to play the game with full support for future updates and features. However, the Steam version will no longer be available to download for new players.”
For or anyone WHO purchased the sport before the free version kicks off, Psyonix is providing variety of in-game rewards, together with “all Rocket League-branded DLC free before unengaged to play.”Anyone WHO has purchased the sport antecedently are going to be rewarded with inheritance standing, which means they’ll receive all Rocket League branded DLC antecedently free without charge, a title that displays the year the sport was purchased, over two hundred things are going to be upgraded to inheritance standing and new cosmetic things are going to be obtainable. Once obtainable on the Epic Games Store, Steam players are going to be unable to transfer the sport from the launcher. No specific date of once the transition can happen has been given as of however.
