Psynonix announced a couple of months back that it'd make Rocket League free-to-play, and we at last know when it'll make the switch.
On September 23, Rocket League goes free-to-play with a large update, including a redesigned Tournament and Challenge system, a new Rocket Pass, new item packs, and a new event called Llama-Rama. First and foremost, the barrier of entry is gone. Regardless, new Rocket League players will have an extra battle-car to buy if they so desire. It'll be free on PC, too, but it will no longer be on Steam.
Rocket League will also be added to the Epic Games Store on September 23. will also receive a $10 coupon for use in the store.
On top of that, Rocket League will add a revamped Tournaments mode and refined Challenges. For example, Psyonix confirmed that the game won't have integration with Epic Game Store mods at launch.
Psyonix has been revealing the new features over the past few weeks.
This title has a decent sports scene across the globe, and being free should encourage more players to explore its intricacies. The official transition from Steam to the Epic Games Store was also noted and will occur on September 23, when the game will become fully available to everyone, for free.
Psyonix is also giving "Legacy Status Items" to those of us who already own the game tomorrow. It will launch alongside the new Season 1 Rocket Pass. Details on that are forthcoming.
