The PlayStation Blog announced today that Rocket League is going to a free-to-play model sometime this summer. We don’t yet know how this will impact the game, but we do know there are some big changes. The menus are being redesigned for ease of use, and tournaments and challenges are going to be updated with new improvements.
If you already purchased Rocket League or received it for PS Plus, your accomplishments won’t go unrecognized. Your Legacy status will allow you to keep your items. If you played online at any time before the transition, you’ll also receive all the DLC that was released up to that point, a title that shows “Est. 20XX” with the year you first played, over 200 common items will be boosted to legacy, the Golden Cosmos boost, the Deici-Oro Wheels, and the Huntress Player Banner after the game is free to play.
After five years, the team is excited about this change and for the future, and more details around the changes will be coming soon.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
