Rocket League will go free to play next week

Back in July, Psyonix announced that its wildly popular socc-car game Rocket League would be going free-to-play.

For those unaware, Rocket League is a Vehicle Football (soccer) game that is developed and published by Psyonix.

Epic have been known to collaborate with many different companies and games with a Borderlands collaboration past year. There's also going to be an event called Llama-Rama to celebrate the F2P launch, but details, for now, are being held.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Rocket League will be going free to play and re-launching on the Epic Games Store.

Finally, starting on the 23rd of September, Rocket League will have a page on the Epic Games Store, although it won't be obtainable just yet.

As apart of the promotion, iFireMonkey noted that if you download Rocket League on the Epic Games store between September 23 - October 23.

As of now we do not what else Epic has planned up their sleeves. Furthermore, players that link their accounts for cross-progression will receive the Chopper EG Wheels for free.

Rocket League will no longer require a PlayStation Plus subscription on PlayStation or Nintendo Switch Online subscription in order to play online on those platforms. Sony made and exception for free-to-play games at the start of the generation, ensuring that they don't require a PS+ sub to let people hop online and play, and Nintendo followed suit when they launched Nintendo Switch Online. The update will go live tomorrow morning so if you're continuing to avoid the Epic Games launcher then you have only a scant few hours to get it on Steam before the listing is gone.
