Rocket League is going free to play later this summer

By Sean Carey,
Rocket League will be going free to play later this summer, according to Psyonix. A new update rolling out soon will introduce cross-platform progression, a newly designed menu system and a revamp of features such as Tournaments and Challenges.


The Psyonix team hasn't specified a date for when Rocket League will officially go free to play but states that more information will be coming soon. Those who have played the game before the game goes free to play will be entitled to some extra rewards. "Legacy Status" will be granted to these players, which includes a bunch of free DLC. This includes:
  • All Rocket League-branded DLC packs released before free to play
  • "Est. 20XX" title that displays the first year you played Rocket League
  • 200+ Common items upgraded to "Legacy" quality
  • Golden Cosmos Boost
  • Dieci-Oro Wheels
  • Huntress Player Banner
Players who have jumped into an online match will also be granted the Faded Cosmos Boost. These rewards will be dished out to players when Rocket League goes free to play. All existing content in players' inventories will be unaffected and can still be accessed after the update.

This news means that if you haven't bought Rocket League yet, you can grab the game's trophies for free. Rocket League has a total of 88 trophies to unlock. The base game — with its 36 trophies — will take around 15 to 20 hours to complete. Here is the full list of Rocket League trophies.
