Rocket League celebrated its 5th anniversary this month and we’re ready to make 2020 the game’s biggest year yet. It all starts with Rocket League‘s free to play launch later this Summer!
The high-octane hybrid of action and driving is about to enter its next chapter, and everyone on Xbox One and beyond can enjoy Rocket League‘s gameplay for free. Plus, you can continue to team up with friends anywhere with full cross-platform play! That next chapter begins later this Summer with the game’s biggest update ever.
Once the update goes live, Rocket League will be available to download for free. Returning players will notice a fresh coat of paint as soon as they start the game. Menus are getting an overhaul to make the experience more manageable, and major features are being improved like Tournaments and game-wide Challenges to unlock items. We’re going to fully reveal these improvements as we get closer to launch, so stay tuned!
If you’re a veteran of Rocket League and you’re sitting on an impressive inventory of customization items, fear not! You’ll still be able to access your full inventory when the update goes live. And, we’re giving existing players something special. Anyone who has played Rocket League online before the launch of free to play will be rewarded with Legacy status, which 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
In addition, if you’ve played online before today’s announcement, you will also receive the Faded Cosmos Boost. Legacy rewards will be granted once the free to play version launches later this Summer.
