Rocket League was released in 2015
Rocket League was originally released on July 7, 2015 for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4. It later made it to Xbox One, macOS, Linux, and Nintendo Switch. In all these cases, the monetization of the video game was the standard. That is, it was a video game for which a single payment was made, and all the content of the base game could be accessed, excluding expansion packs and extra cosmetic items.
From September 23, Rocket League will become a free title to download and play, although it will have a different monetization system, which will depend on the players buying and paying for cosmetic items.
