Rocket League as free to play involves a grouping of accounts at the time of registration, but with advantages for the first to download it.
Rocket League will become a free video game (free to play) around the world starting this September 23 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, where it can be downloaded exclusively at the Epic Games Store. Those who get the title of Psyonix during the first month will get a gift of 10 euros to spend in that store.
Promotion: 10 euros free for Epic Games Store for a limited time
The promotion is very clear: from this September 23 to October 23, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. (CEST), all users with an Epic Games account who download Rocket League in the Epic Games Store will receive, in addition to the game free, an Epic coupon valued at 10 euros that we can use to get other titles and accessories that have a minimum price of 14.99 euros.
Rocket League becomes free to play
In addition, from this September 23, two new item packs will be inaugurated in the new store: Endo Starter Pack (Includes 500 credits, Endo, gray Gaiden wheel, Neothermal accelerator and Friction trail) and Jäger Pack (Includes 1000 credits, Titanium White Jäger 619, Titanium White Toon Goal Explosion, and Titanium White Apparatus Wheel. Purchase valid with your Epic coupon!). All the information of these batches is broken down in the source attached to the foot of the news.
No PS Plus or Nintendo Switch Online to play online; cross game confirmed
It should be noted that, once Rocket League becomes free to play, it will not be necessary to have an active account on Nintendo Switch Online or PlayStation Plus, the subscription services of Nintendo Switch and PS4, so playing in any mode will be totally free unless we want to buy cosmetic content packages. On Xbox, you do need Xbox Live GOLD to play online.
When in doubt about how cross-play will work starting September 23, here’s what players need to do to link their current accounts to an Epic account. No relevant data will be lost.
