Rocket League will go free to play this summer, Psyonix has announced.

Rocket League is going free to play this summer, and will no longer be made available to purchase on Steam and it will be leaving the service for the Epic Games Store. The studio was acquired by Epic Games back in May of last year.

According to the official announcement, the core gameplay will remain the same, but the main menus will be refined. You can expect revamped and improved Tournaments and Challenges, and cross-platform progression.

Once the game goes free to play, you will be able to bring your inventory, Rocket Pass progress, and competitive rank to any platform where you play the game by using your Epic Games Account.

Rocket League will release on the Epic Games Store on PC the same time it goes free to play. This version of the game will be identical to the version found on other platforms and will feature cross-platform play anywhere you play, including between the Epic Games Store and Steam.

Anyone who has played between now and when it goes free to play will be rewarded with Legacy status, which includes:

  • All Rocket League-branded DLC 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 the announcement, you will also receive the Faded Cosmos Boost.
