You will no longer need to use PlayStation Plus or Switch Online to play Rocket League when it goes free-to-play.

Psyonix has announced that Rocket League players will no longer need to have a subscription to PlayStation Plus or Switch Online to play the game online.

The news was announced in a recent blog post on the official website.

Rocket League is going free to play this summer, and the core gameplay will remain the same, but the main menus will be refined.

An update on current platforms will be rolled out in the next few weeks around mid-September, and the launch of free-to-play will follow shortly after.

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.

It will release on the Epic Games Store on PC the same time it goes free to play. Once that occurs, it will no longer be made available for purchase on Steam.

This version 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 and receive some additional items.
