Rocket League will no longer require paid subscriptions from PS4 and Switch owners with free version release

Studio Psyonix has shared new details about the upcoming transition of its multiplayer arcade game Rocket League to the shareware distribution model.

Psyonix plans to merge the schedule of seasons, tournaments and battle passes, add new titles (in particular, divide the Grand Champion rank into three different ones) and rework the training mode.

The authors also confirmed that with the transfer of the Rocket League to a shareware model, PS4 and Nintendo Switch owners will not need a PlayStation Plus and Nintendo Switch Online subscription to access the game’s multiplayer, respectively.

Whether such an amnesty awaits the owners of Xbox One, who need an active Xbox Live Gold subscription to participate in competitive battles, the developers have not specified.

As for the timing of the update release, Psyonix promises to be in time by mid-September. The transition of the Rocket League to the shareware distribution model will happen “soon after” the release of the patch.

Recall that with the premiere of the free version, Rocket League will disappear from sale on Steam. Since May 2019, Psyonix has been owned by Epic Games, so the PC edition of the game will become a permanent Epic Games Store exclusive on time.

Rocket League was released in July 2015 on PC (Steam) and PS4 and subsequently appeared on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. As with the recent Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, the game made its first breaks with its PlayStation Plus giveaway.
