Psyonix surprised us last July by announcing that his Rocket League, that eternal game that emerged in 2015 as one of the great revelations of that year (what could go wrong when mixing cars with football?), was going to make the leap to the model free-to-play coming soon. When it is going to be? September 23. Right now.
Therefore, with one week left, this study that did not have the same luck in 2008 with Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars On PS3, celebrate that important step with a CGI cinematic created for the occasion. And it’s cool.
There is a difference from this trailer to how the game looks in action, specifically for those details of the grass when passing at full speed with the cars or the effect of the fire. Hopefully we’ll see him someday looking similar in PS5 o Xbox Series X when its adaptation to the new generation of consoles is confirmed, right?
And what will this free Rocket League have? All the good that the original had, although the owners of the 2015 game will be awarded through the so-called Legacy Status, with a series of objects to reward loyalty. Also, this new season will start soon with the Flame-Branch event and on PC there will be a change from Steam to the Epic Games Store, its new home. Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One remain the same with this free version, except for the fact that Microsoft’s console will remain a requirement Xbox Live Gold essential to play online. On PS4 and Switch, your online subscriptions will not be necessary.
