Rocket League Online Services Free For PS & Nintendo

Rocket League has made the decision to become a free-to-play game and as part of the initiative, fans won't need online subscription services to play on two major consoles.

Reporting on the news, IGN said that gamers won't need a PlayStation Plus or Nintendo Switch Online subscription to battle it out online.

The smash indie success, which sees remote-controlled cars take to the pitch in a type of futuristic football, already has millions of players around the world.

Xbox One players will not have the same luxury though, as the report suggests that an Xbox Live Gold subscription will still be needed for Rocket League's online services.

Psyonix announced their decision to make Rocket League free-to-play earlier this year, and with that decision there will be changes in regards to how online content will work.

One such change is the streamlining of Rocket Pass, Competitive Seasons and Tournaments - which will all share the same schedule.

Another rank will also be included, called Supersonic Legend, and will be the highest rank in the game, overtaking Grand Champion, which will be split into three ranks.

There is no official date of the scheduled change as yet, with the developers simply stating that it will happen "soon".
