It seems there’s also a Fortnite crossover event in the works

Rocket League is finally going free-to-play. Developer Psyonix announced that the game would soon be free for everyone back in July, but it’s officially happening on Sept. 23, when the game makes the move to the Epic Games Store.

In a new developer post about the move to free-to-play and the game’s new PC home, Psyonix reminded players that they can link their current Rocket League accounts to their Epic Games account in order to carry over their progression and tie in cross-platform progression. On top of that, players who already own the game are now eligible for “Legacy Status” which will give them a few items with the game’s next update.

Psyonix and Epic are offering Rocket League players a few extra bonuses to celebrate the game’s new home as well. Any player who adds Rocket League to their Epic Games Store library between Sept. 23 and Oct. 23 will get a free $10 Epic Games Store coupon that can be used on anything $14.99 and up in the store. Players will also get two unique cosmetics added to their inventory once they launch the game.

There will also be a new in-game event called Llama-Rama starting sometime shortly after Rocket League’s Epic Games Store launch. The event seems to be Fortnite-related, since it’s using the game’s signature Llamas, but Psyonix won’t go into details on the event until sometime next week.
