In an update coming to Rocket League tomorrow, all current owners of the game will receive "legacy" status and will receive a bundle of cosmetic items. The most tantalizing perk will be the gift of all previously released Rocket League branded DLCs as thanks for being an "early" adopter.

Epic have been known to collaborate with many different companies and games with a Borderlands collaboration a year ago. To mark this occasion Psyonix will be hosting an event called Llama-Rama though what kind of event that will be remains to be seen.

As expected, this move to F2P will also spell the end of Rocket League being listed on the Steam storefront. Prior to the acquisition, the two companies have had a good relationship with both studios being less than 15 miles apart with Psyonix working with Epic Games on tools for their Unreal Engine.

Rocket League is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and starting tomorrow exclusively through the Epic Games Store on PC. Will you continue playing Rocket League when it heads to the Epic Games Store?

As of now we do not what else Epic has planned up their sleeves. Rocket League supports cross-platform play, so Xbox One and PS4 players can play in matches head-to-head. Sony made and exception for free-to-play games at the start of the generation, ensuring that they don't require a PS+ sub to let people hop online and play, and Nintendo followed suit when they launched Nintendo Switch Online.

You will get a free $10 coupon for any game on the Epic Games Store that is priced at $14.99 Dollars and above! Furthermore, players that link their accounts for cross-progression will receive the Chopper EG Wheels for free.
