So, mega-publisher Epic bought Psyonix, the developer of the popular car football game Rocket league, and soon it will be free to play and you can use a single Epic account when playing on any platform (PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch). But what about all the car customization you̵7;ve earned over the five years you’ve been playing? Good news, you can keep them … kind of.
The developers have described the process as part of the update to a completely free-to-play, platform game. The long story short is that if you have purchased Rocket League on multiple platforms, you must set one as your primary. The objects and level progress you have made on it is your primary platform. You can connect other platforms to your Epic account and any additional items that are unlocked will be added, with the highest overall ranking being your last.
With the exception of exclusive funds: especially platform exclusive like Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal (PS4) and the Mario and Luigi (Switch) cars will still be available to gamers, but only when playing on these systems. Licensed DLC, like Batmobile or Back to the Future Delorean, will also stay on the platforms they purchased.
Shopping for items is also a pain. If you buy an item on a specific platform, such as drawings, you can only trade with other players on the same platform. Items obtained randomly or via the Rocket Pass system can be traded across platforms.
The free-to-play update is vaguely planned for “this summer”, which would mean sometime in the next six weeks. Psyonix has not set an exact date for it yet.
