I might be entirely wrong.

I’m pretty sure all F2P games on PS4 don’t require a PS+ sub. Very few of them are cross-play.


I'm just surprised Sony et al have allowed it. They won't be making any money taking their cut of the actual game sales because 'free', and people can play these games on their platform without shelling out for the usual subscription. I must be missing something because it's not like massive corporations to leave money on the table.

They’ll get a cut of the MTX sold on their platform. These F2P games make bank, yo.

Oh, yeah; that'll do it.

And also they made it available on PS+ when it was first released, so had some kind of deal with Psyonix at that point anyway.

What about those people that originally paid for it (like me) I mean, I'm not that bothered as I've definitely had my money's worth out of it but I bet they'll be people complaining on the internet that they've paid for something that's now free.

Quote:
Anyone who has played Rocket League online before the launch of free to play will be rewarded with Legacy status, which includes:

  • All Rocket League-branded DLC released before free to play
  • "Est. 20XX" title that displays the first year you played Rocket League
  • 200+ Common items upgraded to "Legacy" quality
  • Golden Cosmos Boost
  • Dieci-Oro Wheels
  • Huntress Player Banner

In addition, if you've played online before this announcement, you will also receive the Faded Cosmos Boost. Legacy rewards will be granted once the free to play version launches later this summer.

It’s not like a paid-for service going F2P is a precedent here, and they’ve given plenty of notice.

Plenty of notice to what, though? They can't get their money back.

(And nor should they, let me quickly add. But I'm unsure as to what difference the notice makes)

The notice would have only been handy for those thinking of buying it recently I guess.

I've certainly had my money's worth from it and if all the DLC is going to be available as that earlier post says, then I might try and get some of the achievements that rely on it.

I'm not bothered with it becoming free to play at all and that DLC is a nice added bonus. According to my spreadsheet, I paid £15.99 for it on the 14th February 2016 so around £4 a year. I can cope with that.

This is free to grab now, and comes with a sweetener of a £10 voucher* for the Epic store if you take it within 30 days.

*Only to be used against anything that's £13.99 or more.
