The car-soccer hit Rocket League is getting an update later this summer that will make it free-to-play, developer Psyonix announced today, on the game’s blog. Rocket League will also launch on the Epic Games Store when that update arrives, and will no longer be available to download from Steam.
Two years after abandoning their foray into esports and video games, Australian broadcaster Channel 7 is having another crack. The network Wednesday afternoon announced a new partnership with LetsPlay.Live (LPL) to air “weekly premier esports shows” to their 7mate secondary channel.
Because they suck (and also because they’re increasingly becoming illegal in some places, especially Europe), Psyonix decided in August to get rid of Rocket League’s loot boxes. They’re being replaced by something called “Blueprints”, which work…. kinda like loot boxes.
