How cross-platform progression will work in Rocket League
Psyonix has detailed how cross-platform progression will work in Rocket League when the game goes free-to-play later this summer.
To start with, players are going to need an Epic Games Account to make use of cross-platform progression. Once logged in, players must select their primary platform, which will act as the source of all their progression on all connected platforms. Once players have linked to an Epic Games Account, they will receive the Chopper EG Wheels for free.
“You’ll be able to connect additional platforms you have to your Epic Games Account on our account linking page. Simply link your platforms using your PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Nintendo Switch Online, and Steam account login information and share progress,” the developer added in a blog post. “You may also designate one of them as your Primary Platform from the linking page. If you’ve linked platforms to your Epic Games Account in the past, you won’t need to do it again for Rocket League.”
Using cross-platform progression, players can share all earned free drops, season rewards and titles, Rocket Pass items, Item Shop purchases, Blueprints, and all Rocket League-branded DLC. However, platform-exclusive items, Ultimate Edition on-disc DLC, licensed premium DLC packs, and Credits and Esports tokens cannot be shared.
Changes are also being made to player-to-player trading. Following the update, purchased items, such as Blueprint items built with Credits, can only be traded on the platform they were purchased on. As well as this, both players in a trade will have to have purchased at least 500 Credits to trade unless they played Rocket League before the launch of free to play.
Rocket League’s free-to-play launch is scheduled for later this summer on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
