Forums - Gaming Discussion - Roket League won't need PS+/Switch Online, MS keeps the paywall

B-but wouldn't MS make Gold free for everyone to play online for free? :o



Around the Network

For a while here, I thought I would be able to play Rocket League on PS4 as well. Then I remember I don't even own it on PS4. Saves me the hassle of having to figure out whether I want to have anything to do with Epic in regard to the game (connecting accounts across platforms requires an Epic Games account, I think).

EDIT: Nevermind, I guess I'm dumb if I'm thinking I can't play a game when it's going free-to-play. >_>

How did Rocket League manage that? I can't imagine companies would be able to just bypass the online paywall without any consequences.

Its a F2P game. Those are playable on PS consoles without Plus. I'm not sure on Nintendo's (Switch Online) policy but I presume its the same.

Since when is Rocket League FTP? When did that happened?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I think it's not free-to-play yet, I think the latest news is that it's going free-to-play this month. Was supposed to go free-to-play in summer but, well, it's September now, so I guess either summer is extended or Rocket League missed the goal...

Sony on PS4 never locked F2P behind PS+, MS does, so really it is a no news.

I miss the threads you used to make about how Rocket League made you hate life and yourself.

I'll be bak



My Etsy store

My Ebay store

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Won’t make me abandon MS. Steam, Sony and Nintendo have burned me way too many times to warrant me going to them and iOS Apple and Google seem ready to do the same.

At this point, it’s either Xbox, Piracy or the door for me.



Epic was right all along...

This isnt just for rocket league right?
Sony and Nintendo keep free to play games, free to play online.

I don't know. I have Nintendo Online but I let it lapse once. I couldn't even register my Resident Evil games on RE.net without the subscription.
