Rocket League Cross-Platform Progression Details Revealed
Just recently, the folks over at Psyonix announced that its popular soccer-with-cars game Rocket League will soon be going free to play. Among the details of the initial announcement was the reveal that the title will also be getting cross-platform progression, allowing players to retain their level progress and inventories across platform. Now, Psyonix has detailed some of what to expect once cross-platform progression goes live later this Summer.
Psyonix took to its official Rocket League website to reveal that cross-platform progression will be going live in the game’s next update. As one would expect given who now owns Psyonix, cross-platform progression will be made possible with an Epic Games account. As such, those looking to hop platforms will need to create a new account or sign in using an existing one, a step that will automatically be prompted upon logging into Rocket League for the first time following the update. Those that do choose to login using their Epic Games account will snag a free set of Chopper EG Wheels, shown above.
Upon logging in for the first time, players will be prompted to set their Primary Platform, which will then be their source of progression for their connected platforms. Basically, you’ll want to choose the platform where you have the most stuff. Once that’s done, players will be able to link their platforms by logging in using their relevant login data. Here’s the breakdown of what is and is not shared across platforms:
Shared Across Platforms
- All earned free drops (Common Items, Event Items)
- Season Rewards & Titles
- Rocket Pass Items
- Item Shop Purchases
- Blueprints and items built from blueprints
- All Rocket League-branded DLC included in the Legacy Pack
- Platform-Exclusive Items: e.g., Sweet Tooth, Hogsticker, Armadillo, Mario and Luigi NSR, and Samus’ Gunship
- Ultimate Edition On-Disc DLC: Batman/DC Superheroes Pack
- Premium DLC Packs: licensed content that was previously available in the Showroom (e.g., Back To The Future, Jurassic World, DC Superheroes, Fast and the Furious, Ghostbusters, Knight Rider, etc.)
- Credits and Esports tokens balances
Rocket League is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
