Rocket League is Adding its First 3 DLC Packs to the Base Game Later this Year
Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, and Chaos Run are being added to the base version of Rocket League later in 2019.
Since its release in 2015, Rocket League has become a runaway success for its developer Psyonix, who was recently acquired by Epic Games. The game has come to most modern platforms and received a ton of DLC, and now some of its earliest DLC packs are going to be added to the basic version of Rocket League. The Winter 2019 Roadmap for the game was unveiled today and, among other things, it confirms that Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, and Chaos Run are going to be added to the base game.
Players originally had to pick up Rocket League Game of the Year Edition or buy the DLCs separately in order to get the content they contained. While no date has been shared at this time, players will be able to boot up Rocket League and have immediate access to everything from Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, and Chaos Run before the end of 2019. As such, each of the DLCs and the Game of the Year Edition have been delisted from all storefronts and anyone who bought the DLC between October 1 and today will be able to get a refund from the platform holders of whatever storefront they bought the game on.
While it’s great to see that all of that DLC is getting baked into the game, Rocket League is also receiving some other new content and changes this Winter. To start, Psyonix is giving players the ability to “archive items to no longer appear in your main inventory tabs.” Universal animated decals have also been unveiled as the main rewards for Competitive Season 12. Frosty Fest was confirmed to be returning in mid-December and should bring a suite of new holiday-themed items with it.
To cap off today’s announcements, Psyonix reiterated that Item Shop and Blueprints update are still on their way and that Rocket Pass 5 is poised to begin in December. We will be learning more about all three of those things over the next couple of months. If you still haven’t managed to try this game out yet, Rocket League is available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch and it can be picked up on Amazon.
