Rocket League is finally going free-to-play on 23rd September 8 AM PDT (8:30 PM IST), and players can download it from Epic Games Store. Earlier, the game was played by a vast number of players, and the developers thought it would be a good idea to bring this game to a broader audience by making it a free-to-play affair globally.
