When Psyonix revealed it had been acquired by Epic Games in May, it didn't exactly go down well the Rocket League community. In fact, Psyonix was so concerned about how its fanbase would react, it released an FAQ to ease any concerns about potential gameplay adjustments and platform exclusivity.
Now, in its latest blog post, Psyonix and "Epic Games as a whole" have announced all paid and randomised crates will be removed from Rocket League "later this year" and replaced with a new system –to show players exactly what they're getting:
Here at Psyonix, and Epic Games as a whole, we are dedicated to creating the best possible experience for our players all over the world. In pursuit of that goal, later this year we will remove all paid, randomized Crates from Rocket League, replacing them with a system that shows the exact items you’re buying in advance.
It was also noted how this update is similar to the changes in Fortnite earlier this year:
This is similar to changes implemented earlier this year by the Fortnite Save the World team.
The blog post went on to explain how Rocket Pass Premium, DLC Cars and Esports Shop items would still continue to be offered as direct purchases alongside the new system. More information about the removal of crates will be revealed in the coming months.
