A new loot crate system, similar to Counter-Strike’s, is coming to Rocket League, developer Psyonix confirmed.
After leaked images appeared online last week of the new system, Psyonix’s Jeremy Dunham confirmed the news on Reddit.
“Those assets are, indeed, early pieces of an upcoming system we plan on implementing to fund our esports prize pools and events,” wrote Dunham. “We plan on officially announcing it next month at (or near) the RLCS Live Finals since it directly relates to that event and other events like it, but since this image came out before our official word, we wanted to clarify some things for you.”
Dunham listed the following features as part of the loot crate system:
- Crates will contain cosmetic content only due to Psyxonix’s “Don’t Sell Advantage” policy.
- There will be no Steam Marketplace integration with crates. The developer is “not interested in taking that approach.”
- Players who don’t want to interact with this system can hide it entirely with a single checkbox.
- Psyonix is “sticking with our approach to keep introducing free new Arenas, Modes, and Items, along with the occasional paid DLC just like we always have.”
