We had shared with you a report from yesterday that new microtransactions might be making their way to Rocket League, and now the developers have shared a word or two about exactly what this is. Around next month, new cosmetic Rocket League crates system is going to be introduced.

As you might have guessed from the word “crate,” this new microtransactions system is going to follow in the line of crate systems of Valve Corporation’s games like Team Fortress 2 and Counter Strike Global Offensive.

What happened basically was that some players were able to get their hands on a couple of images showing some sort of boxes and what looked like a key to them (see below).

Before the rumor mill could turn it into something else, the vice president of developer Psyonix, Jeremy Dunham, responded to the Reddit thread where the images were being shared.

Dunham went on to confirm the existence of these Rocket League crates and also explained their plans of launching the system. Expect official word next month around the championship series.

Those assets are, indeed, early pieces of an upcoming system we plan on implementing to fund our esports prize pools and events. We plan on officially announcing it next month at (or near) the [Rocket League Championship Series] 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.

The important point is that these are cosmetic purchases, and not intended to give you an advantage in the game itself. The item drop system already in place is not going to be affected by the new Rocket League crates system.

Needless to say, Psyonix is going to continue with their existing plans regarding future updates and content too.
