Psyonix has announced that “all paid, randomized Crates” will be removed from Rocket League later this year.

In looking to provide “the best possible experience” for players, they will be replaced with a system that shows which items you are buying in advance.

“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,” Psyonix explained in an update.

“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. This is similar to changes implemented earlier this year by the Fortnite Save the World team.

“Rocket Pass Premium, DLC Cars, and Esports Shop items will continue to be offered for direct purchase alongside our new system.

“We will share more information, including timelines and roll-out specifics, in the coming months.”

Rocket League is now available at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
