Rocket League’s Crate system is being removed in favor of a new one: Blueprints. Developer Psyonix announced today that the change is coming in December.
Psyonix announced in August it was removing Crates from Rocket League, following Epic Games’ lead with its removal of loot boxes from Fortnite’s Save the World. In Rocket League, players will have the chance to get Blueprints after playing matches. These items will show what can be made, and then player will choose if they want to create it. Players will have to pay to create the item using Credits instead of purchasing a key to unlock a Crate. Credits are the “new premium currency” coming to Rocket League with the December update. They can be used to create Blueprint items, buy stuff from the new Item Shop, and upgrade to Rocket Pass Premium.
Both blueprints and the item shop will arrive in December, along with credits, which are replacing keys as the game’s premium currency. You’ll also be able to use credits to buy Rocket Pass Premium too, but they won’t be valid for the esports shop — only esports tokens will be valid there. Psyonix will automatically convert keys into credits and remaining crates into blueprints once the overhauled system goes live. Until then, one final vindicator crate will be available from Thursday, which includes a battle-car and a goal explosion. If you want to buy Rocket League Items safe, you can come to 5mmo.com for help. 5mmo.com is the best online store that has about 10 years of selling game currencies experience.
Once the new Blueprint system does go live, your Keys will automatically be converted into Credits the first time you log into Rocket League. Each remaining Crate you have will be converted into a Blueprint of the same series. But before Blueprints go live later this year, the Vindicator Crate will come to Rocket League this Thursday, October 3. This is the final Crate and it will feature the new Sentinel Battle-Car and Neuro-Agitator Goal Explosion.
Rocket Passes will continue as per usual, the only difference being that the premium passes will cost credits instead of keys after the change. The Esports Shop, which uses its own special currency, will also go on unchanged.
