After a leaked image of what appears to be a Crates System, Psyonix confirmed that it will be introducing unlockable crates to the game.

“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. It’s actually a pretty cool system that we’ll be happy to share detail about next month,” said Pysonix in a Reddit comment.

The new crates are planned to be used for e-Sports prize pools and events. The good thing about it is that the Crate contents are mostly cosmetic with a strict “Don’t Sell Advantage” policy. This mainly means that Psyonix is taking the strict stance to ensure that “Rocket League” will not totter in the direction of pay-to-win scheme.

Additionally, the developer confirmed that there won’t be any Steam Marketplace integration via the crates. According to the developer, this will avoid any possibilities of the new feature becoming involved in any gambling activities that some games have been connected to.

For players who are not interested in these Crate boxes can easily hide the option. Psyonix will provide a checkbox that allows this option. The developer also assured that the presence of the crates will not affect the item-drop system that is currently in place.

As a final world, the developer also assured fans that even with the new crate system set to come to “Rocket League,” the developer will still keep producing free Arenas, Modes and Items, in tandem with paid DLCs as what has been the practice even before the crate system began.

This announcement follows the release of the Collector’s Edition at the star of the month. Seen in the image above, these editions are finally coming to North America following its first debut on European shelves.
