Rocket League's Premium DLC items have been available cross-platform since May 24, 2021. Are you excited? We certainly are!

How Does the Rocket League Cross-Platform DLC Work?

All DLC Rocket League items that were purchased before the game went free-to-play are now cross-platform. That means that players who owned pre-F2P DLC on PC will now be able to access that content not only on PC, but on their PlayStation or Xbox versions of the game as well.

Whether you’re aiming for 88-mph goals with the DeLorean Time Machine from Back To The Future, or it’s all about family and the Fast & Furious cars, players on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox will be able to use Premium DLC Packs that were purchased prior to the launch of Free To Play across platforms. -- Psyonix's press release

How Do I Access Rocket League Cross-Platform DLC?

Following are the steps that you need to complete so that you can access all of your Rocket League items and cosmetics across any platform on which you want to play the game.

Link your different platform-specific accounts to your Epic Games account

To do this, you need to first make an Epic Games account and then connect your Rocket League account to your Epic Games Account via the Activate Website.

Log into the platform where you have licensed DLC

The next step you need to take is to simply log into the Platform where your DLC is saved.

PsyNet Will Link Your DLC

Upon login, PsyNet should link the DLC in your platform account to your Epic Games account.

It's All Done!

Now that your accounts are linked, and your Epic Games account knows about your licensed DLC, your Rocket League DLC will become cross-platform.

How Does Cross-Platform DLC Work in Rocket League on Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo Switch Players are able to access Premium Cross-Platform Rocket League DLC from other platforms, but the items owned on Switch will not be able to be used cross-platform. This is a bit of a problem for many Switch fans who may want to play with the Mario decals on their PC version of Rocket League, or perhaps on one of their other consoles. In the end, the game doesn't perform great on Switch, so many might want to use the Switch to purely get those fabulous platform-exclusive Switch Items.

Are you hyped by the idea of getting all of your Rocket League DLC Cross-Platform? We certainly are, and we can assure you that we will continue to update you as we get more in-depth details about how this works, and how the system may change into the future. We will also update you on exactly what is included and excluded (if the situation changes), and how to get specific items. In the meantime, though... jump into Rocket League, have some fun, and eat a pizza.
