Psyonix have already announced that the launch of Rocket League on the Epic Games Store will also include going free-to-play, and it will tie in with the Support-A-Creator program.
Now, some players chose to focus on the fact that Rocket League will only be downloadable from the Epic Games Store once it goes f2p, even though everyone who bought it on any platform will continue to access the game from that platform just like any other day.
Those who care about more important stuff, however, asked what's probably the most important question for Rocket League's content creators - will it be included in Epic's Support-A-Creator program.
Asked whether this will be the case, Psyonix's community manager Devin Connors said, "Yes! Rocket League will tie in with Support-A-Creator on the Epic Games Store. More info to come later."
Regardless of your platform allegiances, this is awesome news for Rocket League's content creators, who'll be able to monetise their content via Epic's already established infrastructure.
According to Fortnite's Support-A-Creator program, "In Fortnite, accepted Creators will receive $5 USD (or the local currency equivalent) for every 10,000 V-Bucks spent by players who elect to support them in-game. This applies to free V-Bucks that players have earned as well as any V-Bucks they’ve purchased."
So, if you make content that's appealing to your viewers, you'll be able to monetise it effortlessly.
Additionally, content creators can share referral links for games on the Epic Games Store, and snag a nice piece of sales revenue, as long as customers use their referral codes on the checkout counter.
Note that players can choose to support different creators at any time, with a 14-day period being the max - after which they need to reselect the creator, or choose another one.
