Psyonix Details Upcoming Blueprints for Rocket League

By Sean Carey,
Earlier this year, Psyonix made the decision to remove its Crates loot box system from Rocket League in favour of something more transparent. Blueprints will be added to the game next month, and now the developer has detailed how the new system will work.

Rocket League Blueprints

After the update, players will have the chance to win a Blueprint after completing an online match. From there, players can build the item detailed on the blueprint by spending Credits (Rocket League's new premium currency), trade it with another player or keep hold of it in their inventory. If you have any Crates still in your inventory after the update hits, they will be converted into "unrevealed" Blueprints where you can reveal the item for free and then choose to create the item with credits. Only Blueprints converted from Crates will be unrevealed.

Revealed Blueprints, Items built from Blueprints, Free Drops and tradeable items from your inventory prior to the Blueprint system will all be tradeable after the update goes live. Unrevealed Blueprints are not tradeable along with Items purchased from the Item Shop, Bonus Gifts and Esports Shop Items. Credits can also be traded as long as the other trading party doesn't include their own credits. You'll also not be able to trade Credits for nothing.

Decryptor Keys used to unlock Crates will no longer be a part of the game. If you have any Decryptors, they will be converted into "Bonus Gifts" which can be opened for free. Bonus Gifts will contain items from the Vindicator Crate series and the first Blueprint Series, the "Revival" Series. The Revival Series will contain fan-favourite items throughout Rocket League's history.

We don't have a firm date for when the new Blueprint system will be introduced into Rocket League, all we know is that it's coming at some point next month. Rocket League is currently one of many in the Xbox Game Pass games list. It didn't quite make our list of the best games on Xbox Game Pass, as rated by the community — but it got damned close.
