Psyonix has Reduced Prices for Blueprints in Rocket League After Fan Backlash

Psyonix and Epic recently did away with loot boxes in Rocket League for the new Blueprint system and Item Shop. However, when the Blueprint update went live, fans were less than happy with the prices of the cosmetics on offer — some costing more than the game itself.

After listening to feedback from the Rocket League community, Psyonix has decided to reduce the prices on most Blueprints; the Psyonix Team said, "Since the Blueprint Update released last week, we have pored over all of your comments on Discord, Reddit, Twitter, and beyond. We have heard your feedback that Item Shop and Blueprint pricing did not meet community expectations."

The price of Black Market items remains the same; however, every other rarity has had a reduction in price:
  • Rare: 50-100 Credits
  • Very Rare: 100-200 Credits
  • Import: 300-500 Credits
  • Exotic: 700-800 Credits
Painted and Special Editions prices have also been reduced:
  • Most Paint Colors: 50-200 additional Credits
  • Burnt Sienna: 0 additional Credits
  • Titanium White: 100-500 additional Credits
  • Special Editions: 200-400 additional Credits
Currently, 100 Credits equals $1, if you ignore the discount when buying larger Credit bundles. With the new pricing structure, Exotic unpainted items will still set you back about $8. Paint will cost you anywhere from $0.50 to $5. Before the price drop, a single Exotic would cost $16.

Players who have made in-game purchases between December 4 and December 11, will also receive some of their credits back, Psyonix said, "We will add Credits equal to any difference in price directly to your account." As an example, players who purchased the Crimson Fennec will receive 500 Credits back today, as the Fennec now only costs 700 instead of 1200 Credits. These Credit returns should already be complete; there will also be no in-game notification explaining this change. Psyonix is also directing players to contact their customer care team if they haven't been refunded.
