Loot crates are coming to Rocket League and they won’t be using the Steam back-end. It’s actually been rumored for a few weeks that Psyonix would be adding a cosmetic loot system similar to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or Overwatch, but a Reddit user uncovered data in the latest patch that seemed to show images of a crate and key. Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham confirmed the images as being legitimate and confessed that they were related to an upcoming loot feature. Scheduled for an official reveal next month, Dunham was quick to point out that the loot system will be for cosmetic items only and the studio would not be using Steam’s back-end system.
