Rocket League launches today on PC and PS4, with the latter version being free for PlayStation Plus members. Players can expect to see more content going forward--some for free--as the game's developer has teased "big plans" for the future.

In a PlayStation Blog post today, Rocket League developer Psyonix revealed that the first paid DLC pack is nearly complete and is due out before the end of the month. It will consist of two new cars "and several more surprises," the specifics of which weren't hinted at.

Also coming before the end of July is the first DLC map, which is said to be inspired by the Utopia map from Rocket League's predecessor, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars. Whereas the new cars are expected to be a mostly cosmetic change, a new map has the potential to fragment the online community if only some players have access to it. Fortunately, it will be released for free, as will all future maps.

There's no other word on what else we'll be seeing, but it sounds as if the company will be talking more about new maps before long. But Psyonix did tease that there is a lot more to come.

"We have BIG plans for Rocket League and our players, which is why you can expect to see plenty more from us over the next several weeks, months, and hopefully, even years," community and marketing director Jeremy Dunham wrote.

Rocket League offers cross-platform multiplayer between the PC and PS4 versions. The two games are identical, though the PS4 version features an exclusive car in Twisted Metal's Sweet Tooth. It's available today for $20 or, as noted above, is among the lineup of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers in July.
