How To Download Rocket League On Steam
Why is Rocket League no longer available on Steam?
It all started when Epic games decided to acquire Rocket League in May of 2019. Then there was a massive update that changed the course of Rocket League forever. On 23rd September 2020, Rocket League became a free-to-play game, just like some of Epic Games' most popular games. Rocket League was beginning to see a decline but becoming a free-to-play changed that and brought the game some success. Rocket League was now affordable to anybody, however, some of its most expensive items, still remained the same, and some even became more expensive.
This massive update brought many changes along with the difference in where Rocket League would be available for purchase. This meant that Rocket League was no longer available for purchase on Steam and has now moved to the Epic Games store.

Buy a Steam Account with Rocket League already installed.
There are a lot of old Rocket League players, who purchased the game long before Epic Games bought Rocket League, so if you're one of those players, do not worry as the game will still show up on your steam but if you're not one of those players, you can buy a steam account with Rocket League already installed in it. This is only if they have purchased Rocket League before it moved from Steam, otherwise, it's pointless. For the new players, unfortunately, Rocket League is no longer available on Steam and you will have to download it from the Epic Games store.
