Psyonix will be bringing a brand-new crate system to their smash hit Rocket League according to a post that went live on Reddit the other day.

A user had initially posted an image that he’d found in some code for the game that showed a crate like microtransaction system that could be implemented at some time in the future. Before people could be whipped up into a frenzy though, Vice President of Psyonix Jeremy Dunham had this to say:

“Those assets are, indeed, early pieces of an upcoming system we plan on implementing to fund our esports prize pools and events. We plan on officially announcing it next month at (or near) the [Rocket League Championship Series] Live Finals since it directly relates to that event and other events like it, but since this image came out before our official word, we wanted to clarify some things for you.”

No specifics were given on how the crates would operate, save that they would be cosmetic-only and would not give the player an advantage over someone else, and that they can’t be sold on the Steam Marketplace due to the recent allegations of gambling and betting that has been going on in recent months.

More information will become available during the Rocket League Championship series, which is taking place on August 6th through August 7th.
