We announced the arrival of the Item Shop when we first revealed Blueprints, and there's plenty to unveil prior to December's update. The Item Shop coming to Rocket League is an all-new way to browse in-game items to buy the exact item you've been looking for. Here's a rundown of important information you'll need to know...
To start, the Showroom is out and the Item Shop is in. The Item Shop will be accessible from the main menu. Here, you'll see Featured items on a 48-hour timer and Daily items on a 24-hour timer. Once the timer expires, new items will enter the Shop. The Item Shop will include all types of in-game items for Rocket League, like Painted Cars, Player Banners, Exotic Wheels, Goal Explosions and everything in between.
Each item will have a listed Credit value that will show how much the item costs to purchase. Prior to purchasing, you'll see if that item is a Painted, Certified, and/ or Special Edition variant; which means, for example, you'll know you're getting a Titanium White car and what it costs before you buy it.
As we shared in our previous announcement, Keys that are still in your inventory on the day of the update will be converted to Credits. Each Key will convert to 100 Credits that can be used in the Item Shop, to build items from Blueprints, or upgrade to Rocket Pass Premium. You can buy packs of Credits just like you could Keys, plus you can earn them in Rocket Pass Premium. Here are the packs that will be available for purchase:
500 Credits - $4.99 USD or region equivalent
1100 Credits - $9.99 USD or regional equivalent
3000 Credits - $24.99 USD or regional equivalent
6500 Credits - $49.99 USD or regional equivalent
Following next month's update, all Premium DLC Packs will no longer be available for purchase. If you already own any items from the DLC Packs, you will still have those items in your inventory. Items from Premium DLC Packs may return for individual sale in the Item Shop at a later date. As for Esports Shop Items, those will still have their own space in the Esports Shop tab and will continue to be available for Esports Tokens.
Between Blueprints and the Item Shop, there's a lot of new content coming to Rocket League in the next month. We hope you've been keeping up with all the latest info and you're ready to take to the field in December and the new year!

Rocket League isn't slowing down to end 2019. Blueprints, Rocket Pass 5, the new Item Shop, and more are all coming next month! Get ready for the Blueprint Update on December 4 (pending first-party certification) on all platforms.
Once the update goes live at 10 a.m. PST (5 p.m. UTC), Crates are out and Blueprints are in, and any Keys you have will convert to Credits. Here's everything you need to know to get ready for update day.
As soon as the update goes live, be sure to check your inventory. All items from Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, and Chaos Run DLC Packs will be added to all accounts on all platforms. Enjoy the extra cars and additional items!
Following the Blueprint Update, Blueprints will start to drop after select Online Matches. These new drops will show you a specific item that can then be built for Credits. You can build the item, trade it to a friend, or just keep it in your inventory.
Any unopened Crates you have in your inventory will be converted to unrevealed Blueprints of the same series, which you can reveal at no cost. You can find your revealed and unrevealed Blueprints in the new Blueprints tab in your inventory.
Keys that you own will automatically convert to our new in-game currency called Credits. Credits can be used to build Blueprints, buy items from the Item Shop, or upgrade to Rocket Pass Premium. One Key will convert to 100 Credits.
Since this is a major conversion of items, Crates will stop dropping and all purchases in Rocket League will be disabled for 25 hours beginning at 9 a.m. PST (5 p.m. UTC) leading up to the update. This includes the purchase of Keys and DLC Packs, player-to-player trades, trade-ins, and the ability to interact with any Crates you own. All Rocket League online playlists will still be up and running.
