'Rocket League' owners can get refunds for their Linux and Mac versions.

Developer Psyonix recently confirmed plans to pull support for the football-car game on both macOS and Linux (SteamOS) - with March marking the end of the title's updates on those platforms - but it's not all bad news.

Affected players - who are said to make up less than 0.3% of total users - will be able to get a refund for their purchase

In a post on Reddit, a Psyonix team member insisted the original idea was for players to contract them directly about getting their money back.

The post explained: "This was supposed to happen in conjunction with Valve issuing refunds to players who have played 'Rocket League' on macOS or Linux.

"While Steam's normal refund policy has a two week purchase and/or two hours of play window, we coordinated with Valve to expand eligibility to anyone who has played 'Rocket League' on either platform.

"That process did not work as planned, and we're sorry for the frustration this has caused for anyone involved.

"At this time, anyone who has played 'Rocket League' on macOS or Linux can contact Valve about a refund for the base game, and the refund should go through."

Users wanting a refund should go to the Steam Support Website, and select 'Rocket League' under Purchases, before choosing the "I would like a refund" and "I'd like to request a refund" options.

From there, you have to select "My issue isn't listed" from the Reasons dropdown menu.

Finally, in notes, the developer tells users to write: "Please refund my Mac/Linux version of Rocket League, Psyonix will be discontinuing support"
