The big November update for Rocket League that we spoke about a couple of weeks ago is available now across all platforms (there might be a bit of a delay for some so just keep checking throughout the day). This update, number 1.08, is probably the biggest shift that the game has seen since it launched to widespread acclaim in July. Mutators are the big new addition, altering physics and the ball’s shape and size. This seemingly small change alters the gameplay in huge ways, which you can try out in Custom Games, or in the new playlist.
The major components of Rocket League update 1.08 are: “Mutator Mashup” has been added to Unranked Playlist menu, Custom Mutator settings are available in Exhibition and Private Match, Titles can now be swapped or disabled in the Garage, Improved turn radius on Venom, Paladin, Merc, Scarab, and Backfire, Spectator input is now required when skipping replays in Private Match, Weather Effects can now be toggled on/off, Added 13 new Video Game Antennas including: Fallout, Oddworld, Driveclub(PS4), and Unreal Tournament, Added 7 new Community Flags.”
The various mutator options include: “Beach Ball – A huge, slow, lightweight ball with a lot of bounce, Cubic – Cube shaped ball and recharging boost, Moonball – Low gravity action with a whole lot of boost, Pinball – The ball is small, light, fast and bouncy… and a lot to handle, and Time Warp – Slow down the action as you get close to the ball.”
You can also choose other options in Custom Games, such as the length of the match, ball speed, ball weight, and boost length, among many others. Essentially, Custom Games are about to become whole new beasts compared to what they were at launch.
