Developer Psyonix is putting out more free downloadable content for Rocket League, the game where you play supercharged soccer with a giant ball and tiny little rocket cars.
The DLC pays homage to Unreal Tournament modifications, and will let players create custom “mutated” matches. You can customize the settings of the ball to make it lighter, heavier, bouncier, etc. You can also make changes to the match itself, changing the rules, the respawn time, and match length. And hey, gravity will now be at your disposal. You know what that means? Moonball.
“Cubic” mode, which is based on a mode from Rocket League’s predecessor Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, will turn the ball into a giant bouncing cube.
Players can also take advantage of the “Mutator Mashup” match playlist to cycle through pre-set custom matches. Here’s the full list of mods and mutations that are coming to Rocket League in November:
- Beach ball
- Ball bounciness
- Ball max speed
- Ball size
- Ball type
- Ball weight
- Ball amount
- Ball strength
- Match length
- Max score
- Respawn time
- Time warp
In December, it looks like Rocket League will be getting an ice hockey update. If you want to learn more about it, Psyonix will be discussing the mutations on their Twitch channel on October 29 at 5pm EST/2pm PST. They’re also doing a Reddit AMA at 4 pm Eastern time on November 3.
This isn’t the first free update that Rocket League has gotten. In August, Psyonix released a spectator mode, new customizations for cars, and new arenas too. More new arenas were released in September, along with a paid DLC that cost $3.99. And of course this month, players got to drive the Delorean from “Back to the Future.” Good timing, guys.
Rocket League came out this summer to immediate popularity. It’s available for PlayStation 4, Mac, and PC.
