Rocket League’s next update brings neat mutations that no one will ever play

, | News

Custom matches with mutators are coming to Rocket League. Psyonix announced that a free update in November for their multiplayer car arena sports title will add game-changing modes in the style of Unreal Tournament’s infamous mutators. Options shown in the video include replacing the normal ball with a square one, a low gravity setting, and a slow-motion mode.

Unfortunately, since these cool modes will only be available in custom matches or a separate playlist, it means almost no one will play with the new options enabled. Sad, really. Multiplayer games that only award XP in vanilla ranked matches incentivize the audience to never play in the most interesting battles.

Along with the November update, Psyonix left a little teaser at the end of the video for the December update. Hockey!
