Independent video game developer and publisher, Psyonix, announced today that Rocket League, the sports-action hit that has surprised and delighted the worldwide gaming community, will deliver an all-new, FREE update featuring “Mutators” — a cool suite of alternative presets and settings that add depth, variety, and crazy rocket-powered fun to custom games. The new update will be available on the PlayStation Network and Steam PC this November.
With the introduction of “Mutators,” Rocket League players will soon be able to play a variety of interesting new game-alts, including the low-gravity “Moonball” or the classic Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars game modes,”Cubic” and “Time Warp,” to name just a few. A special playlist, entitled “Mutator Mashup,” will also launch in November and these combine several preset modes into a single, randomized list of online games.
A highly-requested Mutator mode based on the sport of Hockey will be available in December.
Following today’s announcement, Psyonix will also hold a live developer stream that goes in-depth with the new Mutators shown in the trailer starting 5pm Eastern/ 2pm Pacific on Thursday, October 29 on the official Rocket League Twitch Channel.
Following the live Twitch stream, Psyonix also will hold a Reddit AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) on Tuesday, November 3 to follow up on any outstanding player questions.
