The latest Rocket League patch is mostly about balance, with an unexpected bonus.
Psyonix has released a new patch for Rocket League that, among other things, reduced the game’s ESRB rating from “E10+,” to “E”. This only affects parental control settings, however, but is amusing nonetheless.
The bulk of the changes has to do with balance, adjustments to ball-bounce behaviour, as well hitbox changes for various cars.
Find all notes below. Patch 1.16 is out now on PC and PlayStation 4.
Changes and updates:
- Improved Hitboxes for multiple vehicles to more accurately represent their models; specifically…
- Fixed Scarab and Grog’s hitboxes, which were not long enough
- Fixed Breakout and Hotshot’s hitboxes, which were not wide enough
- Fixed Batmobile and Breakout’s hitboxes, which were abnormally long
- Fixed Gizmo, Octane, Ripper, and Scarab’s hitboxes, which were too tall
- Fixed Dominus’ hitbox, which was not long or tall enough
- Repaired collision issues that resulted in incorrect ball-bounce behavior in some maps.
- Additionally, the “Wasteland” Arena received collision improvements to eliminate inaccurate bounces
- ESRB Rating has been lowered to “E” from “E10+” (this should just affect parental control settings)
- Fixed an exploit that allowed Battle-Cars to jump considerably higher than they were supposed to
