Rocket League's free mutator DLC out now, latest patch detailed

Here's everything that's being added, changed and tweaked in patch 1.08.

Rocket League developer Psyonix has released the free Mutator DLC as part of the latest game update, which also introduces a number of new antennas, custom options and tweaks to the gameplay experience.


As previously detailed, Mutators are designed to mix up the Rocket League formula by throwing in twists such as low gravity, altering the shape of the ball into a cube, or changing the length of matches -- among other things. A tease of the various Mutators can be seen in the video above, while a full list of changes and new features introduced in patch 1.08 can be found below.

On Tuesday, Psyonix celebrated the release of Fallout 4 with a special Vault Boy antenna that players can decorate their vehicles with.
