For a game built on Unreal Engine, Rocket League's new decision to add “Mutators” to the game shouldn't come as a surprise. Mutators have been around since the days of Quake and Unreal Tournament, serving as a means for players to modify core gameplay with silly or challenging modifiers. Insta-gib is probably one of the best-known, making all shots a one-hit obliterator in Unreal Tournament.

Rocket League today released a trailer showing off its inbound Mutators patch, due for availability in November as a free update. We've listed the Mutators revealed below, following the patch trailer:

  • Cubic
  • Demolition
  • Moonball
  • Beach Ball
  • Ball Bounciness
  • Ball Max Speed
  • Ball Size
  • Ball Type
  • Ball Weight
  • Boost Amount
  • Boost Strength
  • Gravity
  • Match Length
  • Max Score

  • Respawn Time

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
