Rocket League update patch 1.16 is now available for the PS4 and PC versions of the game. The game’s basketball mode will be released at a later date.
All of the update patch 1.16 notes were revealed via the official Rocket League website. Several general gameplay improvements have been made plus the game’s ESRB rating has been lowered to E for everyone instead of E10+.
General changes: 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)”
General bug fixes: “Fixed an exploit that allowed Battle-Cars to jump considerably higher than they were supposed to”. This is all the bug fixes that were listed.
Hopefully the basketball mode will be released very soon. It’s expected to be out in April 2016, so the release date should not be too far off. It will be available on all versions of Rocket League.
