Rocket League gets patched to version 1.16 on PC, PS4

Improvements have been made to hitboxes, ESRB rating lowered to "E."


Rocket League, the soccer-meets-futuristic-cars sleeper hit from Psyonix, is now officially suitable for Everyone as judged by the ESRB.

The game's most recent patch, 1.16, which is available now for PC and PS4, has dropped the game's rating from E10+ to E, a move that Psyonix says should only affect parental control settings.

Otherwise, the patch notes posted to the dev's website seem minor, but should please players looking for changes to fundamental issues. The Scarab, Breakout, Octane, and several other vehicles have received adjustments to their hitboxes " to more accurately represent their models,"per Psyonix.

Other changes include fixed collision issues and improvements to ball-bounce behavior.
