Rocket League Won’t Be Adding Power-Ups or Weapons
Mutators to change up private match settings may be possible but the core gameplay won’t be changing.
Psyonix’s Rocket League is on every one’s mind and console (or PC) these days thanks to its addictive gameplay and simple to learn but difficult to master mechanics. However, there was some concern recently when the developer stated to PSU that it could add power-ups somewhere down the line.
Clarifying these comments, Psyonix’s Dave Hagewood said on Reddit that, “There are not going to be power-ups added to the game. We’re not going to change balance, add stats [e.g. “different max speeds”], change physics, etc. We have a good formula and there are already infinite ways to make the game even better without changing core gameplay.”
Then what about the answer given to PSU? Hagewood said that, “That answer may have been based on the possibility of adding mutators that allow private matches to change things up for a single match just to mix things up but absolutely not for regular gameplay.”
So rest easy fans – you won’t be seeing the gameplay you know and love changing (for now).
