Rocket League's Next Patch Fixes These Issues

Psyonix outlines some of the problems that should be resolved soon.


Rocket League should be getting a new patch sometime in the next few days. While developer Psyonix hasn't yet offered a comprehensive list of patch notes, it has now detailed quite a few of the issues it says the update resolves.

Over on the official Rocket League website, you can find a new page listing the various known issues with the game. Many of these have fixes coming in patch 1.03, which Psyonix said on Twitter we can expect out early this week (barring any setbacks).

Among the issues being addressed in 1.03, according to the Rocket League website and Twitter account:

  • Numerous crashes in the Steam version have been fixed.
  • The news ticket should now work properly, rather than read, "You are offline, please connect to the Internet to get updated news!"
  • AI bots' difficulty setting will be automatically matched to the average skill level of players in the game.
  • Distance traveled will now be properly tracked in online games; currently the only way to get the trophy for driving 500 km requires you to play an offline AI game.
  • The Virtuoso achievement on Steam will properly unlock.
  • You'll see invisible cars while playing online less often.
  • Main menu rendering is being improved, making your PS4's fans less likely to kick in while sitting at it. This may not be completely resolved, but you can find out one trick to fix things here.

The known issues page also mentions a few other problems that apparently won't be addressed in the 1.03 patch. This includes improving support for controllers on PC and latency when playing online. In the case of the latter, Psyonix recommends ensuring you choose to play on servers closest to your location.

With the patch due out soon, Psyonix will also soon release the first DLC for the game. In addition to a free new level, two new cars will also be released, concept renders of which you can see above.

Rocket League has now seen more than 4 million downloads across PC and PS4 since its release earlier this month. The game remains a free download for PlayStation Plus members.

Love Rocket League but I frequently experience horrible lag when playing this game online, worse than any other games on my PS4

@bigcheese727: What region do you play in? I tried playing on a NA server, but the lag was dreaful. So, I stick with the EU server and it works fine.

Hi All ,

This is my first post on Games Spot ,,, & Im a PS4 fan.

So now I have the Rocket Lauge , I was not able to connect to their server since it was launched on PSN.

Do you guys have any comments ?

Avatar image for notsocrazygamer

@saamaan: They did have server problems but it's fine for me and many of my friends. Also from your post 2 hours ago, I have like 1 second lag spikes a game which is fine. Don't want to blame your internet connection but highly possible

Likely to stop the ps4 fans kicking in, ....... Thought that was just the ps4 being normal, gta5 the fan kicks in, but i keep a desktop fan on it at all times anyway..... Did not relize that was an issue

This game does some wacky stuff to my ps4.. The second the game goes on, my mic gets crackly to everyone and my entire ps4 slows down until I close the game. I hope they fixed that. It feels like its going to crash everytime I play..

$20 or free for PS+ - this game is so worth $20. I might be buying on PC even though I've already got it on PS4.

Avatar image for Pelican170

@Hvac0120: Nothing is free on PS+. You're paying for rentals...

Avatar image for nathanhiberdive

@Pelican170: Considering any game you download with PS+ is accessible everytime you have a subscription, even after a break, rentals is pretty lame terminology.

Avatar image for Pelican170

@nathanhiberdive: Lol, so wait. Something that you have when you pay for, but then stop paying for and you dont have, but when you decide to pay for it again you have them... is not considered a rental?? Lol ummnn ok. That is exactly what a rental is!

Avatar image for Hvac0120

@Pelican170: You're ignorant to look at it that way. Notice Xbox One no longer lets you own the games the way you do on Xbox 360.

I already paid for Ps+ for other reasons, so I consider this a free bonus for subscribing.

PS+ is required to play online on PS4. So anyone interested in Rocket League is likely already subscribed or going to be.

You're arguing a pointless matter and won't get anywhere with it. Add up the value of the "free" games already given to subscribers in 2015. You'll see you get way more than your monies worth of "rentals" for that subscription price.

The semantics of whether it's "free" is irrelevant.

Avatar image for Pelican170

@Hvac0120: I think you are the ignorant one by not thinking that way. How can you not? The second you are to stop paying for PS+, you lose all the "free games" you have downloaded...

Also, I wasnt really arguing anything, just pointing out the fact that, these games arent "free". They are rentals as long as you keep paying for PS+. And you are in fact paying for them since you do pay for the service. Nothing is free...

Avatar image for Hvac0120

@Pelican170: but what is the point of informing me (or anyone) of that fact? Who is losing out here that you are helping by adding that coment?

I understand if you are really just trying to be informative, but at this point it is pointless to bring it up since both Xbox and PlayStation work this way.

I used to inform people that PS+ and XBL are not "$5 a month" because it's either all $60 for a year or (like) $8 per month on a month-by-month. There is no $5/month plan. But I realized it's pointless to tell people this difference or argue with the false marketing. This is a similar situation.

Avatar image for Pelican170

@Hvac0120: For one, I dont care about xbox, we are talking about PS4 and PS+. You keep bringing that up for some reason.

The point of me informing you is because of your initial post. "$20 or free for PS+ - this game is so worth $20. I might be buying on PC even though I've already got it on PS4."

So the "point" would be, since the PS4 version is not free and is a rental, it would make more sense to pay for it on PC since you will have it forever.

Have I connected all of the dots for you yet? Jeez...

Avatar image for Hvac0120

@Pelican170: I was just covering Xbox in attempt to be unbiased.

My original post was meant to indicate that I enjoy the PS+ version so much that I also want to buy it on other platforms to enjoy in more places... but in less words.

I plan on keeping my subscription for the life of my PS4. So, it doesn't make sense to spend more money on the PC version over the assumption that it will work "forever." But I want to because i enjoy the product enough.

In this context, I'm the ideal customer for the games that go on PS+ as freebies.

@Hvac0120: But they arent free since you are paying for them on a subscription or rental base.

Avatar image for bobbo888

@Pelican170: and you're wrong. You're not renting anything here. you're paying for an online service. PS+ doesn't only get you free games, it offers a plethora of services. You're arguing for the sake of arguing like a child trolling a forum. Arguing that something isn't free is completely pointless. In a sense it is free because he's already paying for the damn service. He's not paying 50 dollars a year plus 20 dollars for the game. He downloaded the game for free. if he so happens to also be paying for ps+ he can continue to play the game. Why are you so dense?

Avatar image for Pelican170

@bobbo888: And you are dumb! lol. You are absolutely renting their services because when you stop paying, they stop you from using them.

And he didnt get anything for free, he paid $50 to rent games and play online. If he stops paying, the games stop being able to be played.

Nothing there is free. But if your too stupid to realize that, then I dont know what to tell you.

Talk about being completely ignorant lol.

@Pelican170: alright guy you obviously have the wrong idea. Why don't you go to blockbuster and rent some vhs

Avatar image for Pelican170

@bobbo888: Lol, no I have exactly the right idea. Do you also think Netflix isn't a rental service?

Avatar image for bobbo888

@Pelican170: I guess everything is a rental to you

Avatar image for Pelican170

@bobbo888: Lol, no, only those things that are rented. Very strange you cant seem to see the difference from what you own vs. what you are renting...

Avatar image for bobbo888

@Pelican170: Netflix is a streaming service

Avatar image for Pelican170

@bobbo888: Its a streaming service only? Weird, I get rented blurays in the mailbox from them...

Avatar image for bobbo888

@Pelican170: @Hvac0120 this was the lamest thing I've ever read on the internet. Just thought you two should know

Avatar image for Pelican170

@bobbo888: Lol, as you begin to argue your weak point of view hahahahahha.

Hopefully the servers will be normalized soon.

I had to stop playing the game last night when the lag got unforgivably bad, there were so many spikes that at one point the opposing team scored while there was a spike and we couldn't do anything.

I love this game. Repeat.....

Avatar image for saturatedbutter

I love that this game doesn't have any skill trees or gameplay ability unlocks. The only things you unlock are cosmetic stuff that doesn't effect gameplay. So the only reason to keep playing is because it's FUN!

Congrats to Psyonix, sleeper hit of the summer!

Avatar image for Setzera

I play on PC with Xbox 360 controllers and the game runs absolutely perfect offline, online, and splitscreen. I hope this patch doesn't wreck something. I only say it, because it's been a long time since I've enjoyed a game this much.

Crossplay party support between PC and PS4 is a major issue

First - Do you play on PC or PS4?

Avatar image for KBABZ

Hopefully the free station isn't just "Manfield - Night". I love that stadium and it'd be cool to see it at night like in the Main Menu, but it'd be swell to get a brand-spanking new stadium! Would certainly liven up Season mode.

I play every night.

Ya my PS4 gets extremely loud with this game.

Avatar image for lnception

Great news, please keep adding content to this game, its very very addicting & fun as shit!

Avatar image for DeviantCode

I'd love to see the issue with bot AI driving the ball into their own goal fixed, but the coup de gras for this game would be to add the ability for online co-op seasons (let your party play in Season mode). The game would be a 10 with that feature.

Avatar image for BeefoTheBold

No fix for the PS4 framerate drops?

Avatar image for nathanhiberdive

@BeefoTheBold: I am yet to experience these, the game is optimized to run smooth as butter first and foremost. I've only had the occasional lag/connection issue, which happens so rare it's more a network issue than the game/server's, except maybe for it's regular occurrence in the first 5 seconds a game starts.

This game has achieved near perfect execution. It's amazing.

Avatar image for GrayF0X786

These Devs need to take full advantage of all the hype/high review scores as well as the thriving community by keep on adding new stuff, otherwise sooner or later the community will die out if they devs themselves abandon it, amazing game.

Avatar image for Xristophoros

great game. very addictive. rocket league seemingly came out of nowhere and has surprised the gaming community at large. some of the best gaming moments this year have come while playing 2v2 matches.... i hope to see rocket league at evo or other competitive gaming tournaments next year.

Avatar image for anunbiasedgamer

Did anyone else notice that one of the features of the patch is that you will SEE INVISIBLE cars online less often? How did people SEE the INVISIBLE cars in the past. I really hope that the original patch notes say this and that gamespot did not copy them incorrectly

Avatar image for chestrc0pperp0t

@anunbiasedgamer: LOL yea how do you see something that is invisible ........ somethings not right here

Avatar image for leviathanwing

@chestrc0pperp0t: the exact same way you do it in every other game... their player tags/ids.
