Rocket League just got a whole lot more fun (if that's possible) with the inclusion of the much-anticipated custom mutator matches thanks to the new v1.08 patch.

These custom mutator settings are available to use in exhibition and private matches, alternatively you can opt for the mutator mashup mode in the unranked 3 vs 3 playlist for some random matches which may include altered ball size and shape, gravity, speed, boost and lots more too.

The new v1.08 update is available on both the PC and Playstation 4 versions of the game and along with the new mutator options also includes improved turn radius on a number of the vehicles, 13 new videogame themed antennas (including Driveclub), an option to toggle the weather effects on or off, and seven new community flags.

You can see the full extensive list of new features and updates below. Let us know if you are finding the mutator matches fun and tell us which are your favourites.
