Rocket League is celebrating its seventh anniversary this week with a new Birthday Ball event bringing two Limited Time Modes. This week also sees the start of Rocket League Sideswipe Season 4 for the mobile spin-off.
Available now on iOS and Android, Rocket League Sideswipe Season 4 adds a new Mutator Madness game mode along with a new Rocket Pass, Arena, and Crossover event.
Headlining Rocket League Sideswipe Season 4 is the Mutator Madness game mode. This novelty mode switches things up with random mutators, from turning the ball into a cube to giving players unlimited boost. Among the settings for randomising the match include gravity, ball bounciness, max jump, ball speed, car size, and more.
Players can upvote or downvote the randomised mutator settings at the end of the match. The mutator with the most votes will then be playable on the weekend with a double XP boost.
