on April 15, 2016 5:07 PM

If you have been concerned about some recent gameplay quirks that have developed in Rocket League, developer Psyonix is pushing a fix later today on all platforms. According to Rocket League’s Steam page, Patch 1.16 will launch today at 6 PM Eastern, bringing ball-bouncing fixes, a change in the ESRB rating to E, hit box changes, and more minor fixes.

Rocket League is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Rocket League‘s new mode Hoops should appear later this month. Check out the full list of patch notes below:

  • Improved Hitboxes for multiple vehicles to more accurately represent their models; specifically…
    • Fixed Scarab and Grog’s hitboxes, which were not long enough
    • Fixed Breakout and Hotshot’s hitboxes, which were not wide enough
    • Fixed Batmobile and Breakout’s hitboxes, which were abnormally long
    • Fixed Gizmo, Octane, Ripper, and Scarab’s hitboxes, which were too tall
    • Fixed Dominus’ hitbox, which was not long or tall enough
  • Repaired collision issues that resulted in incorrect ball-bounce behavior in some maps.
    • Additionally, the “Wasteland” Arena received collision improvements to eliminate inaccurate bounces
  • ESRB Rating has been lowered to “E” from “E10+” (this should just affect parental control settings)
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed Battle-Cars to jump considerably higher than they were supposed to
