A new Rocket League update has screeched into sight and, with it, comes a fix to a ping issue, the solution to an extremely specific PS4 problem, and even a reversal of a particularly irritating stats glitch. It’s all here in the Rocket League 1.48 update full patch notes, and we’ve even thrown in the download size too for good measure.
Rocket League 1.48 Update: Main Fixes
While it’s by no means a groundbreaking patch, the 1.48 update is definitely paving the way for the upcoming cross-play (shh, don’t tell Sony) parties update in July. Notably, the PS4 has been given a, ahem, boost when it comes to finding matches. It’s something I found troublesome myself, so it’s nice to see it’s hopefully been squared away.
Elsewhere, there are a few specific changes to body types of cars. All Merc car bodies should now have their stats showing correctly; the Twinzer car body now has a different look, too, with the paintable attribute applied.
Rocket League 1.48 Update: Download Size
It’s a smidgen over 1GB (officially 1.006GB on PS4) which means you’ll be able to fire up the game and download the 1.48 update in no time at all.
