Rocket League 1.74 Update Patch Notes

If British TV show Top Gear never proved it, then Psyonix’s Rocket League certainly did: cars and football (or soccer) are a match made in heaven. Even more so now, as the Rocket League 1.74 update patch notes are here and confirm that the March 10, 2020 update is set to make some big improvements.

Rocket League 1.74 update patch notes

Perhaps the main highlight of Rocket League patch 1.74 is that Blueprints can now be traded in, allowing players to exchange five unwanted Blueprints from the same series (and of the same rarity) for one Blueprint of the next-highest rarity. Not only that, but there’s a new “Spiked Rush” Mutator preset and some all-new options that should help players to further finetune the game to their exact liking.
