Rocket League Sideswipe remains one of our favorite multiplayer games to return to, and recently Psyonix gave players more reason to do so. With Season 4 launching this week, the game’s much-loved Hoops mode returns for ranked and casual play, alongside an entirely different casual mode known as Mutator Madness.

The season also brings some new cosmetics that all seem to revolve around medieval tropes, but the real new thing to talk about is this new mode and how exactly it works. Read on below for more information.

Mutator Madness is an extremely chaotic mode in which certain characteristics of a match, including gravity, ball shape, the size of your car and even how many jumps you make, are randomly selected for each match. You then play this wild variant and cast a vote on whether or not you liked that particular game mode. At the end of the week, the most favorite mode will be displayed for everyone to play.

Watch the overview video at the top of the article to get an idea of ​​how wild things can get. As you can see, having different amounts of jumps or even being completely reoriented upside down can have a dramatic impact on how differently you have to play what is otherwise the same game.

Presumably due to its random elements, Mutator Madness isn’t available to play as a leaderboard, but it’s a welcome addition to the game as Season 4’s ranked variant is a return of Hoops from the game’s first season. As always, however, Rocket League SideswipeThe battle pass doesn’t really differentiate between rankings and casual play for rewards and – perhaps best of all – doesn’t require or even allow real money to be put into it. This is one of the many reasons why Rocket League Sideswipe Last year we won our Game of the Year award and we hope it continues to have a nice, long life cycle on iOS.
