Rocket League Adds India Server in Patch 2.03
Rocket League developer Psyonix added a new Mumbai server for its Indian audience ahead of the Rocket League Championship Series. Connectivity in Rocket League has been an issue Psyonix has been tackling with pro players complaining about unstable ping and poor connectivity. India was previously under the Middle East Region which made it difficult for players in the region to compete. With the new Mumbai server being added as part of patch 2.03, India is now classified under a new region. However, for esports events, India will be competing under ASM (Asia SE-Maritime) instead of the Middle East from patch 2.03.
Rocket League Patch 2.03 Overview
The new Rocket League patch 2.03’s biggest content drop includes the NFL Fan Pass. The new fan pass will offer players access to a ton of NFL-themed cosmetics. Players can purchase the new NFL Fan Pass 2021 from the in-game shop, which will unlock event-exclusive items for all players. The cosmetics will be unlocked throughout the 2021 NFL season and players will get cosmetics themed around all 32 NFL teams. The limited-time mode Gridiron will also be returning to the game as part of the NFL collaboration.
An update to offer 120 FPS on new-gen consoles was supposed to drop this month but it has been delayed until further notice. Psyonix has promised another patch later this month which will bring the much-awaited feature.
