Psyonix rolled out the latest update to their football on steroids, Rocket League, but this one is more focused on the security side of things and some bug fixes.

Considering the recent increase in cyber attacks aimed against video game developers, more security doesn't sound half bad, especially the verifiable 2FA type. 

The update is already live on Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One / Series X/S, Steam and Nintendo Switch. Psyonix kept the v1.93 patch notes brief, but they did clarify a few things for Rocket League players unaware of 2FA:

  • Starting with v1.93, players that want to participate in player-to-player trading must have 2FA enabled on their Epic Games Account    
  • As part of enabling 2FA, your Epic Games Account email must also be verified
  • Learn how to enable 2FA on your Epic Games Account here     
  • Learn how to upgrade a platform account to a full Epic Games Account here

Psyonix also advised players not to panic if the first Rocket League trade after enabling 2FA takes a bit longer to process. It can take up to 30 seconds, but once it's done, you'll be back to business as usual, i.e. trade will be quick as it normally is.

Rocket League also got a handful of bug fixes and QoL tweaks in the v1.93 update:

  • Fixed a bug preventing splitscreen players from matchmaking in Competitive Playlist
  • “Invite to party" option in Friends List now displays properly for all players
  • Fixed lighting on Forbidden Temple
  • Removed animations added to the Playlist Menu in the last update
  • Fixed a bug causing the ball to turn invisible in Spectator Mode when using Fly Cam
