Rocket League: How To Fix The Version Mismatch Error

If a game has retained a massive amount of popularity nearly a decade after its initial release, it's fair to say that it's a good time. This is exactly the case with "Rocket League," a sports game that incorporates the best aspects of soccer, hockey, and a destruction derby and pits two teams of three or more cars against each other as they try to put a giant ball into the opposing team's net. It's truly a chaotic experience that is as addicting as it is fun.

Since it's unlikely that a sequel to "Rocket League" is anywhere close to being released, the game pretty much relies on a steady flow of updates in order to keep it running smoothly. But every now and then, an update will cause an error that can prevent players from accessing and enjoying the game. One such problem is the "Version Mismatch" error in which the game reads the version that the player is on as obsolete and at odds with the newest game update. This can be incredibly frustrating for any gamer who just wants to settle down and play ball for a bit. So how do you fix this issue?

How to fix the Version Mismatch error in Rocket League

If you are faced with the "Version Mismatch" error in "Rocket League" after an update, the first bit of troubleshooting you should do is to shut down your console or PC. Once you turn it back on, try to open the game. Typically, shutting down your system should solve the issue, but if you are still seeing the error after this step, restart your platform (via Early Game).

If all else fails, you should check to see if your copy of "Rocket League" is up to date. If you are on the Xbox and PlayStation consoles, simply go into your games folder and check to see if the game needs an update. On Steam, check the official game page and see if it offers an update prompt. The same process should apply on the Epic Games Store. When it comes to the Nintendo Switch, it could very well be a case of you not having enough space on your device to complete the latest "Rocket League" update. Clear whatever excess that exists within your internal storage, reinstall the update, and you should be good to go.
