Fortnite x Rocket League announced ahead of free-to-play release

The soon to be free-to-play Rocket League is collaborating with another popular Epic Games title: Fortnite

For anyone that dabbles in the competitive Rocket League playlists, you're already well aware of the new competitive Rocket League season that just started today. With the end of Season 14, we're reverting back to Season 1 of Rocket League's next chapter

Free to play release time: 8AM PDT

While you can still play ranked modes, players will have to wait for the free-to-play release time to complete challenges and compete in in-game tournaments

Another unlikely announcement came later in the day when Fortnite, out of all games, announced a promotional partnership with Rocket League

Dubbed the "Llama-Rama," players of either game will be able to complete respective daily challenges and win sweet, sweet rewards

The crossover will give players cosmetic rewards based on their ability complete time-dependent tasks. Here's a comprehensive list of the 5 challenges:

CHALLENGE 1: LLAMAS, START YOUR ENGINES!

  • Rocket League Challenge: Play an Online Match in Any Playlist
  • Rocket League Reward: Llama Flyer Antenna
  • Fortnite Reward: Rocket League Spray

CHALLENGE 2 - FLAGGED FOR VICTORY

  • Rocket League Challenge: Win 1 Online Match in Casual with the Llama Antenna
  • Rocket League Reward: Top Llama Topper
  • Fortnite Reward: Holodata Drop Contrail

CHALLENGE 3 - TOP OF THE WORLD

  • Rocket League Challenge: Get 5 goals, saves, or assists with the Llama Topper
  • Rocket League Reward: Loot Llama Octane Decal
  • Fortnite Reward: Rocket Groove Music Track

CHALLENGE 4 - AN EPIC ENDEAVOR

  • Rocket League Challenge: Win 5 Online Matches in Any Playlist with the Llama Decal (Octane)
  • Rocket League Reward: Llama Wheels
  • Fortnite Reward: Rocket League Emoticon

CHALLENGE 5 - LLAMA LEGEND

  • Rocket League Challenge: Get MVP in any Online Match with the Llama Wheels
  • Rocket League Reward: Battle Bus + Battle Balloon Antenna, Battle Bus Wheels, and Battle Bus Engine Audio
  • Fortnite Reward: Octane RL Backbling + style variant

Obviously Epic Games' golden child is Fortnite; a huge chunk of the 350 million registered players still enjoy the title every month. In an effort to ensure Rocket League successfully transfers over to the Epic Games Store, going all out in a promotion like this is one way to get 'er done

I am so in love with this crossover that words can't properly show. Rocket League and Fortnite are two of the main games I have not only dedicated a serious amount of time towards, but also looked forward to seeing grow into what they are today

With the Epic Games acquisition and move to FTP, I can only envision huge growth opportunities for the Pysonix operated rocket propulsion soccer game

See you on the pitch @ September 26th when the Llama-Rama challenges kick off! In the meantime, follow us on Twitter
