Rocket League officially goes free-to-play this Wednesday, September 23, and soon after, it’ll get its first new in-game event: Llama-Rama. It kicks off this Saturday, September 26, and features some crossover items and concepts with Fortnite.
Unlike past Rocket League events, Llama-Rama will offer Fortnite-style challenges to complete, with each offering a specific item as a reward. That includes a llama topper, antenna, and wheels for your vehicle of choice, but that pool of vehicles is also increasing–complete all of the challenges, and you’ll unlock Fortnite’s battle bus for use in Rocket League. You can see it in action in the trailer below.
Llama-Rama begins on September 26 at 3 PM PT and runs through October 12. The Fortnite crossover is no coincidence, as Rocket League developer Psyonix was purchased by Fortnite maker Epic Games last year. It’s unclear if this is a one-off event or if we’ll see additional Epic Games collaborations in Rocket League in the future. We also don’t yet know if this challenge-based event will become the norm moving forward.
