Rocket League and Fortnite join forces for Llama-Rama crossover event

Rocket League’s first in-game event after it goes free-to-play tomorrow will be Llama-Rama, a crossover with Epic Games’ Fortnite. Starting September 26 at 22:00 PDT (06:00 BST on September 27) players can begin working through the challenges to unlock Fortnite-themed accessories.

Unlike previous events, all the items from the Llama-Rama event will be completely free. Each Event Challenge unlocks a different item that can be claimed from the Challenges Menu. Players that complete all the objectives will unlock the latest Rocket League car, the Battle Bus from Fortnite. A Psyonix developer on Reddit has confirmed that the Battle Bus will use the new Merc hitbox that was added to the game last Thursday.

Fortnite players will also unlock Rocket League-themed items by grinding through the Llama-Rama challenges. Rocket League players will have to remember to claim these items, whereas Fortnite players should receive them automatically. Those of you who have always wanted to represent Rocket League in Fortnite, you finally have the chance. You can get a glimpse of all the new items over on the Rocket League website.
