Rocket League becomes free-to-play and launches a crossover event with Fortnite

We have known for a while that Rocket League was changing. After Epic Games bought Psyonix in 2019, the news was announced this summer and it was hardly surprising, but it was also announced that the game was going free to play, and that definitely was a shock for many people.  Of course, the change of platform for the PC version has not pleased everyone. Those who do not have Rocket League in their game library yet can now get the game without paying a penny, even on consoles. Players who bought the game are entitled to a small compensation in the form of in-game content, including all the DLC released to date, as well as a host of items.

The launch of the free-to-play version of Rocket League on the Epic Games Store is accompanied by the beginning of a new season and a crossover event that will take place this weekend with the flagship license of Epic Games. We are talking about Fortnite, of course. It's called Llama-Rama, it will begin on September 27 and end on October 12, and it will allow you to take part in challenges to unlock Fortnite-themed items, including the Battle Bus. Here's the full list of challenges and the rewards that come with them.
