What is the Llama Rama event?
The event starts on 23rd September. It is organised to celebrate Rocket League’s free to play launch in the Epic games store. Also, players participating in the event will get rewards in both games. So, expect to see some really cool Rocket League cars in Fortnite. Epic Games hasn’t said much about the events on Fortnite yet. However, the first reward announced is a 10$ coupon to anybody who downloads Rocket League on the Epic store. You can use this to buy any item worth 15$ or more on the store. You will also get rewards for logging into an Epic account. Also, you get some if you connect the two games together. It is a Promotional after all! Duh!
Epic Games will discontinue the game on Steam. However, if you got it from there, don’t worry! The support for the game will continue in spite of that.
Fortnite Rocket League collab: The potential.
This event could be huge for the Rocket League. It is already a very fun game. Also, it has a competitive scene too. So, once the huge Fortnite fan base gets a whiff of it, the game’s numbers should skyrocket. This also explains the free to play decision by Epic Games.
