How do you do, fellow kids? Uhh… so I hear this “Fortnite” game is pretty darn popular. It’s got shooting, dancing, and presumably… other things? Like llamas, I suppose? They must be a thing, because the similarly mega-popular-on-streaming-services Rocket League is hosting a Fortnite crossover promotion known as “Llama-Rama,” launching Friday, September 26th at 3 p.m. PT and running all the way through Monday, October 12th. 

 

 

As the first event since Rocket League’s free-to-play launch on the 23rd, Llama-Rama is also changing how in-game events are working, according to the website:

 

Beginning with Llama-Rama, in-game events are going to be slightly different from what you may be used to. To unlock the items from the event, you’ll need to complete Event Challenges. Each Event Challenge you complete will grant a specific Event Item once you claim it from the Challenges Menu. Complete them all to unlock Rocket League’s newest car, the Battle Bus

 

So, uh…rev up that Battle Bus and hit the… soccer pitch? Is there a specific name for where Rocket League matches take place? Er, regardless, get on down to the stadium and win some matches! Maybe you’ll get some sort of car dance emotes for winning? No? Seems like a missed opportunity, if you ask me.
