Fortnite has officially unveiled all the major details about the upcoming crossover event titled Rocket League Llama-Rama, including all the exclusive challenges and rewards associated with it. Here’s what you need to know.

Despite Fortnite essentially being known for its crossovers over the past couple years with the likes of Marvel, DC, and Star Wars joining the game in some way, shape, or form, the title really hasn’t had a crossover with another major game. That is, until now, with the Rocket League Llama-Rama event.

The event itself was originally announced back mid-September 2020 but, at the time, we had no idea what it would entail. Now, Epic Games has pulled back the curtain on the details for the event, which are meant to celebrate Rocket League going free-to-play, and players will soon be able to unlock some cool gear in both games just by completing a few challenges.

What challenges do I have to complete?

As of right now, all the challenges that you have to complete during the Llama-Rama event take place in Rocket League itself. This means, of course, that you won’t have to do anything in Fortnite in order to get these rewards.

On top of that, for the most part, all of the challenges are pretty to complete, meaning it should take minimal effort to get them done. That being said, some of the later challenges might be a bit difficult, so you may want to brush up on your skills before attempting to unlock them. You can find a full list below:

  1. Llamas, Start Your Engines!: Play an online match in any playlist.
  2. Flagged for Victory: Win one online match in casual with the Llama Antenna attached to your vehicle.
  3. Top of the World: Get 5 goals, saves, or assists with the Llama Topper attached to your vehicle.
  4. An Epic Endeavour: Win 5 online matches in any playlist with the Llama Decal attached to your vehicle.
  5. Llama Legend: Get MVP in any online match with the Llama Wheels attached to your vehicle.

What rewards do I get for completing the challenges?

While the challenges themselves can only be completed in Rocket League, completing them will net you rewards for both games. Unfortunately, the rewards for Fortnite are a bit bland compared to the rewards for the former.

Challenge 1:

  1. Rocket League reward: Llama Flyer Antenna
  2. Fortnite reward: Rocket League Spray

Challenge 2:

  1. Rocket League reward: Top Llama Topper
  2. Fortnite reward: Holodata Drop Contrail

Challenge 3:

  1. Rocket League reward: Loot Llama Octane Decal
  2. Fortnite reward: Rocket Groove Music Track

Challenge 4:

  1. Rocket League reward: Llama Wheels
  2. Fortnite reward: Rocket League Emoticon

Challenge 5:

  1. Rocket League reward: Battle Pass + Battle Balloon Antenna, Battle Bus Wheels, and Battle Bus Engine Audio
  2. Fortnite reward: Octane RL Backbling + style variant

How long do I have to unlock these rewards?

According to Epic Games, the Llama-Rama event is set to start on September 26, and will last until October 12, so you’ll have a little over two weeks to earn your rewards, which should be plenty of time.

All in all, the event itself looks like the perfect celebration of both games. Here’s hoping it all runs smoothly.

Epic Games sues Apple & Google in UK over Fortnite removals

Following litigation over Fortnite’s app store removals by Apple and Google in the United States of America, Epic Games have officially mounted lawsuits against both tech companies in the United Kingdom, as well.

In August 2020, Epic Games added their own payment process to Fortnite’s mobile offerings so that Apple and Google’s cellphone and tablet users could purchase in-game items at a discounted price. This discount was specifically enabled by the new process, which bypassed each company’s transaction fees. 

Unsurprisingly, as the payment method was in direct violation of both the App Store and Play Store’s Terms of Services, each company subsequently removed Fornite from their offerings. And, expecting this, Epic Games responded by launching lawsuits against the companies in the U.S. and Australia. 

Now, the makers behind the world’s most popular third-person battle royale have tripled down and mounted legal action against both tech giants in the U.K. Citing violations of competition laws, Epic Games’ legal case in the U.K. is very similar to the ones already made in other countries. And, immediately contested, Apple and Google’s responses have proved similar, as well.

As discussed by BBC News, Epic have officially submitted documents to the Competition Appeal Tribunal in the UK. The allegations suggest a monopolistic abuse of power by each company that centers around competitive restrictions to app store and payment processing options, as well as unfair payment fees.

Typically, those fees come at about 30 percent of all purchases, although exact figures differ depending on company and app. Fortnite is obviously one of the biggest games in the entire world, so almost one-third of their sales on mobile means hefty earnings.

But, like their other lawsuits, Epic allege that this is about more than their own profits. The company demands that Apple and Google begin allowing software developers to institute their own payment-processing systems and options to be downloaded outside of the App and Play stores.

So far, Apple and Google have both replied similarly in the U.K. situation, claiming that they are open to reintroducing Fortnite to their mobile stores but that they deny any violation of competitiveness.

Dexerto will continue to monitor the legal cases in each country, providing updates whenever these prolonged legal disputes begin reaching their conclusions.
