We’re so close to the release of the free-to-play version of Rocket League that the ball is almost over the goal line. In preparation, Psyonix has made a new minor patch available (version 1.82).
Once free-to-play has officially launched on 23rd September (8 a.m. PDT / 3 p.m. UTC), later this week on 26th September, a brand new Fortnite event will be dropping into the arena.
It’s called Llama-Rama and will allow you to unlock the famous Battle Bus as a playable vehicle along with various cosmetics.
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!

An update rolled out today in north america, but new content isnt available yet. Well, couple a new banners, but nothing else at the moment.
This makes me fear for the game’s future. Predatory “engagement for cosmetics” tactics during limited time events are one of the many elements that ruined Fortnite for me.
The rocket passes in Rocket League have always been very generous in terms of the time it gives you to complete them without feeling the need to grind for 10 hours a day.
@Apportal Epic and their masters of course, Rocket League was one of the most pure games in years now Timmy Tencent gets to milk the soul out of it.
@Apportal i wouldn’t say ruin yet. What we know about the new update is looking like it’s just a new season of Rocket League. If I didn’t know Rocket League got bought by a new owner, I don’t think would have suspected it. But we’ll see what they do over time. I’m cautiously optimistic.
Not to be another naysayer, but I fear this may become like Asphalt 9. i.e. too grindy for little reward.
I find it pretty interesting that Rocket League never lists Fortnite in this event. It makes me wonder if this is a brand deal or if the Fortnite llama is a fair use character and same with the term “battle bus”. If the ladder I can’t imagine Rocket League winning the lawsuit.
@NintonicGamer I hope you realise Epic Games owns Psyonix now and, therefore, Rocket League. Epic won’t be suing themselves
