Fortnite’s No Sweat Summer event for this year has just ended and without interruption, it’s time to move on to the next one. While this one isn’t directly tied to the battle royale itself, it still has ties as it’s part of Epic Games’ formidable portfolio. In case you haven’t heard, Rocket League, Epic’s super popular arcade-style vehicular soccer game, has started its World Championship.
But how is Fortnite related to the image? Well, the battle royale is known to host a lot of in-game screenings and the Rocket League World Championship will get the same treatment as players can enjoy matches on the game’s big screen while earning rewards during the break. Starting today August 9-11, the stream will begin at 11:30 a.m. ET while between August 12-14 it will begin at 11 a.m. ET.
In case you thought it was going to be pretty boring watching games and doing nothing, don’t worry, Epic has more planned. Before the game starts, players must choose a team to support. Each time this team scores a goal, players earn power-ups. They will come into play at the end of the Rocket League match as it will be followed by a Team Rumble in Fortnite. Players on the winning team will automatically land with upgraded weapons to turn the tide in their favor.
That’s not even all, as Fortnite players can receive plenty of in-game rewards by completing various quests. Completing them all will grant players the Rocket League Back Bling, Regal Rocket Glider, and Nice Shot trophy! Emoticon and the Golden Goal Spray. Finally, those who play Rocket League can get their hands on another set of rewards by entering the code RocketLeagueLive in-game.
Get all of these Rocket League-inspired items by downloading Fortnite now through the official website or play using XCloud.
