Epic Games and Psyonix are throwing a collaboration celebration ahead of the Rocket League free release.

Epic Games took to the Fortnite Twitter account to announce that a cross-game collaboration between Fortnite and Rocket League will take place Sept. 23. Psyonix announced that Rocket League will become a free-to-play title on the same day

Back in May 2019, Epic Games acquired Rocket League game developer Psyonix from its former Steam platform. Psyonix was excited to announce the move at the time and confirmed it would leave the Steam platform at some point in 2019.

Fortnite x Rocket League Llama Rama Event Announced

While Epic Games has not gone into detail to provide information on what Llama Rama will include, the company did say in the announcement that fans can expect an update sometime ahead of the free-to-play switch. Exclusive legacy items are being awarded to long-time Rocket League players ahead of the free-to-play update, so it wouldn't be inconceivable to see exclusive loot dropped into Fortnite as well.

After Chapter 2 Season 4 kicked off in August, Fortnite has been a popular topic among gaming circles, as fans are enjoying the Marvel themed battle pass.
