The Fortnite and Rocket League crossover, Llama-Rama, is coming back in style, just in time to celebrate the end of the second season of Rocket League. If you take part in the event, you can receive rewards that can be redeemed in both games. This isn’t some esports event tie-in promotion, this can be redeemed by all players.
The Llama-Rama event is running from Thursday, March 25th at 9 am PDT / noon EDT / 4 pm GMT through April 9th at 1 pm PDT / 4 pm EDT / 9 pm BST. All of the challenges will be played in Rocket League and all but one of them will have rewards that can be redeemed in both games.
Not only will players be in with the chance of redeeming these rewards, but Epic Games have also organised a concert with the official headlining DJ of Rocket League’s music-inspired Season 2. Kaskade, the DJ in question will be performing for the Llama-Rama event at the Main Stage in Fortnite’s Party Royale, through Picture-in-Picture in standard Battle Royale, or via the group video chat app Houseparty.

Fortnite and Rocket League
This is the second Llama-Rama crossover between the two games after Epic Games acquired Rocket League from Psyonix. Since then, Rocket League has only stepped up its marketing and promotion. Both of the games have a healthy esports scene, but Rocket League esports is still the more popular and easier to understand option for punters.

Fortnite Betting is a difficult proposition for your average esports bettor. Picking the winner of the match out of a total of 100 players can sometimes feel more like spinning a roulette wheel than placing a bet at a bookmaker. This is replicated in the crossover event. It is a lot easier to complete challenges in Rocket League than in Fortnite.
Since Rocket League seeks to emulate the flow of a football game, many betting sites may find it easier to offer odds on their events. Esports and esports betting seem to fuel each other and it may be some time until the Fortnite betting scene matches the popularity of the game itself.
