Fortnite will be getting Rocket League’s popular vehicle Octane in update version 22.10. As Epic Games describe it, this Octane will be the same version as the one on Rocket League in terms of its performance and not just its looks. It has rocket boosters, supersonic speed, the ability to jump, double jump, dodge, take flight, and drive on walls.
This will likely allow users to create their own custom race tracks and Rocket League-inspired maps. There are already many in the community making jokes about how these new assets will allow players to create their own version of Rocket League, with no need for the original.
Epic Games explained in a blog post that Fortnite's Octane operates just like you'd expect it to. It has rocket boosters and the ability to jump and double jump just like it can in Rocket League. It can also fly--for a period of time--and drive on walls.
Epic Games is celebrating the crossover with a special island design contest that calls upon players to "use the vehicle to its fullest potential."
Octane will not be available for now on battle royale modes because it will be too chaotic to play. It will be added to Creative maps and modes, which will allow players to make their own mini-games. The developers are even challenging them to create their own islands that would use the vehicle to its fullest potential.
While these additions likely won’t be that comprehensive, it’s intriguing that Epic would want to add some of the trademark features from Rocket League. Seeing as players have been creating lots of Rocket League-inspired modes in the last year, perhaps Epic has seen fit to give players more tools in making those maps a little closer to the real thing.
For those Rocket League players that have held off on playing Fortnite so far, this may be just enough to convince them to give some of the game’s Creative maps a try.
