Fortnite X Rocket League is here and the developers want to see your best island.

Another crossover between gaming icons is underway as Fortnite and Rocket League are partnering up for a new crossover called Fortnite X Rocket League. The new partnership will not b a robust one but they are offering fans a chance to get in on the action.

The v22.10 update in Fortnite brought the iconic Rocket League car “Octane” to the game. It’s in creative mode and it’s in creative mode for a good reason. The Octane car moves and operates with the same physics as the car would in Rocket Leauge.

Why is that?

Well, Fortnite wants you to create your own island involving the Octane and the numerous ways to have fun with it. Fortnite wants creators to design an island that not only focuses on the speed of the car but will also challenge it in a “fun, engaging way”. Meaning, ramps, angled walls, and all sorts of chaos.

The best islands as picked by Fortnite and Epic games will be featured in November as part of a special Discover Row.

Below are the entire island design guidelines from Epic Games themselves with the submission rules and how to submit the island for review.
