The Fortnite Rocket Racing mode will see a brand-new collaboration with McLaren. As a part of this collaboration, a new vehicle is set to join the Rocket Racing garage.
Considering that it’s a new game mode, the Fortnite Rocket Racing garage isn’t too extensive just yet. Players don’t have too many options when it comes to selecting the cars they would like to race with.
However, according to recent leaks, a new car is set to go live in Fortnite. Although the model of the car is still unconfirmed, there’s a chance that either the 765LT or the 570S from Rocket League will be included in Fortnite.
Fortnite Rocket Racing is still new so it’s unlikely that this collaboration will take too long to appear in the game. Once it goes live, there’s a chance that it will be quite similar to the Lamborghini Huracan STO collaboration where players could get their hands on the car along with a few extras.
Furthermore, players who already own the McLaren vehicles in Rocket League might not have to purchase the cars in Fortnite Rocket Racing as well.
That said, according to a few leaks, Fortnite Rocket Racing will be receiving more tracks in the coming days, with more traps and obstacles. These tracks will add a new layer of challenge once they go live.
It’s also worth noting that all vehicles in Rocket Racing are at the same level in terms of performance. These collaboration cosmetics are just skins and offer no competitive advantage.
Given that the Lamborghini Huracan STO bundle went live in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1, it’s unlikely that the McLaren collaboration will go live during the same season. The Fortnite x McLaren collaboration bundle could be priced somewhere within the 2000 V-Bucks ballpark.
