Fortnite’s Big Bang event was a huge success and gave players a glimpse of what was coming. Epic Games previewed three brand new experiences coming to the game soon. These include Fortnite: Rocket Racing, Fortnite Festival and LEGO Fortnite, built in partnership with the LEGO group.

Introducing Fortnite Creative mode into the game has shattered the ceiling for what was possible previously. Fans have been able to re-create worlds from other games in the famous battle royale, such as Call of Duty Zombies or Roblox Brookhaven RP. Now Epic Games themselves are introducing a new game mode, Rocket Racing.

According to Epic Games, Rocket Racing is a supersonic arcade racer. The cars look similar to the ones in Rocket League and share the same mechanics, such as being able to drift, fly and boost. The cars are also seen performing other intricate Rocket League mechanics, such as air rolls and air dodges. The teaser also shows cars driving on the ceiling to avoid other vehicles.

Epic Games has promised that the mode will feature an ever-growing selection of tracks. Fans can probably expect Rocket Racing maps based on popular points of interest in the Fortnite map. The teaser for the mode shows a desert-themed map, which will be available at launch. Fortnite characters are seen diving from the sky as they land on various Rocket League cars, such as the Octane.

Fortnite characters sit atop the cars as they race each other to the finish line. The cars race through waterfalls and intricate shortcuts to gain an advantage in the race. You can also ram into other cars to throw them off and slow down their progress. As you drive through the circuit, avoiding other cars, you must go through all checkpoints to complete the race.
