3, 2, 1, Go! - Rocket League’s Octane Callout in Fortnite

The Fortnite Team


In v22.10, Rocket League’s famed Octane has boosted into Fortnite for creators to supercharge their experiences. And this is no ordinary vehicle — the Octane moves almost exactly the way you’re used to in Rocket League. It has rocket boosters, supersonic speed, the ability to jump, double jump, dodge, take flight, and drive on walls!

Rocket League Octane Vehicle in Fortnite

To celebrate Octane’s arrival in Fortnite, we’re challenging creators to design islands that use the vehicle to its fullest potential. This doesn’t necessarily mean accelerating the Octane to its fullest speed (though it can!), but it does mean using the Octane in a fun, engaging way. Some of our favorite islands will be featured in a special Discover row in November 2022. See below for more info, including design guidelines, tips, and submission details.

Island Design Guidelines

We’re looking for:

  • Groundbreaking islands that utilize the newly-released Rocket League Octane Spawner device and make the most of the driving experience in Fortnite. Celebrate the Octane vehicle and the possibilities it adds to the creator toolbox!

    • Unsure where to start? Visit the Rocket League’s Octane Tutorial island — published by creator team 404 Creative — to help you out. (Island code: 7335-2078-5523)

  • Thoughtful level design. See how you can evolve genres by using the new Rocket League Octane Spawner device.

  • The imagination to either reinvent the wheel or put a spin on classic genre tropes.

    • Driving, Deathrun, and so many other genres are just waiting for a shot of Octane! For example: flip a normal road race on its head by utilizing the Octane’s distinct features.

Island Tips

Now that you’ve read the guidelines, here are some tips to give your Octane islands extra flair. These aren’t required, but they can help get you across the starting line!

Use the New Rocket Boost Device

In addition to the Rocket League Octane Spawner device for spawning Octanes, creators also have the Rocket Boost device available. This new device is a customizable pickup that works only with the Octane and restores its unique Boost resource.

Use the New Rocket League Prop Gallery

There are the two new devices, but there’s also the Rocket League Prop Gallery. With this new Gallery, creators can make their islands themed after Octane’s home turf. Place down Rocket League Trusses, Banners, a Car Statue, and Chevron Lights!

Check out the "Rocket League's Octane Template" Island

The “Rocket League’s Octane Tutorial” island was discussed above, but to give creators design inspiration, 404 Creative also published the Rocket League’s Octane Template island. Visit this island to get ideas for your own, or just for a fun diversion in your island designing! Access Rocket League’s Octane Template via the island code 7808-4434-5127 and see the Octane’s potential on display.

Submission Criteria (and How to Submit)

Submission Criteria

  • Only one island per creator will be accepted.

  • We’re looking for high-quality experiences that highlight the possibilities of the Octane.

    • Fully functional islands that use devices well, set effective boundaries, and are highly polished make for a better player experience and are more likely to be featured.

  • Prioritize innovation. (Besides the Rocket League Octane Spawner device, islands must use at least one additional device released in 2022.)

    • Never-before-seen island designs that push limits will certainly grab our attention.

  • Each submission requires a video overview.

    • Submission videos must show a fly-through of the entire island as well as one round of gameplay.

  • Submissions do NOT need to be new islands.

    • This callout offers a unique opportunity to either develop an entirely new island that highlights the Octane vehicle, or to update and refine one of your already-existing islands to involve the Octane in some way.

  • Promotional trailers are encouraged.

    • Including a captivating promotional trailer for your island is not required but highly encouraged. (Video overviews are required, however.)
