The Fortnite Team

Rocket Racing’s v28.10 update is here, meaning it's time to put the pedal to the metal! In v28.10, put your drifting skills to the test on two new tracks and dazzle your rivals with a Trail for your Car. Plus, enjoy a smooth ride with various quality-of-life improvements — including an updated control scheme on mobile.

Rocket Racing v28.10 Update


Two New Advanced Tracks

Ready for a new challenge? Start your engine, because v28.10 comes with two new Advanced tracks that’ll have you drifting through sharp bends, dodging obstacles, and flying off-road all the way to the finish line! 

A perilous spin on a fan favorite, the first new track is Lazy Lake 2, unlocked in ranked racing once you reach Gold I. Keep your hands firm on the steering wheel as you take on hazards working overtime.

Next up is K2 Raceway Deux, where you’ll speed across winding roads and catch plenty of air. This track is designed for experienced drivers, so you’ll need to master your racing technique and reach Platinum I to unlock it in ranked racing.

New Customization Option: Trails!

Prepare to speed past your rivals in style! With Rocket Racing’s new Trails, personalize the dust you leave on the racetrack while drifting past the pack.

Trails are a new type of Locker item you can use to customize your Car. Trails will soon be eligible for cross-game ownership. This means you’ll own certain Trails in Rocket League if you obtain them in Fortnite (and vice versa). The first Trail zooming into Rocket Racing is the Fortnite-original Drift Smoke Trail, which is in everyone’s Fortnite Locker now! More Trails will be coming to Fortnite over time in the Shop.

Drift Smoke will be in your Rocket League garage at a later date if you play Fortnite and Rocket League with the same Epic account. Get different paint colors for this Trail by completing Season Zero Tune Up Quests, available until March 26, 2024, at 12 AM ET. Smoke your opponents on the racetrack!

In Fortnite, Trails are currently limited to Rocket Racing. Trails grant no competitive advantage.
