I've always wondered who drives the cars in Rocket League. Is it The Stig? Do they drive themselves? Or is it the little eggs in the crowd who have championed six drivers?

Well, it looks like the answer all along was Fishticks, Jonesy, and the rest of the Fortnite cast.

Ahead of the all-but-confirmed Fortnite x Rocket League racing mode, leakers have now found a string of details surrounding how the two worlds will collide again, and it's set to give Rocket League quite the update.

There's a lot riding on this game mode for Epic, with Rocket League fans left livid over the removal of player-to-player trading as a consequence of the Fortnite crossover.

Now, renowned leaker "ShiinaBR" has revealed that the standard Rocket League features such as presets (body, wheels, and boosts) will arrive for customisation.

But there's more. We will finally have actual drivers, where each character will be able to emote and react, presumably at the finish line or on some form of podium, and there will be AI-controlled racers on the map too, according to the leak.

Rocket League finally gets map voting... in Fortnite


One feature which might rub Rocket League fans the wrong way is map voting, as players have been calling for a better system to skip their most-disliked maps (or placebo maps) for quite some time.

But what this does do is open up doors for testing to see what Rocket League can implement off the back of this, which will likely see the soccer game finally get some well-needed love.

The upcoming game mode is rumoured to be coming in early December.
