Cross-game ownership means players with their Rocket League and Fortnite accounts linked can unlock items in one game to use in another. Cars, decals, wheels, and other accessories will be available in both games, meaning Rocket League cars are driveable in Fortnite via Rocket Racing and Rocket Racing cars in Fortnite will be driveable in Rocket League.

For this to all work, however, your accounts must be linked. So how do you link your Rocket League account to your Fortnite account?

Luckily, it’s incredibly easy to link your Rocket League account to Fortnite. To do so, make sure you are signed in to both games using the same Epic Games account, and all of your items will be available via cross-game ownership.
