The Gaming Experience

In LEGO Fortnite, players are dropped into a vast, procedurally generated map, which is an impressive 19 times larger than the iconic battle royale island. The game offers two main modes: a creative mode and a survival mode. In the creative mode, players can unleash their imagination and build structures using LEGO elements collected from the world around them. From simple shacks to elaborate fortresses, the possibilities are limitless.

The survival mode, on the other hand, introduces challenging gameplay elements. Players must gather resources, craft items, and construct shelters to protect themselves from various enemies, including skeletons, wolves, and other creatures. Hunger and extreme heat add an additional layer of complexity to the gameplay, making survival an exciting and rewarding experience.


Customization and Outfits

LEGO Fortnite offers players the opportunity to customize their in-game character with iconic Fortnite outfits reimagined as LEGO minifigures. With over 1,200 Fortnite skins available in LEGO variant, players can choose their favorite outfits and bring them into the LEGO Fortnite universe. This customization option adds a personal touch to the gameplay experience, allowing players to express their unique style and preferences.


A New Era for Fortnite

The collaboration between LEGO and Fortnite signifies a new era for the game. Fortnite is no longer just a battle royale experience; it is transforming into a platform that encompasses a variety of games and experiences. LEGO Fortnite is just the first of several games launching within Fortnite, including Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival. This expansion aims to create a gaming ecosystem that caters to both small creator games and larger first-party games, fostering a diverse and engaging community.

Saxs Persson, Epic’s executive VP, explains, “We’re trying to demonstrate a different way to think about a gaming ecosystem, that can hold both the smallest of creator games to the biggest of our first-party games, and anything in between.” This vision aligns with Fortnite’s goal of building a metaverse — a virtual space with persistent identities — where players can explore, create, and connect.


Age Ratings and Accessibility

With the introduction of LEGO Fortnite, Fortnite has taken steps to ensure age-appropriate experiences for its players. The game now features age ratings for all in-game experiences, including those created by users. LEGO Fortnite, for instance, is rated “E10+” (Everyone 10 and older), while the battle royale mode is rated “Teen.” This approach allows Fortnite to cater to a wider audience and gives parents the ability to control the content their children can access. There’s a great “Parents Guide” with helpful resources and info about the game, managing a child account, and more here.


The Power of User-Made Experiences

Fortnite has long embraced user-generated content, and the introduction of LEGO Fortnite further emphasizes the importance of the creator community. Epic has been actively expanding the Fortnite Creative ecosystem, providing powerful tools and resources for creators to build their own games. This collaboration with LEGO not only benefits the players but also aims to make LEGO elements available to creators across the Fortnite ecosystem, enhancing the game’s overall diversity and creativity.

In a press release, LEGO and Epic announced its plans to build digital twins for thousands of physical LEGO elements using Unreal Engine, making them accessible to creators in both the Fortnite Creative tools and the Unreal Engine for Fortnite ecosystem in 2024. This move solidifies Fortnite’s commitment to empowering creators and further expanding the game’s already vast universe.
