Hey there, LEGO and Fortnite fans! 🎉 I’ve got some super exciting news for you that’s sure to get your creative juices flowing and your gaming thumbs twitching. Brace yourselves because LEGO® Fortnite is finally here, and it’s everything we’ve been dreaming of!

This isn’t just any ordinary game launch. It’s the result of a dream collaboration between Epic Games and the LEGO Group. They’ve been working tirelessly to create not just a game but a whole new universe where fun, safety, and digital play merge seamlessly. This is all about crafting delightful and secure digital playgrounds for both kids and families. And now, it’s ready for us to dive in!

So, what’s LEGO Fortnite all about? Imagine a world where the charm of LEGO meets the adventurous spirit of Fortnite. You’ll get to:

  • Step into the shoes (or should I say, blocky feet?) of your favorite Fortnite characters, like Brite Bomber, Cuddle Team Leader, and Raven. But here’s the twist – they’re all decked out in adorable LEGO style!
  • Embark on a survival quest where you’ll gather food, resources, and craft all sorts of cool items. Whether you’re a lone wolf or a team player, there’s something for everyone.
  • Show off your architectural genius by building shelters and customizing your very own home base. Why stop there? Recruit villagers, help them survive, and become the hero of your LEGO world.
  • Gear up for thrilling expeditions into deep, mysterious caves, hunting for rare resources and facing hidden foes.

And guess what? This is just the beginning. Starting early 2024, get ready for an avalanche of new worlds, gameplay features, and even more LEGO Style Outfits. You can jump into this LEGO-laden adventure on almost any platform – PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch™, PC on Epic Games Store and cloud-based gaming streaming services.

For the parents out there, peace of mind comes standard with LEGO Fortnite. Rated E10+ by the ESRB, the game features all of Epic Games’ top-notch parental controls and safety measures. This means worry-free playtime for everyone!

Technically speaking, LEGO Fortnite is a masterpiece. Built inside Fortnite and powered by Unreal Engine 5, it offers an ultra-realistic LEGO experience. You can place, connect, and break apart bricks as if they were right in front of you. The game’s vast 95 square kilometer world, made possible by World Partition and Procedural Content Generation, will leave you in awe.

The game utilizes World Partition to stream all 95 square kilometers of playable space (that’s 19x the size of the Fortnite Battle Royale Island!), and uses the Procedural Content Generation (PCG) framework to dynamically create detailed environments.

And there’s a real-world treat too! To celebrate the launch, four humongous LEGO brick-built Supply Llamas have popped up in New York, London, Tokyo, and Sydney. Standing 12-feet tall and comprising over 234,623 LEGO bricks, these are a sight to behold! If you’re around during launch weekend, don’t miss the fun building activities and surprises.

But wait, there’s more! The LEGO Group isn’t new to Unreal Engine. They’ve been using it for LEGO DREAMZzz™ and LEGO NINJAGO™, and they’re now digitizing thousands of LEGO elements for creators to use in Fortnite’s creative tools come 2024. It’s all about bridging the gap between physical and digital play in ways never seen before.

The LEGO Group and Epic Games have more LEGO-themed Fortnite games lined up for next year. So, stay tuned!

Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group, sums it up perfectly: “This partnership with Epic Games is all about creating digital play experiences that are both fun and safe. It’s a new chapter in blending physical and digital play to inspire kids and creators alike.

Tim Sweeney, CEO & Founder of Epic Games, echoes this excitement, noting that LEGO Fortnite is a new avenue for creative expression and a significant step in evolving the Fortnite ecosystem.
