The hit video game Fortnite has become well known for its series of impressive crossovers with every franchise from Marvel to The Walking Dead, and recently they’ve started a collaboration with one of the biggest other games and entertainment brands out there: LEGO.

This exciting collaboration with one of the world’s most beloved toy companies has been big news for Fortnite fans and LEGO fans alike. What do you need to know about LEGO Fortnite? Read on below to find out.

What is LEGO Fortnite? Is it a Battle Royale Game?

LEGO Fortnite is a sandbox survival game where you explore a unique world, collect resources, craft weapons, and build LEGO villages and fortresses. LEGO Fortnite isn’t a battle royale game like the original Fortnite; instead, it’s a creative and challenging solo experience similar to Minecraft or Terraria. 

LEGO Fortnite lets you battle quirky LEGO monsters, solve puzzles, and customize your character with iconic Fortnite skins, all in a world that’s a combination of Fortnite’s impressive graphics and the classic LEGO blocks.

How Popular is LEGO Fortnite?

Given the popularity of the two brands individually, it’s no surprise that the crossover LEGO Fortnite has been immensely popular in the weeks since its release. In fact, the game had over 2.5 million concurrent players on the Saturday after it was released. This accounts for players on all platforms from console to PC and even on Android.

Is LEGO Fortnite a Permanent Mode?

Yes, LEGO Fortnite is a permanent mode in Fortnite! Epic Games has confirmed that the new mode isn’t a limited-time event; it’s here to stay. This means you can dive into your own LEGO world and build whatever you want without worrying about it disappearing.

This gives players plenty of time to master their building skills, explore the ever-evolving LEGO islands, and discover all the hidden secrets. Maybe Epic Games will even consider adding a LEGO-themed battle royale alongside the survival game at some point.

How Can I Play LEGO Fortnite?

LEGO Fortnite isn’t a separate game that requires its own download. In fact, it’s included in the new Season 5 update to the standard Fortnite game, along with a slew of other game modes. This makes it easier than ever for players who enjoy all types of games to come to Fortnite for something they’ll enjoy.

What’s Next for Fortnite?

With this new crossover, Epic Games has yet again proven itself to be one of the most innovative game studios in the industry. On the same day they released LEGO Fortnite, they also released two other game modes. The first of these was the Fortnite Festival, a rhythm game that lets players enjoy their favorite music in a social environment. The second was Rocket Racing, an arcade-style racing game in crossover with Rocket League, another Epic Games product.

The Fortnite development team has expressed their desire to turn Fortnite into a ‘place’ and make it a metaverse-style social and gaming experience and more than just one battle royale game.
