Epic Games recently revealed its new LEGO Fortnite update, and it has led to increased interest in the mode - as though it needed it. The shock launch of the game mode, along with the slow trickle of Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival, led to an all-time player high for Fortnite.

While we originally thought it would be impossible to top the huge success of the OG season, this new brand of creativity has lured you back. Still, Fortnite is performing massively well by providing a survival experience with a plastic sheen, and players aren't letting up yet - but things could be about to get even bigger.

Custom LEGO Fortnite maps could be on the way

According to Fortnite leaker HYPEX, we could be in for a lot more excitement when it comes to the game's LEGO offshoot, as Epic Games appears to be using the aesthetic in a new project.

Epic Games is reportedly working on an update called Atom, and it intends to bring new LEGO collabs with Duplo, Technic, City and more. This will apparently all lead to new pieces and sets being added to the game in order for you to build your own experiences from both existing LEGO sets and custom-imported ones.

This is a huge deal, especially when considering how extensive the worlds of LEGO are in intentional sets and pieces alone, and according to HYPEX, it could be about to get better for blocky superfans.

HYPEX continues to suggest that there could be a means of manking money from your builds in LEGO Fortnite's new venture, as he claims that leaker Shiina spotted a quote in the game's backend, reading, "In order to Publish a LEGO® island you are required to review the terms and conditions and understand the revenue rules."

We've seen the popularity of people making bank off their imaginative LEGO builds in real life, so why not turn that into something inside the world of Fortnite? It's a compelling claim, and it could make for a genuinely brilliant platform that players could spend hundreds of hours in. The platform-ification of Fortnite continues.
