Even though the launch of LEGO Fortnite was a pretty dramatic blast for players who couldn't have expected that the crossover would result in a Don't Starve-alike adventure, player numbers have begun to plateau.

The mode is fantastic, but even the best of the best experience levelling like this. Player numbers have naturally sunk since the millions fought with Fortnite's servers for access, and now, fans are wondering what could be next. Will new LEGO skins be enough to tempt players in, or do we need new content lumped on top?

Chances are, the latter is going to be what the game needs for a little burst. And thankfully, new rumours point to just that.

LEGO Fortnite could be getting mod support and DLCs

Long-time Fortnite followers will know that anonymous surveys get sent out to players every once in a while. It's a way for Epic Games to test the waters on the popularity of licenced characters, features, and additions to the game to figure out whether it's worth chucking them into Fortnite.

There is never any guarantee that an IP or feature appearing in the survey is 100% coming to the game, but we've seen it happen before with certain IP, like Family Guy and League of Legends.

Now, a new survey is indicating something entirely different - it's asking players why they have chosen to start multiple worlds in their LEGO Fortnite games. Epic asks the survey recipient if they did so because they wanted to use mods, or if they wanted to use DLCs.

This is curious, as neither exists for LEGO Fortnite yet. It indicates to many that this survey could have been pushed out by mistake, intended for a time after the game releases DLC or mods. But this does mean that more, potentially unofficial, crossovers could be coming to the game.

LEGO Fortnite's Mod tease could be a red herring

This is exciting for fans, but right now, we don't know exactly where Fortnite stands with modding. The game naturally doesn't feature mods as an online, often competitive game. Still, Creative stands as the place where you can be...creative. 

Now that LEGO Fortnite has brought an official insular experience with enough fans to produce a modding community reasonably (sorry, Save the World, it just wasn't your time), the conversation has to arise - will Epic Games welcome mods or punish them?

Only time will tell, but for now, all we have is this tease. We're probably more likely to get DLC than mods, as then Epic Games will at least profit - but we'll have to wait and see.
