From 7 December, Fortnite players will be able to jump into a whole new, blocky world as Epic and LEGO team up for the first time.

While not much is known at the moment, this is the start of a long-term partnership between the two companies which has room for physical LEGO sets as well as confirmed new skins in-game.

A new LEGO Fortnite game mode is coming soon

Part of the new Chapter will see a LEGO Fortnite game mode, which appears to be exactly what it says on the tin.

Players who wish to do so will be able to experience Fortnite in a LEGO world.

Epic Games described the mode as being "the ultimate survival crafting LEGO adventure.

“It introduces vast, open worlds where the magic of LEGO building and Fortnite collide.

“Designed for people of all ages to enjoy together, the game will encourage creativity, experimentation and collaboration through play." 

The LEGO game mode is described as the “first digital play experience” coming from the partnership between Epic and the LEGO group, meaning there is a good chance we may see more LEGO games coming to Fortnite in the future.

Over 1200 new LEGO skins will be coming to Fortnite

As part of the collaboration, over 1200 outfits have been given LEGO counterparts in Fortnite, so players can look the part as they explore the new map.

Not every outfit has a corresponding LEGO look, most likely due to licensing issues, however all original Epic skins will receive one.

Epic has also stated that more skins will be released regularly, so there is a possibility that some of these officially licensed characters will be turned into LEGO in time.

As well as this, two new game modes are coming to the Battle Royale turned sandbox.

The first, called Fortnite Festival, is a rhythm game which will see The Weeknd headlining an in-game concert to kick off the new mode.

As well as this, Rocket Racing, which is being developed by Rocket League developer Psyonix, will bring a “supersonic arcade racer” to Fortnite.
