Explorer Emile is an exclusive Fortnite skin tied to the Fortnite x LEGO crossover and the brand-new LEGO Fortnite survival crafting game inside Fortnite. To get Explorer Emile, sign up to LEGO Insiders and link your Epic Games and LEGO accounts.

LEGO Insiders is LEGO Group's loyalty program. Members get points for playing and making purchases and can exchange their points for exclusive rewards, discounts, experiences, etc. Best of all, joining LEGO Insiders is entirely free!

Explorer Emile will begin showing up in Lockers on December 7, 2023, when LEGO Fortnite goes live in the game. This skin is usable in LEGO Fortnite and other modes, like Battle Royale and Creative.

To connect your LEGO account with Fortnite, start by opening and signing into your Epic Games account. Next, hover over your display name and click Account, then click on Apps and Accounts and select Accounts. Here, click Connect for the LEGO account, then click on Connect Account.

If you follow these steps to a tee, you'll get redirected to a new window where you can sign into your existing LEGO account or create a brand-new LEGO account. Once you do that, click Allow to officially link your Epic Games and LEGO accounts!

There's plenty of incentive to connect your LEGO account with Fortnite, especially if you were a LEGO enjoyer prior to the reveal of LEGO Fortnite. If nothing else, connect the two accounts to ensure you get the free Explorer Emilie skin!
