Are you stuck trying to figure out how to invite an NPC to live in your village in LEGO Fortnite? You'll encounter many NPCs on your adventures in the new Fortnite mode, but they'll only move into your base if it meets their requirements.

This guide details what you need to do to get an NPC to live in your village in the brand-new survival crafting game from LEGO Group and Epic Games.

How to invite an NPC to live in your village

Before you can invite an NPC to live in your village, you need to create one! To start your own village, you must build a Village Square. And to build a Village Square, you need 10 Wood and 10 Granite.

If you're in Survival mode, you won't be able to make a Village Square until you've spoken to the Cuddle Team Leader and completed introductory objectives like building a Campfire, a Simple Shack, and a Bed.

Once you unlock the recipe for a Village Square, build it, and visitors will begin dropping by your village!

To invite an NPC to live in your village, hang out by your Village Square and keep an eye out for visitors. When one appears, speak with them and invite them to live in your village.

They'll only accept your proposition if you have a spot for them to sleep, so make sure you have a free bed available before extending the offer! Once an NPC officially settles in, you'll earn credit toward one of Trailblazer Tai's Quests and be a step closer to unlocking that free skin.

NPCs are eager to help! You can instruct your villagers to work various jobs, from gathering specific resources, cooking recipes, or even joining you on your travels and assisting you in fighting baddies.

The more you upgrade your village, the more useful your loyal NPCs will be!

Which characters can you get as NPCs?

If the Character or Outfit is playable in LEGO Fortnite, you can probably recruit it as an NPC! Cuddle Team Leader is the first NPC you'll encounter, but you can invite Meowscles, Peely, Aura, Raptor, Beef Boss, and an array of other Characters to live in your village in LEGO Fortnite.

Which NPCs visit your Village Square is mostly random, so you'll need some luck to find your favourites. To increase your odds of running into a particular NPC, upgrade your village to unlock Must-See Destination, which allows rarer explorers to visit your base. You can also scour the world for lost explorers!

So, that's everything you need to know about how to invite an NPC to live in your village in LEGO Fortnite. Not only is inviting a character to live in your village a challenge in the free True Explorers Quest Pack, but villagers are a huge asset to any base!
