Fortnite will have a collaboration with LEGO starting next December, and it looks like it will be one of the biggest events in the game after the launch of UEFN. Not only that, from the known information we can deduce that Epic Games intends to create a mode similar to Minecraft.

Fortnite x LEGO: Everything we know about the new collaboration

Over the past few weeks, the Fortnite community has been buzzing about a new LEGO game mode. The fact that the LEGO logo was added to the Fortnite servers confirmed for the first time that these were not rumors or hearsay, but something completely real. The Discord data mining server bot Fortnite Central caught the upload of this official image to the Fortnite servers.

On the other hand, popular dataminer HYPEX shared and summarized many details about the LEGO game mode in Fortnite, including the release date, in a tweet. Namely:

  • The LEGO game mode will be available on December 7, 2023.
  • We will be able to play as LEGO characters.
  • Some of the available items are: LEGO stud guns, workbenches, beds, fences, catapults, map markers, ziplines, and consumables such as potions.
  • We can collect resources from the scenery and build objects with a construction tool.
  • There will be an HP and energy system.
  • There will be beds with curtains where we can sleep to regenerate health and energy, and we can initiate a sleep vote when we play with more people.
  • There will be vendors to sell items, camps to sleep in, and enemies to fight.
  • There will be a crafting mechanic and an inventory.
  • It will be possible to use special versions of emotes and dances adapted for this game mode.
  • We will be able to show a wide range of emotions such as sadness, happiness, or anger.
  • The available movement mechanics are sliding, swimming, gliding, flying, running, walking, and falling, and there is fall damage.

The description of several of these elements, such as the use of a health bar and another of energy and beds that serve to sleep and recover, both give to think that Fortnite would create a game mode similar to Minecraft, but with LEGO. Minecraft is the most successful and best-selling video game of all time, with over 300 million copies sold. While Fortnite has also been a huge success that has made Epic Games itself grow to unprecedented levels, it does not seem unreasonable to think that they would want to create a game mode similar to Mojang’s title and also use the LEGO brand to give it more legitimacy and not have the public think it is a cheap copy.

In addition, this new game mode would have been the catalyst for Epic Games to implement a new age rating system that prevents the use of certain outfits and objects in maps that are rated for all audiences. Part of Minecraft’s success lies in its low age rating for child-friendly content; in America, it is rated E, which means it is recommended for players seven and older.

This would not be the first time that LEGO and Minecraft have crossed paths: there are many LEGO sets based on Mojang’s popular video game. This is “keeping it all in the family.”

In any case, we’ll have to wait for the end of the Fortnite OG season in early December 2023 before we can learn more about this collaboration and see if it’s really that much like Minecraft or not.
