LEGO, the globally acclaimed plastic brick brand, has officially ventured into the Fortnite metaverse with a set of new adventures.
Fortnite’s latest update, v28.00, introduces over 1,200 LEGO-themed costumes and new emotes, enriching the Fortnite experience. These additions pave the way for upcoming LEGO adventures within Fortnite, featuring the all-new LEGO Fortnite crafting and survival game.
In anticipation of the scheduled launch on December 7, 2023, players are urged to link their Epic Games and LEGO accounts. This linkage unlocks the Explorer Emilie Fortnite outfit and LEGO style, both of which will be accessible in their in-game Locker upon release.
While specific details about the game remain undisclosed, this development follows the official collaboration announcement between LEGO and Epic Games in June. The partnership emphasized bringing the LEGO world into the Fortnite metaverse, with a particular focus on the Creative aspect rather than the Battle Royale mode.
This marks LEGO’s continued foray into the metaverse, building on their 2022 announcement of a long-term collaboration with Epic Games. The shared goal is to ensure a secure metaverse environment for children, prioritizing safety, privacy, and providing tools that empower both children and adults to control their digital experiences.
