If you are one of the fans of Fortnite who have been waiting forever for the LEGO collaboration to release, there’s finally some good news for you. The rumors of the collab have been going on since April of this year, with leakers trying their best to find out about the release date of the much-awaited crossover. Now there has been an official confirmation from both the parties that the Fortnite x LEGO crossover is going to come to the game on December 7, 2023, and it won’t be like every other collaboration. Here’s everything we know about it.
LEGO first partnered with Fortnite way back in April 20222
Epic Games and LEGO Group jointly announced back in April 2022 that they are planning on a long-term collaboration whose main aim will be to build a kid-friendly metaverse on a large scale. Even though they have now officially announced the release date through their very new official YouTube channel, they are still pretty secretive about all the specific details of the crossover.
The 22-second long video mostly shows us the date December 7, 2023, along with glimpses of the LEGO version of characters such as the Supply Llama and Brite Bomber. But according to previous leaks, there will be a whole separate game mode inside Fortnite for LEGO as a part of the crossover. This is going to be an open-world mode which will be a surviving crafting adventure.
The new game mode will introduce three distinct biomes
It has also received the ESRB’s E10+ certification and has been rated T for teens. The LEGO Fortnite mode is also said to feature various other components such as mining mechanics along with a building tool with nine slots for schematics. It’s also going to have HP and energy systems. They are also introducing LEGO Styles for every character you own already at no additional cost. This will make your normal skins look like LEGO figurines.
The promotional artwork also featured three different biomes which were a rocky desert, a lush forest, and snowy mountains. It also features various Fortnite mascots like Peely, Cuddle Team Leader and Brite Bomber along with the Nightmare Shark Shop from the LEGO DREAMZzz set and the Minifigure Lizard Man.
LEGO Styles is going to feature more than 12000 LEGO versions of existing skins
The new game mode is also bringing LEGO Styles along with it which will turn more than 12000 skins into their LEGO versions. If you own any of the skins from this set, you will automatically be granted its LEGO Styles version and won’t need to buy or acquire it separately. But if you want to get a LEGO Style of skin you don’t already have, you can get it from the Item Shop in Fortnite.
