'Fortnite' Will Introduce Rocket Racing, Fortnite Festival And LEGO Fortnite Next Week

by Rainier on Dec. 2, 2023 @ 12:16 p.m. PST

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus.

The last one standing wins.

Epic Games unveiled three brand new experiences coming to Fortnite: Rocket Racing; Fortnite Festival; and LEGO Fortnite, which is built in partnership with The LEGO Group. 

These new live-service games will launch in Fortnite later this week and be available globally to play for free.

LEGO Fortnite

LEGO Fortnite is the ultimate survival crafting LEGO adventure. It introduces vast, open worlds where the magic of LEGO building and Fortnite collide. Designed for people of all ages to enjoy together, the game will encourage creativity, experimentation and collaboration through play.
