While yet to be officially announced, the upcoming Fortnite x Lego in-game collaboration is far from a secret.

Thanks to data mines, leaks, and hints from Epic, we’ve gathered a surprising amount of information on what’s to come — here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s Lego collaboration.

What Is the Lego x Fortnite Collaboration?

Although the LEGO Group and Epic Games announced a long-term partnership in April 2022, we’ve yet to see Lego’s iconic bricks and Minifigures pop up in Fortnite itself.

Epic and Lego promised to build an “immersive, creatively inspiring and engaging digital experience for kids of all ages to enjoy together.” Due to numerous leaks over the past few months, we know that that experience will be inside Fortnite and is likely linked to the recent age-rating restrictions.

According to Fortnite Creative data miner BeastFNCreative, the Lego x Fortnite collaboration will be a permanent mode seemingly inspired by Minecraft and Lego Worlds. Players can build using Lego bricks, craft weapons like the Stud Gun, battle enemies, and explore a world made of Lego.

Here’s a complete list of everything we know about Fortnite x Lego from Beast’s data mining:

  • Players play as a Minifigure
  • Many emotes have been redesigned to work on Minifigures (Credit: iFiremonkey)
  • Players can build freely using Lego bricks, though there are multiple presets for quick building

When Does the Lego x Fortnite Collaboration Release?

According to prolific leaker HYPEX, BeastFnCreative, and SplushFNBR, The Fortnite x Lego crossover is set to release on December 7, 2023. It’s important to note that there has been no official announcement about the game mode, let alone the release date, so don’t set your hopes too high just yet.

Leaks in previous months, such as those posted by ShiinaBR, suggested that the Lego mode wouldn’t be released until after Chapter 5, which is likely to launch in December following the end of Fortnite OG. We’ll just have to wait and see!

Will There Be Lego Cosmetics and Skins in Fortnite Battle Royale?

There haven’t been any trusted leaks to suggest that there are Lego-themed cosmetics or skins for Fortnite Battle Royale itself. But let’s be honest here; there probably will be. I’m saving up my V-Bucks, just in case.

Are There Physical Fortnite Lego Sets?

No real-world Fortnite Lego sets have been officially announced, but various rumors are suggesting that Fortnite Lego sets will be released in early 2024. Do you see a pattern here?

Three Fortnite sets have reportedly been found through Lego’s certification portal: a small llama (featured in the post above) and two BrickHeadz sets. The llama comes in a poly bag, typical for small Lego gifts given away during promotions.

While you’re waiting for the Lego collab to arrive, don’t forget to complete your OG Pass before Fortnite OG ends on December 2. If you’re struggling for XP, check out our hidden gnome location guide for some easy levels.
