FORTNITE TEAMS UP WITH LEGO FOR NEW SURVIVAL GAME MODE
In an exciting collaboration that has gamers and Lego enthusiasts buzzing with anticipation, popular video game Fortnite has partnered with Lego to create a new survival game mode. This game mode allows players to tap into their creativity and craft their own structures using Lego bricks.
The inspiration behind this collaboration seems to have come from the phenomenal success of Minecraft, the block-building and crafting game that is considered the best-selling game of all time. Fortnite’s new survival mode is a departure from its well-known battle royale mode, where players compete online to be the last person standing. Instead, players can now delve into a world of building structures and crafting tools and weapons, reminiscent of Minecraft’s gameplay.
The new survival game mode is accessible for free on multiple platforms, including PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch, allowing gamers to enjoy the Lego experience no matter their preferred gaming device. The partnership with Lego brings Fortnite back to its roots, with over 1,000 Lego minifigures based on Fortnite skins available to use within the game.
Players will be delighted to see that the game world has been transformed with structures and characters inspired by Lego products. From building fences to growing vegetables and chopping down trees for materials, the survival mode incorporates elements that fans of Minecraft will find familiar. This new game mode serves as a testament to Fortnite’s desire to expand its audience beyond the battle royale mode by appealing to a wide range of ages, from kids to teens to adults.
Although Fortnite is primarily geared towards players aged 12 and over, the collaboration with Lego has resulted in a new E10+ rating, making it more accessible for younger audiences. Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, has implemented parental controls and online safety features to ensure a safe and suitable gaming experience for players of all ages.
Fortnite’s previous partnerships with real-life celebrities have garnered attention, with in-game concerts featuring Marshmello and Ariana Grande. However, this collaboration with Lego presents new opportunities for both companies. Lego, known for its ambition and experimentation, is looking to tap into the booming gaming industry, while Fortnite aims to further solidify its position as a leading game in the market.
Despite Fortnite’s past criticism for its addictive nature, Eurogamer editor-in-chief Tom Phillips argues that individuals have the freedom to choose whether or not to engage with shooting games like Fortnite. By introducing a survival mode that focuses on creativity and crafting, Fortnite offers an alternative for players seeking a different gaming experience.
With Fortnite and Lego joining forces, the possibilities are endless for gamers and Lego enthusiasts alike. Exciting times lie ahead as players dive into a world where building, survival, and imagination collide.
