Hot on the heels of the Big Bang Event, Epic Games is this week releasing three brand new modes in Fortnite. Alongside the upcoming launch of Chapter 5 Season 1, Fortnite is also getting a Rocket League-style racing mode, a rhythm action mode inspired by Rock Band, and a free LEGO Fortnite mode.

The new survival mode inspired by the iconic line of toys will transform any Fortnite skin you already own into a LEGO version of it. At launch, over 1,200 skins will have a LEGO Style in addition to its regular Fortnite look.

If you want to get ready for the LEGO Fortnite release date on Thursday 7 December 2023, you can also claim a free LEGO Explorer Emilie skin by signing up to the LEGO Insiders program. Here's how you can claim the free cosmetic.
