The LEGO Group and Epic Games have introduced new LEGO tools in Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN) and Fortnite Creative, enabling creators worldwide to design and publish their own LEGO Islands within the game. This collaboration, announced at the 2024 Game Developers Conference, aims to empower Fortnite creators with the creative potential of the LEGO System in Play.

Creators are provided with LEGO Templates to facilitate the creation process and offer a variety of play experiences for gamers of all ages. Additionally, the LEGO Group has unveiled three new LEGO Islands within Fortnite, expanding the game’s creative possibilities.

The integration of LEGO elements, styles, and brand assets into Fortnite’s creative tools allows for the development of diverse experiences, which must adhere to ESRB and PEGI rating guidelines to ensure accessibility and safety for players. Creators enrolled in the Fortnite Island Creator Program may also receive payouts for their creations.

This initiative marks another milestone in the ongoing partnership between Epic Games and The LEGO Group, following the launch of LEGO Fortnite in December 2023. The new LEGO Islands include LEGO Prop Hunt, LEGO Battle Arena, and LEGO Cat Island Adventure, each offering unique gameplay experiences.

Kari Vinther Nielsen, Head of Play & Creator Growth at LEGO GAME, expressed excitement about democratizing creativity and enabling creators to leverage the LEGO brand in unprecedented ways. The LEGO Group plans to introduce additional LEGO-themed experiences in Fortnite throughout 2024 and beyond.
