In recent times, Metaverse is the term that describes the vision of a shared online world. It merges the virtual world, augmented reality and the physical world. Users have a wide range of interaction options here. They move with their digital avatar in a common virtual space without internal borders.

Lego and Epic are now planning to bring such a space for children to play, build and communicate with each other to Fortnite as well. And all of this is going to be much bigger than we can imagine.

Fortnite x Lego Crossover: Everything We Know

Considering Lego is one of the most popular brands in the world, including them in Fortnite makes a lot of sense. Both the toy manufacturer and the video game developer would benefit.

The forthcoming collaboration appears to be another Fortnite Creative 2.0 project. According to GMatrixGames, one of the most prominent Fortnite leakers out there, Epic Games has been working on a Lego collaboration for a while. The dataminer found some data about the crossover in January and recently published more information about it.

The leaker claims that Epic Games is working on a Creative 2.0 map for the Fortnite x Lego crossover. HYPEX adds that NPCs/Bosses, Custom UI, Lego Models/World & something called "Adventures" will be available in the mode. Of course, that doesn't preclude cosmetic items from being released for the item shop as well.

Fortnite leaker Shiina recently discovered more files that state that the crossover will be coming to the game with patch 27.00. So far, xx.00 updates have always been about a new Fortnite Season. Naturally, this got the rumor mill bubbling, which is why insiders claim that the LEGO collaboration will be so big that it could be considered a new Season.

Details on the design of the virtual world are not yet known. However, it is important to the two companies that their metaverse will be child and family friendly. They aim to create an "immersive, creatively inspiring and engaging digital experience" that people of all ages can enjoy, according to a joint statement.

Fortnite x Lego Crossover Release Date

There are still no official details on dates, concept, business model and systems. Epic Games has been testing the map on test servers for a few months. If everything goes according to plan, they might even bring the collaboration into the game in Chapter 5. At least we can be sure that the Fortnite x Lego crossover will come to our Battle Royale island this year.
