When is the next Lego Fortnite update?


Lego Fortnite, introduced late last year, has continuously received updates, enriching the survival/building experience with fresh content. From the addition of vehicles to a constant influx of new Outfits and items, the game has kept players engaged and eager for more.

In many respects, Lego Fortnite stands as a distinct entity within the Fortnite ecosystem. While housed within Fortnite’s launcher, its gameplay leans more towards the survival-crafting genre, reminiscent of games like Minecraft. Players begin with nothing and embark on a resource-gathering journey to construct their Camp, gradually unlocking new items and technologies along the way. In our initial review, we lauded the game’s addictive progression loop and its visually stunning open-world environment.

For those eagerly anticipating the next Lego Fortnite update, Epic Games has yet to unveil details about the upcoming major release. However, stay tuned to this page for the latest updates.

A notable collaboration with Star Wars was launched on May 3, 2024, bringing a host of exciting additions.

Additionally, the update introduced new Lego outfits and accessories, further enriching the gaming experience.
