LEGO Pirates joins LEGO Fortnite in one of two new game modes

LEGO Pirates is joining LEGO Fortnite in one of two brand new game modes under the ‘LEGO Islands’ collection, and you can start playing right now.

The first in a slew of new play experiences coming to LEGO Fortnite in 2024, ‘LEGO Raft Survival’ and ‘LEGO Obby Fun’ are inspired by the childhood memories of the game’s developers. LEGO Raft Survival is anchored around LEGO Pirates, and tasks players with surviving aboard a raft – and collecting resources to build more rafts – while taking fire from Captain Blackbeard aboard the Black Seas Barracuda.

LEGO Obby Fun, meanwhile, is LEGO Fortnite’s first brick-built obstacle course. Players must navigate a series of platforms devised by actual LEGO designers, climbing and problem-solving your way to victory either on your own or with friends. You’ll drop into a randomly-spawned section of the course inspired by in-house LEGO themes like City, DREAMZzz, Friends and NINJAGO.

Both of these new modes have been created using the Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN). Recent reports suggest Epic Games is planning to open the sandbox of world creation up to players in the near future, so this twin-pack of experiences could offer some insight into what might be possible if and when that happens.

The LEGO Group says its Fortnite journey is ‘just beginning’, promising ‘new world-building, gameplay features and more LEGO style outfits arriving in updates throughout 2024’. For now, you can check out both of the LEGO Islands game modes by loading up LEGO Fortnite.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
