In tandem with Fortnite’s own updates released this week, LEGO Fortnite got updated, too, with some new features, gameplay adjustments, and skins for players to check out. Namely, LEGO Fortnite players should now see more of their Fortnite skins carry over to the LEGO game with cosmetics like ones for Spider-Man, Wolverine, Thanos, Ahsoka Tano, and more added to LEGO Fortnite. The same update also added some helpful quality of life features like one that makes it so that players no longer have to stop moving every time they want to eat something.
In addition to these new LEGO versions of existing Fortnite skins, players will also notice that some of their existing LEGO Fortnite skins have been updated to have higher quality versions. These changes apply to original Fortnite skins, not licensed ones, but if you for some reason prefer the old look and not the more detailed ones, you’ll have the option to switch back in February when that feature is added.
With that said, here’s what’s new in LEGO Fortnite this week:
LEGO Fortnite Patch Notes
Launch Pads added
Placing a build will now remove any small bushes, rocks, or plants that are in the way.
You can now more reliably place builds on slopes.
Want more Building Parts? A variety of new sizes and styles for Floors, Walls, and Roofs have been added so you can fill in gaps and have more options available!
You can now abandon a build in progress. This will leave any parts already placed and remove the blue preview parts so you can continue customizing your creation.
It’s now more obvious when you’re using Snap Mode, and we’ve added more snap points to Building Parts so that they lock together easier.
Bushranger, Rustler, and Tomatohead can now appear as potential Villagers to join your adventure!
Villages can now be instantly removed with the “Delete Village” option in the Village Square. This new option is available to the world owner and keyholders.
Don’t want a Villager in town anymore? You can now remove them by getting rid of their bed and then asking them to leave.
Chest rewards have been improved with better loot, especially those from fighting enemies and solving puzzles.
Blasters have wandered out of their caves and can be found in the desert, making Blast Cores easier to obtain.
Speaking of caves, Brutes have found their way into some — be careful down there!
Hermit Crabs now attack your Villagers, and they attack back!
You can now get rid of any unwanted items, like a Skeleton’s pickaxe ;), by throwing them in a Campfire.
We’ve added a legend to the map to show players’ respawn and backpack locations.
