The delightful 2 minute long trailer focuses on the unique humor both intellectual properties provide, along with showcasing content that is reminiscent of the original Fortnite model, Save the World.

PlayStation Blog Correspondent, De’Angelo Epps, offered some additional information on these new modes.
Fortnite has evolved from a tower-defense survival game to the world’s most popular battle royale, virtual concert host, and developer playground. Now Epic Games is introducing a new title into the groundbreaking Fortnite ecosystem: LEGO Fortnite.
We had the opportunity to get an early hands-on experience to get a small, yet very promising taste of Epic’s new offering to the world of Fortnite. Play Video
LEGO Fortnite introduces the creativity of LEGO to Fortnite’s virtual canvas. The new free-to-play game lets players stretch their imagination, whether it’s creating the ultimate LEGO world or venturing out to the mysterious bricky unknown. Adventures come in two flavors: Survival and Creative.
Survival throws players into a world where the goal is to become an explorer and innovator. This mode is all about taking a multitude of LEGO playsets, combining them, and making a massive play experience. The world is wonderfully huge and presents enticing possibilities that keep your creative juices and sense of adventure flowing. It always feels like there’s something new to discover and progress toward, whether it’s unlocking a new lava-filled underground biome or finding a giant rock-covered desert creature. Play Video
Another main goal in Survival is to create your village, complete with tool-creating machinery, crops, and villagers to work jobs. The village system shines here with you unlocking more villagers to grow your settlement and eventually adventure on your behalf. Your imagination may lead to builds beyond simple towns, like perhaps a flying fortress held up by balloons, or a buoyant settlement floating on the sea.
Creative mode ratchets up imagination further, presenting players with a complete sandbox to play in. The amount of freedom in crafting here is wild. Creation mirrors your real-life LEGO options, either following instructions for a preset build or freestyle crafting something original from the ground up? The game physics are a delightful blend of grounded and cartoonish. Big builds might wobble under their own weight like in real life, whereas explosions send bricks flying dramatically.I’m excited to see what types of complex contraptions players create with this impressive toolset.
You can play both of LEGO Fortnite’s modes for free in Fortnite starting today.PlayStation Blog
Along with this, players can experience Fortnite‘s recent World’s Collide update. This includes LEGO variants for every skin, new characters to unlock, an updated map, plus Peter Griffin finally joining the fight.
