Fortnite`s Two Big New Game Modes Lego and Rocket Racing


Lego Fortnite

Lego Fortnite is committed to authenticity. During a recent preview, the game’s creators emphasized their efforts to digitally recreate 10,000 real Lego bricks, which were then used to design creatures and characters in accordance with actual Lego set guidelines. While a 30-minute demo didn’t provide sufficient time to fully explore the game’s systems, it certainly left a lasting impression of its potential.

Despite Lego Fortnite launching within Fortnite, it’s more accurate to describe it as a standalone “game” rather than a “game mode”. This isn’t just a reskin of the original; Lego Fortnite introduces a new, procedurally generated map that’s 20 times larger than the battle royale, filled with NPCs to interact with, enemies to combat, and resources to gather and items to create.


The game shares familiar features with other survival crafting games, such as a hunger meter and the need to collect wood. However, it also introduces innovative systems, including a village building feature where players can build a town, invite NPCs to reside there, and assign them tasks such as resource gathering or tool crafting.

Perhaps the most thrilling aspect is the vehicle construction feature, which I didn’t get to fully explore. The developers showcased several possibilities, suggesting that Lego Fortnite provides extensive building options similar to the Tears of the Kingdom game. You can create anything from a mobile home with wheels and a rocket engine to a makeshift airship attached to balloons.

During testing, one player reportedly built an entire floating village on an airship, complete with NPCs performing their tasks as the city drifted through the sky. Other early creations included a castle constructed around an underground lava river and a rollercoaster made from wheels along a wooden track.

Lego Fortnite integrates some of the best features from other survival crafting games, including the option to allow friends to play in your world and make progress even when you’re offline. There’s also a full sandbox mode equivalent to Minecraft’s Creative mode. And just like the original Fortnite, Lego Fortnite will receive continued support and regular content updates.

While it may take many hours to fully appreciate all that Lego Fortnite has to offer, the game is already showing great promise and I’m excited to delve deeper. The good news is, Lego Fortnite has already launched, and it’s poised to become one of the best Lego games on the market.

Fortnite Rocket Racing

Fortnite’s latest addition, Rocket Racing, is an adrenaline-fueled arcade racer brought to you by Psyonix, the developers behind Rocket League. This game challenges your driving skills with its gravity-defying mechanics and captures the same competitive spirit as its predecessor, but this time, on a racetrack. This article will give you insights into Rocket Racing’s gameplay, with a glance at its future content and cosmetics.

Driving Mechanics Rocket Racing deviates from traditional car racing games where the focus is solely on perfecting turns and drifts. In addition to these classic race mechanics, you also need to be aware of your surroundings to find alternative routes, thereby giving you a competitive edge. This game combines elements of Mario Kart and Forza Motorsport.

By utilizing the Air Dodge move, you can divert from the traditional track and stick to unconventional surfaces like ceilings or walls, helping you evade obstacles or catch a ceiling-based speed boost.

Thrusters allow you to float in air, not only during ramp jumps but also to discover near out-of-bounds raceways. However, keep in mind that jumping and flying can slow down your acceleration.

Speed is gained when racing on surfaces, as it charges your boost meter. Drifting around corners can earn you more turbo charges, which can be used to thrust forward, providing a short burst of speed. You can store up to three turbo charges at a time.

Drifting is automatic during turns in Rocket Racing, but manually activating the drift button can result in a sharper turn, leading to an increased speed boost when you hit the straightaway.

An initial boost can be achieved at the beginning of races by hitting the accelerate button at the right moment. The boost percentage depends on your timing, so ensure your finger’s ready on the button to achieve at least an 80% acceleration boost.

Vehicle Customization Rocket Racing stands out with its extensive customization options. For the first time in Fortnite, you can fully personalize your vehicle, from changing the body and secondary colors to adding decals and modifying the wheels. Moreover, these customizations also apply to the vehicles in Battle Royale.

Maps and Competitive Mode Rocket Racing currently offers 26 racetracks set in three biomes from the Fortnite ecosystem: Canyon, Forest, and Jungle, with more additions expected monthly.

Beyond the casual mode, which allows up to 12 racers in your party and lobby to play on any map, there is a ranked mode where you can compete against three other players. As you progress, the maps increase in difficulty and size. Depending on the map size, you will need to complete between three to five laps to finish a race.

Although using a controller is recommended for smoother controls, keyboard and mouse are also an option. Rocket Racing is now available on Fortnite across all platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Nintendo Switch.
