More LEGO Fortnite


The launch of LEGO Fortnite survival mode has been a massive hit! Adding to the fun, two new creative islands dropped on the platform: LEGO Obby Fun and LEGO Raft Survival. In an attempt to offer more family friendly fare, Fortnite is building more games of all types. In this case, obstacle courses typically found on Roblox are very popular with younger audiences. As an added bonus, these games can be played with up to four people. This addition of two new islands shows that there’s no limit to what can be built with UEFN creative tools!

You can revisit the thrilling tale by playing as the shark or a terrified swimmer. This survival game encourages teamwork among the swimmers to complete missions and of course, kill the shark. With an exciting premise like this, they’ll have boatloads of players clamoring to try…It looks like they’re gonna need a bigger beta!
