New Details About the LEGO Fortnite Collab
Ahead of Fortnite Chapter 5, data miners have been scouring for as many details as they can get about the upcoming LEGO collaboration. Set to launch December 7, this latest update will allow players to use LEGO avatars and build an array of new structures. Leaks indicate the new game mode might take a page from Minecraft and employ procedural generation technology. Brick-by-brick, this would give players something new and unique each time they play.
Roblox Expanding to Meta VR
The Roblox empire spans multiple gaming platforms, most recently joining Playstation. Well, they’ve announced that soon they’ll be making the jump to VR. Players with a Meta Quest 2 or Quest Pro can hop into an open beta ahead of the upcoming full release. Developers will soon be able to publish their existing experiences to support VR with little to no additional coding effort required.
Once again, Roblox continues to impress with their efforts to become available on all platforms, including VR. With games like Livetopia, Roblox maintains its reputation as an attractive place to promote major film releases like Migration. In comparison, Fortnite stretches its format by borrowing the brick aesthetic of LEGO and in turn, Minecraft. It will be interesting to see how players engage with Fortnite in this way.
