LEGO Fortnite is officially live, offering players an all-new “survival craft” gameplay right inside Fortnite‘s existing title menu.

In LEGO Fortnite, players can explore a vast map (which Epic says is 19 times the size of Fortnite‘s battle royale island) as classic characters including Brite Bomber, Cuddle Team Leader and Raven — but in a new LEGO form. Players will be tasked with collecting food, resources and craft items in order to prepare for battle against enemies, in solo matches or alongside friends.

With craft items, players will be able to build customizable defense shelters, where they can recruit villagers to collect materials for nighttime survival. To secure rare resources, players will need to gear up and explore deep caves, where there are also a number of hidden areas on the map.

“There was a natural opportunity here,” Adam Sussman, president of Epic Games, told Hypebeast. “The LEGO brand is an expert in physical play. Epic Games is an expert in digital play. We were able to join forces and create something that leveraged our strengths and the power of our technology to really build on the idea of bringing creative play to the world.”

LEGO Fortnite is only just getting started, and Epic has plans to update the title with new world-building features, gameplay options and LEGO Style outfits in early 2024. Fortnite is available to play for free on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and on PC.

Watch the official trailer for LEGO Fortnite above.
