LEGO Islands – New Play Experiences within Fortnite

The LEGO Group has today launched two all-new play experiences within Fortnite, for fans of all ages to discover and enjoy together. ‘LEGO Raft Survival’ and ‘LEGO Obby Fun’ are available now within Fortnite, offering action-packed challenges for players, centered around classic LEGO themes and play. The LEGO Group will launch several more LEGO-themed experiences inside Fortnite throughout 2024 and beyond. Details below.

‘LEGO Raft Survival’ and ‘LEGO Obby Fun’ are the first in a new series of play experiences within Fortnite, dubbed LEGO Islands, a series of kid and family-friendly LEGO-themed experiences that have been created using Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN). They are available to play now within Fortnite and are borne from favorite childhood memories of some of the LEGO Group’s own developers!

‘LEGO Raft Survival’ combines frenetic multiplayer problem-solving with the classic LEGO Pirates theme, as the infamous Blackbeard challenges players and their friends to stay afloat on a raft in unfriendly waters! Players must survive on their raft against the cannon balls shot from the Barracuda Ship, collecting wood and treasures as resources and building more rafts.

‘LEGO Obby Fun’ is the first official LEGO-themed obstacle course on Fortnite, that offers a LEGO-inspired take on climbing and problem solving through brick-built platforms designed by actual LEGO designers and packed with hot dogs, pizzas, unicorns, and much more.

Players are spawned randomly on a section of course inspired by popular LEGO themes (including LEGO Friends, LEGO City, LEGO Ninjago, and LEGO DreamZzz). The experience offers a different challenge each time to put their skills to the test – either solo or with friends.

The two LEGO Islands are the first LEGO-themed experiences within Fortnite to follow 2023’s popular launch of LEGO Fortnite, an all-new survival crafting game where the magic of LEGO building and Fortnite collide. The LEGO Fortnite journey is just beginning, with new world-building, gameplay features, and more LEGO Style Outfits arriving in updates throughout 2024. To learn more about the game, visit the official LEGO FORTNITE PAGE.

LEGO Fortnite was the first play experience to come from the long-term partnership between Epic Games and the LEGO Group to develop fun and safe digital spaces for children and families. All experiences in Fortnite, including LEGO Islands and LEGO Fortnite, utilize the Epic Games parental controls and safety features.

Players within Fortnite can experience LEGO Islands and LEGO Fortnite dressed in their favorite LEGO Styles, available from their Locker, bringing a new dynamic of LEGO fun to the creative games.

And there’s more to come – as the LEGO Group will unveil several more LEGO-themed experiences inside Fortnite throughout 2024 and beyond.

“We’re thrilled to introduce players to the first of our creative and fun LEGO Islands series of play experiences within Fortnite,” said Kari Vinther Nielsen, Head of Play & Creator Growth at LEGO GAME. “The power of UEFN, in the hands of our creative teams, is what makes these experiences possible and allows us to expand new genres across Fortnite, infused with LEGO play. We can’t wait to introduce even more as the year goes on – this is only the beginning!”

    That’s cool. I’m going to check it out.

    Haven’t played lego games for a while but I might give this a try. I still miss the old games.

    There are no micro-transactions in these games? Many Lego games have played the micro-transaction angle extensively, despite how controversial it is…

      Fornite does have micro transactions, but I don’t know about the LEGO part.

      You can purchase optional skins and other goodies. I think they are planning to add more. Right now they are focusing on growing their fanbase.

        Oh, dang. I hate micro-transactions! Oh, well…

    I’m lost! Are there regular bricks (and instructions) that one can build? Or is everything virtual? Is it “just” a game like the old Lego games?
    Raft Survival looks like a nice model to add to a pirate collection.
    Someone please advise. Thank you.

      They’re games.

      I guess “obby” is short for “obstacle”, although it took me some time to realize it. Maybe it’s modern gaming slang.

      Mark, it’s just an online game right now, but perhaps LEGO will make some related sets in the future. 🙂
