Play OverviewPlay Overview

Lego Fortnite (2023) is an adventure survival game that brings classic brick building to one of the Fortnite islands. Play is more like Minecraft than Fortnite (and perhaps could have been better named). Rather than shooting other players, you collaborate on survival and crafting, as you explore and conquer the large open world with other players.

You team up to create homesteads, farms and defences that enable you to survive the night against various enemies. Whether this is building overground or delving into caves to take on skeletons and lava-monsters the focus is on adventuring together rather than shooting each other. You can also grow vegetables, fence off livestock and set up campfire rally points.

As you progress you build an ever more impressive base and venture further into the wild. You can not only craft places to live but gain crossbows, axes and swords to aid you on your quests. There are even computer characters who can be recruited to gather valuable resources.

The result is a game that combines Lego building and Fortnite competition. With less death and destruction, it's designed for people of all ages to play together and encourages creativity, experimentation and collaboration.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for Violence. Violence is aimed at Lego characters who break apart into smaller bricks when defeated. Weapons include axes, swords and explosive barrels.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

In the US, ESRB state: From a third-person perspective, players explore the environment while gathering food, crafting tools/weapons, and building shelters. Players can use weapons (e.g., axes, swords, crossbows) to hunt down animals and defend against attacking enemies (e.g., giant crabs, wolves, skeletons, Lego survivors). Combat is accompanied by impact sounds and mild explosions; enemies burst into Lego pieces when defeated.

Skill Level

6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. With the focus more on imagination, building and creating this works well for younger players. You need to be able to get around the world, compete with other players and work together to build your home base. Really young players can opt for the Sandbox mode and turn off hunger, hostile mobs, and death.

Account Rating

An Epic Games account is required to play Lego Fortnite. If a player indicates they are under 13 or their country’s age of digital consent (whichever is higher) their account will be a Cabined Account. This still enables them to play Lego Fortnite but not access certain features such as voice chat until their parent or guardian provides consent.
 
You don’t need a platform subscription to play this game online.
