We’ll show you how to play LEGO Fortnite, and how to create a world to play in.

How to play LEGO Fortnite

LEGO Fortnite main menu

Regardless of what platform you’re on, boot up Fortnite like normal, then in the main menu where you usually select what mode you play, you’ll be able to find LEGO Fortnite listed in the “By Epic” playlist. Select this and you’ll be taken to the LEGO Fortnite screen and – if you have a compatible skin – it will transform into its LEGO-ified version.

Before you can get playing you will need to create a world, and all you have to do is press the button in the usual place when entering a Fortnite match. You’ll be greeted with a quick options menu where you can select between survival or sandbox mode, as well as turn off features like hunger, hostile mobs, or death entirely.

Once selected, you will need to queue briefly for matchmaking, as you have to be online to play this mode - even if playing solo.
