Three additional live service experiences were added to Fortnite last week in the form of Lego Fortnite, Fortnite: Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival.
Built in partnership with The Lego Group, Lego Fortnite is a survival and crafting experience, not unlike Minecraft.
And Fortnite Festival, from Rock Band studio Harmonix, is a music game where players can perform in a band with friends or play solo with tracks from popular artists.
Addressing its long-term plans for the new modes on Monday, Epic said: “Howdy, friends 🤠 seeing some chatter around our newly launched games and people worried that they may not stick around. To clarify: these are brand new games entirely—not LTM’s.
“Fear not. Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival are here to stay – with regular updates.”
Lego Fortnite has been particularly popular since its release on December 7. It attracted over 2.1 concurrent players over the weekend, surpassing the number of players in the game’s popular Battle Royal mode.
