Over the last week, Epic Games really has been treating Fortnite fans – adding three incredible new game modes to the popular battle royale shooter. Although, saying that, these three new game modes – namely LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival – aren’t actually new game modes at all; they’re entirely new games in their own right. Continuing to transform Fortnite into a one-stop shop for all your gaming needs, Epic Games is reiterating that all three of these new experiences are “here to stay” alongside the Battle Royale and Zero Build.
If you thought Epic Games’ Fortnite was just one of the best battle royale games available at the moment, then think again – it’s now so much more than that. Through LEGO Fortnite, it’s doing a fantastic job at being one of the best survival games available on PS5 and Xbox at the moment. And, while Rocket Racing isn’t quite one of the best racing games out there just yet, Epic Games has done a fantastic job of delivering a fast and furious arcade racer for Fortnite players to enjoy. Similarly, Fortnite Festival draws on developer Harmonix’s work with both the Rock Band and Guitar Hero brands to deliver an excellent music game and an experience that could quickly become one of the best co-op games available if Epic Games’ regular content updates continue.
And, thankfully, that’s exactly what is going to happen – well, if plans stay the same, anyway. Amidst concerns that all three of these new experiences available within Fortnite are going to be available for a limited-time, Epic Games is confidently stating that “these are brand new games entirely – not LTMs”.
So, as you can see below, “LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival are here to stay – with regular updates” on the way.
With LEGO Fortnite and Rocket Racing already helping Fortnite smash PS5 and Xbox records, we can certainly see why Epic Games would want to make it absolutely clear to players that they can continue to invest time – and, importantly, money – into these experiences without risk that they will be made unavailable in a handful of weeks.
When you think about the fact that Fortnite’s extensive creation tools are going to be available to use within these three new experiences (eventually, anyway), we could see some truly fantastic user-created content continue to prop up LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival even further.
In particular, with Rocket Racing already revamping the Rocket League formula with an experience similar to Mario Kart or Disney Speedstorm, there’s a lot of potential for user-created tracks and courses in this mode. We also wouldn’t be surprised to see fan-made stages in Fortnite Festival and some user-created build blueprints in LEGO Fortnite – they’re an easy way to throw together structures using this mode’s surprisingly detailed building system.
If you’re excited to check out these fresh experiences the next time you boot up Fortnite, you can check out the current Fortnite Festival song list right here – something we’re certain Epic Games is already planning to expand upon in the coming weeks. Oh, and Fortnite Festival is set to get Guitar Hero style controller support in the future – which is definitely far from a bad thing.
Those of you hoping to install Fortnite after the arrival of LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival, though, will want to check out the best Xbox expansion cards and best PS5 SSD options. Fortnite is only growing bigger when it comes to storage space and we don’t think that is going to change as these modes continue to evolve alongside the core battle royale.
