Fortnite x Lego Collab Could Feature Minecraft-Like World-Building
For months, avid Fortnite players have been attempting to scrape together all the information possible on the upcoming Fortnite x Lego collaboration, which is set to be one of the biggest crossovers in the history of the ever-popular battle royale game. From rumours concerning a monumental in-game event to physical building sets, everything is on the table as part of this collab.
Biggest Event Yet
Recently, a prominent Fortnite leaker took to social media to explain that the upcoming collaboration appears to boast a ‘random terrain generation system’ that kicks in when creating a new world, much like ‘world seeds’ in Minecraft. In the decade-old block-building game, players can use a randomised seeding system to generate a unique world every time they so desire – and that seed can be shared and other players will get the same build when they use said seed.
So, it stands to reason that the Fortnite x Lego collab could introduce a feature where, through the power of the UEFN, players can generate a Lego-based island that’s different every single time they build it. At the start of the year, it was revealed that a repository existed within the Unreal Engine that included a full ‘Brick Database’ for Lego.
In the latest leak, published to Twitter by Krowe_moh, it was suggested that the collab will allow users to seed their worlds, view other players’ worlds, and update them over time. It will reportedly also feature elements like an overworld, combat-level threats, unique music, and… Ship cannons?
For the most part, everyone is reading into this and turning straight to Lego Worlds, the 2015 title that falls very much into the description mentioned above.
