Fortnite Introduces Family-Friendly Lego Islands With 'Raft Survival' And 'Obby Fun'

Epic Games and Lego unveiled Lego Fortnite, a brick-based survival game with crafting, combat, and more, back in December. Now, the companies have unveiled a new way to experience Lego in Fortnite: Lego Islands. Available today, Lego Islands is a family-friendly, all-ages play experience that sits alongside (and separate) from Lego Fortnite, and it's kicking off with two islands. 

The first is Lego Raft Survival. Created in Unreal Editor for Fortnite, Raft Survival "combines frenetic multiplayer problem solving with the classic Lego Pirates theme, as the infamous Blackbeard challenges players and their friends to stay afloat on a raft in unfriendly waters," a press release reads. Players must survive on their raft against cannon balls shot from Blackbeard's Barracuda ship, all while collecting wood and treasures as resources and building more rafts.

The second island available starting today is Lego Obby Fun. Epic Games calls it the first official Lego-themed obstacle course in Fortnite, stating it "offers a Lego-inspired take on climbing and problem solving through brick-built platforms designed by actual Lego designers and packed with hot dogs, pizzas, unicorns, and much more."

Players are spawned randomly on a section of a course inspired by popular Lego themes, like Lego Friends, Lego City, Lego Ninjago, and Lego DreamZzz, and "the experience offers a different challenge each time to put their skills to the test, either solo or with friends."

Epic Games says the Lego Fortnite journey, which began with Chapter 5 of Fortnite alongside Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival, is just the beginning, with new world building, gameplay features, and Lego Style Outfits arriving in updates throughout the year. 

Both Lego Raft Survival and Lego Obby Fun are now live in Fortnite.
