Fortnite's Three New Games Are Not Modes And Are Here To Stay, Epic Confirms

"Fear not, Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival are here to stay--with regular updates."


Fortnite recently added three new games--Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival--and now developer Epic has clarified for anyone unaware that these are not limited-time modes.

These are full games that are not going away, Epic said. "Fear not, Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival are here to stay--with regular updates," Epic said. These games are displayed on the Fortnite home page as tiles next to Fortnite's numerous other modes, so it's understandable that some people might have thought they were in fact modes.

Now Playing: Fortnite’s Huge Update Almost Feels Like Fortnite 2

In another post, former Fortnite boss Donald Mustard shared an image of Epic's original plan for the game from six years ago. He said the original intent was to make Fortnite a "place" rather than a game, and now that vision has come to life, or at least the beginning stages of it.

"It was such a HUGE, audacious, vision. We knew it would take YEARS and SO much work on so many fronts," Mustard said.

Mustard said the plan "changed and evolved" many times, but the intent was for it to take six years. And that's just about how long it took. "Today you are playing the TRUE vision of the dream of Fortnite," Mustard said.

Fortnite is indeed changed from what it used to be when it was a battle royale game alone. Today, Fortnite has numerous non-battle royale modes like Creative, a user-generated content sandbox, and now it's growing bigger still with Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival.

The scale of Fortnite is staggering. This past weekend, the first since Fortnite's three new games launched, Fortnite reached more than 7.6 concurrent million players across all of its modes.

For more, be sure to read GameSpot's opinion piece from resident Fortnite expert Mark Delaney regarding how this newest evolution of Fortnite essentially makes it Fortnite 2, even if Epic won't call it that.
