Lego Fortnite Player Recreates Iconic Lord Of The Rings: The Two Tower Location

We make for the refuge of Helm's Deep.


There may not be thousands of Uruk-hai ready to knock down the walls, but a resourceful Lego Fortnite player has constructed a virtual Helm's Deep inside the game. The location serves as the setting for one of the most famous battle scenes in cinema history in the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

Dexerto posted a clip from Lego Fortnite on X (formerly known as Twitter) showcasing the refuge for the people of Rohan in the The Lord of the Rings universe. The person behind the digital recreation is Reddit user Crownedpepper, who's also built the Eye of Sauron inside the game. Crownedpepper stated that Helm's Deep was "made with mostly the castle building parts from the desert area village upgrade."

Lego Fortnite isn't even a month old at this point. The survival sandbox game arrived inside of Fortnite alongside Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival, a Rock Band successor, last month. These new additions helped Fortnite hit over 7.6 million concurrent players in December, with Lego Fortnite accounting for more than 2 million at that time.

All three new experiences are permanent parts of Fortnite and will receive updates, according to developer Epic. Apparently there was some worry from people they might be limited-time modes, which isn't the case.
