LEGO Fortnite is a relatively new gameplay experience that launched in December 2023. As part of a partnership between Epic Games and The LEGO Group, players can dive into all sorts of LEGO-inspired in-game activities.

Just last month, LEGO Fortnite expanded with two new experiences: LEGO Raft Survival and LEGO Obby Fun. While Epic has already confirmed more in-game LEGO experiences are coming in the future, many are wondering if this collaboration means we'll also see the release of physical LEGO Fortnite sets as well.

So far, nothing official has been announced. However, there are reports that The LEGO Group will be releasing physical LEGO Fortnite sets later this year. According to these reports, five LEGO Fortnite sets are coming in October 2024.

Two of these sets have been leaked. The first is LEGO Loot Llama ($39.99), a 691-piece set that features a buildable version of the iconic Fortnite loot llama.

The other leaked set is Peely Bone ($59.99), a buildable model of the beloved Fortnite character.

There are two more other LEGO Fortnite sets supposedly coming in October, but they have not been leaked. We know one is 954 pieces and will come with 10 minifigures. The other is a mystery.

The fifth and final LEGO Fortnite set is a "Gift with Purchase." This will be 151 pieces and included as a gift.

All five of these sets have been rumored for release on October 1, 2024.

LEGO Gaming is a popular series of brick sets from LEGO. We've seen numerous video games come to life in brick form, including Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Minecraft and 2K Drive. There are also rumors of a LEGO set based on Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda.

LEGO Fortnite might prove to be the most popular of all though. Fortnite is one of the biggest games in the world, even more than six years after its initial release. It has evolved into something much bigger than a battle royale shooter since it first launched in early access in 2017.
