There are close by Imperial camps primarily based across the wreckage of a crashed Star Destroyer, Lego lightsabers and different weapons to wield, and a number of Star Wars buildings to assemble, together with the Mos Eisley cantina.

It is a main addition for Lego Fortnite, and one which Epic Video games states repeatedly will stick round after this Friday’s upcoming replace comes and goes – not like different seasonal additions to Fortnite, which commonly depart its primary battle royale Island as the subsequent in-game disaster/model deal rears its head.

The one draw back appears to be that each one this takes place in a separate Lego Fortnite world to any you’ve got been constructing thus far. Consider it like a separate Lego Fortnite recreation, or a specificly modded mode, maybe.

All of this comes free, although there’s an occasion move that features a stack of Lego Fortnite builds in your world with a paid-for observe that features a Chewbacca pores and skin you can even use in Fortnite battle royale. It is priced at 1400 V-Bucks, which roughly equates to a couple of tenner, and is the primary such move for Lego Fortnite.
