Fortnite is a game that succeeds worldwide, played by millions of people of all ages. Given this context, Epic Games‘ title is the perfect platform for various brands to advertise or promote their products in some way. This mutually beneficial relationship not only benefits the brands but also Fortnite and its players, who receive new content regularly.
In recent months, Epic Games has partnered with different brands and companies to bring WWE fighters, Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars, and characters from spooky works like Alan Wake, the protagonist of the game series of the same name which recently released its sequel last month; Jack Skellington (‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’) and Michael Myers (‘Halloween’).
Obviously, these collaborations continue and will continue for a long time, and this past weekend, the next two have been announced, which will involve some heavyweights. Who will they be? None other than LEGO and Fall Guys.
“Fortnite is working on bringing ‘Beans‘ from Fall Guys to a minigame,” announced HYPEX, a popular industry data leaker, on their Twitter account. “They are also working on a LEGO mode where you play as LEGO characters and build shareable worlds that include enemies, villages, combat, LEGO flames, ship cannons, music, and more.”
As of now, this is the only information available. However, given Epic Games’ track record, it’s likely they won’t take long to officially announce these collaborations with great fanfare. While the source of the leak seems reliable, nothing is confirmed yet, so only time will tell if it’s true or not.
