As part of Fortnite’s The Big Bang event, Epic Games has announced three new live-service games that will be available for users within Fortnite.
- Fallout TV Series’ First Trailer Gives an Explosive Look at The Wasteland
- Xbox Game Pass is Not Coming to PlayStation and Nintendo, Says Phil Spencer
- GTA 6 Officially Announced With First Trailer, Skips PC Release
The first game that was shown during The Big Bang event was LEGO Fortnite, a survival crafting game “where the magic of LEGO building and Fortnite collide” and which is “designed for people of all ages to enjoy together, the game will encourage creativity, experimentation and collaboration through play”. LEGO Fortnite will be available on December 7, 2023, with an E10+ rating.
The second game is Rocket Racing, developed by Rocket League developers Psyonix. This new game will allow players to “drift, fly, and boost with friends through an ever-growing selection of tracks” and will be available on December 8, 2023, with an E rating.
Finally, Epic Games has put Rock Band developers Harmonix on Fortnite Festival duty, where players “can play in a band with friends or perform solo on stage with hit music by their favourite artists.” Fortnite Festival will be available on December 9, 2023, with a Teen rating and will kick off with The Weekend as the game’s first Music Icon.
The Big Bang event started off with a meteor striking the map and colliding with The Zero Point, which opened up a tear in space and time and took players through multiple realities and dimensions. It featured a performance from rap God Eminem, introducing the new games that will be debuting this month.
The festivities are leading up to Fortnite Chapter 5: Underground, which, among other things, will also introduce Peter Griffin and Solid Snake skins, a new island, weapon mods, a new train that will ride across the map, and more.
