Fortnite sickos around the world will be able to enter a whole new world of IP assimilation soon. Starting on December 7, 2023 (tomorrow, as of this writing!), an expansive new mode will launch in the form of LEGO Fortnite.

Based on a trailer released earlier today, it seems like in this mode, the entire world of Fortnite as players know it will be reformed into the official LEGO video game style. So when exactly will LEGO Fortnite be available to play? Here’s what we know.

If you take a look at the official LEGO Fortnite website, the FAQ doesn’t exactly have detailed answers for, well, anything. It’s kind of hilarious how the thing has like ten drop-downs for each question, each addressed with a different variation of “find out on December 7!”

That’s some bold corporate messaging. Anyway, if we take a look at social media, it seems like the in-game shop isn’t updating at the usual time, which could indicate when the LEGO lever is planned to be thrown.

If this is the logic we’re using, we can probably expect LEGO Fortnite to go live when the shop updates at 7 a.m. ET/4 a.m. PT on December 7. So, by the time you’ll be up for the day assuming you have a regular, human sleep schedule in North America.

As we’ve covered before, LEGO skin variants have already started showing up in peoples’ collections in Fortnite. But when the shop updates you’ll be able to see even more LEGO-flavored content, so get some skins ready if you’re into that kind of thing (or as a great holiday present for your Fortnite-obsessed relative).

If you have any other questions about LEGO Fortnite, such as what is actually happening in this mode or how many of your skins you can expect to be converted, you’re out of luck! As the official FAQ states several times, you’ll just have to find out alongside everyone else when LEGO Fortnite launches tomorrow.

LEGO Fortnite is of course one piece of the ongoing Big Bang event in Fortnite, which comprises other strange, new content such as a collaboration with rapper Eminem and another new mode, the Psyonix-developed Rocket Racing.
