LEGO Fortnite’s V28.10 patch is here for Chapter 5 Season 1, where it has added Launch Pads as a new Building Part to the game, new Villagers, and made building easier. Here’s all the details.

LEGO Fortnite has been well underway since it was released on December 7, 2023, following the launch of Chapter 5.

It instantly shattered the peak player count for Fortnite, as player numbers have held strong due to millions loving the groundbreaking LEGO game mode. However, with the survival and building game still in its early stages, players have called for Epic Games to give them further updates.

Now, Epic Games has released a LEGO Fortnite V28.10 update, which has seen Launch Pads being added, new Villagers, LEGO skin styles, and a whole heap of building and gameplay changes.

Launch Pads

Launch Pads have now been added as a brand-new Building Part for the game. It can be found in the Toys section of the building menu, where just like the main Battle Royale mode, you can jump on it to blast yourself into the sky and deploy your Glider.
