Epic says Fortnite Racing and Festival modes ‘are here to stay’

Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite’s trio of new game modes are permanent additions to the free-to-play title.

Three additional live service experiences were added to Fortnite last week in the form of Lego Fortnite, Fortnite: Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival.

Built in partnership with The Lego Group, Lego Fortnite is a survival and crafting experience, not unlike Minecraft.

Developed by Rocket League studio Psyonix, Rocket Racing is billed as “a supersonic arcade racer where players drift, fly, and boost with friends through an ever-growing selection of tracks”.

And Fortnite Festival, from Rock Band studio Harmonix, is a music game where players can perform in a band with friends or play solo with tracks from popular artists.

Addressing its long-term plans for the new modes on Monday, Epic said: “Howdy, friends 🤠 seeing some chatter around our newly launched games and people worried that they may not stick around. To clarify: these are brand new games entirely—not LTM’s.

“Fear not. Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival are here to stay – with regular updates.”

Lego Fortnite has been particularly popular since its release on December 7. It attracted over 2.1 concurrent players over the weekend, surpassing the number of players in the game’s popular Battle Royal mode.

Epic recently said this week’s free Epic Games Store title will be a “mystery” game. It will replace GigaBash and Predecessor, which are currently free to claim.
