The recently introduced Lego Fortnite has done what Fortnite was unable to do for some time. Following LEGO Fortnite’s December 7, 2023, release, the game mode saw an incredible rise in player count, with numbers peaking at about 2.5 million players. This new survival crafting mode has generated a ton of new interest in the game and, as such, has become the subject of a plethora of questions. Chief among them pertains to the mode’s offline playability.
For the uninitiated, LEGO Fortnite is one of the many modes available in Fortnite. Unlike other modes in the game, this one is a survival crafting one, akin to titles like Valheim. Players will get to play as a Fortnite character in LEGO style and do things like build bases, gear up, collect food, and whatnot. Suffice it to say, the mode is absolutely fun with friends, but many may want to play it in offline mode too. So, if you are wondering whether Lego Fortnite supports offline play, continue reading until the end.
Can you play Lego Fortnite Offline without any internet connection?
Unfortunately, you can’t play Lego Fortnite without an internet connection. You need to be connected to the internet if you want to play this mode. And that’s a massive bummer for many, but it is what it is. There’s really no going around this. As we stated earlier, Lego Fortnite is a mode in Fortnite and, as such, can only be accessed when you are online. If you disconnect your internet and then try to play it, all you will get in return is a Connection error.
Offline playability in the future?
While Epic themselves haven’t given any indication of this, we are of the belief that such a thing is not on the priority list at all. Even more, we think that Epic doesn’t even want to make Lego Fortnite playable offline. As you might or might not know, every single mode is served through the Fortnite client. It’s just not possible for Epic to offer offline support for Lego Fortnite when looking at the feasibility of developing something like this.
Along with Meta, Epic too has been pushing hard for a Metaverse. And this Lego Fortnite is their first major success when it comes to that. In fact, it can be said that Epic has been doing what Meta itself has failed to do. You can also read Epic Games and The LEGO Group’s announcement regarding their partnership to create “…a place for kids to play in the Metaverse.”, by clicking on this link here.
All in all, for now, you can only enjoy Lego Fortnite if you are online. If Epic does decide to offer offline support for this particular mode sometime in the future, we will be sure to let you know. But until then, you will need to play the mode as it is.
