Epic Games has released the patch notes for Lego Fortnite version 28.10, detailing build changes and new features. 

Alongside updates to the main game, as well as new additions to Fortnite: Rocket Racing, Lego Fortnite has received a massive patch that sees improvements across the board, including improvements to building, stability, and performance, and even a new option to eat while moving around.

Other main highlights come in the form of a new Launch Pad toy, which can be placed on the ground to achieve a great height before deploying a glider, and according to Epic, placing it on a Dynamic Foundation will offer "extra fun."

Players will now find that placing a build will remove any foliage and rocks out of the way, and they can now be placed reliably on slopes without any problem. New Building Parts have also been added like new sizes and styles for floors and walls. 

In terms of villages, they can now instantly be removed with the “Delete Village” option in the Village Square, while Bushranger, Rustler, and Tomatohead can now appear as potential villagers. 

Brand new outfits have also been added to the game in their own Lego style. If players already own these skins in Fortnite, they'll now find the following outfits in their Locker:

  • Ahsoka Tano
  • Finn
  • Jack Skellington
  • Loki Laufeyson
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Spider-Man
  • Star-Lord Outfit
  • Thanos
  • Wolverine

Additionally, there are some outfits already with a Lego style that have received a higher detailed one with version 28.10. Players will have the option to choose between both original and updated styles starting in late February. These outfits include: 

  • Cosmic Infinity
  • Crusher
  • Ex
  • FFC Sparkplug
  • Khari
  • Love Ranger
  • Skully
  • Snowfoot 
  • Stoneheart
