KEEP AN EAR TO THE FESTIVAL PASS TAB

Season 3’s a lost cause if you’re not at the right venue. When you enter the Lobby of a Fortnite Festival experience (“Main Stage” or “Jam Stage”), head to Festival Pass in the top navigation. Here you’ll find the Season 3 Festival Pass and a button to view Festival Quests!

ROCK OUT WITH GUITAR CONTROLLERS!

You can now use your Rock Band 4 guitar controllers to go all out on new Pro Lead and Pro Bass song parts on the Main Stage on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC! Check out the table below to see whether your controller is supported with the launch of Season 3

IMPROVEMENTS AND FIXES

PRO LEAD AND PRO BASS

  • Added two new song parts: Pro Lead and Pro Bass! All current and future Jam Tracks now have these two playable song parts, accessible on the Main Stage with a guitar controller.
    • Pro Lead and Pro Bass have hammer-on and pull-off notes. When you have a streak going, you can hit these notes without strumming!
    • Pro Lead and Pro Bass have colored notes for each lane, corresponding with the guitar controller’s buttons.
    • Leaderboards now have new listings to support Pro Lead and Pro Bass scores. Climb to the top!
  • To support the release of Pro Lead and Pro Bass, we’ve updated the Overdrive color for all song parts from bright orange to silver-white. How you gather and activate Overdrive hasn’t changed, but we felt with the added note colors that Overdrive needed to appear more distinct.
  • For now, the whammy bar only provides a visual effect. There is no audio distortion or extra Overdrive energy when whammying.
  • We’re continuing to improve the feel of playing with a guitar controller and want your feedback! For rhythm-rocking veterans, there may be situations where you miss a note you’d expected to hit, or where a familiar Jam Track feels different. Let us know your thoughts as you don the axe in Fortnite Festival. We’re excited to see you shred!

TUNING UP

  • The Music Library now shows an expanded set of stats, showing your selected Instrument type’s best performance in each Jam Track row.
  • The Music Library is now also ordered with new and featured Jam Tracks at the top by default (this can be re-sorted), allowing players with large libraries to easily access Quest-relevant Jam Tracks.
  • New Wristband Quests and rewards have been added.
  • Season 2 leaderboard scores have been recorded and archived. The leaderboards await your new top performances with Season 3!
  • For more convenient song selection, you’ll be closer to the organ when you arrive Backstage. No more sprinting to make your setlist!
  • There are more stats on the Results screen after each performance. You can now see the percentage of notes hit and missed and the average from your other performances to see how you’ve improved.
  • We’ve reordered the song parts selection menu to Vocals > Bass > Lead > Drums.
  • We fixed a bug that was granting a “Double Overdrive” meter during certain note sections.
  • Made various other fixes and improvements.

LEGO FORTNITE V29.30: FARM FRIENDS!

The Fortnite Team

LEGO® Fortnite seems ripe for another major update. Nay, a content harvest! Turn animals into friends and populate your Villages’ acres in v29.30 (a.k.a. the Farm Friends update), which brings animal recruitment and major Village improvements to your world’s pleasant pastures.

Get those Shovels ready because you’re gonna dig this one. Farm Friends launches April 23!

THE ANIMALS ARE READY TO MOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE IN

It’s never lonely at the farm! The Farm Friends update increases the Village recruitment cap to ten per Village. Three Village slots are available to Villagers, three slots are available to animals, and four slots are available to Villagers OR animals.

Animals you can recruit to your Village include cows, sheep, chickens, and a new animal arriving with this update: pigs!

HOW TO TAME AND RECRUIT ANIMALS

1. Build an Animal House

You’ll need to gain the trust of wild animals before you can lead them back to your Village. But before they’re ready to follow you, you’re gonna need to build them a new home: an Animal House.

The Animal House is a new Station, made for feeding your animals and farming resources. You’ll unlock the Animal House recipe once your Village reaches Level 2!

2. A Friend with Feed is a Friend Indeed

The way to an animal’s heart is through its stomach. Build the trust of wild animals by petting them, then gain their friendship by giving them an Animal Treat! Unlock the recipe for Animal Treats by building an Animal Hou

3. Be the Shepherd

If the animal accepts your delicious treat, you’ve got a limited amount of time to get them back to your Village. Make sure their journey back is a peaceful one — any unpleasant encounters could upset them so much that they give you the hoof!

Get creative with how you lead an animal back to your Village. Lure them into a vehicle for a quick journey, use a Fishing Rod to pull them across tight spots, or cross barriers by building bridges! If the animal gets hurt on the journey, make sure to heal them by giving them another Animal Treat.

4. Assign Animals to Animal Houses and Keep Them Happy!

When you’ve braved the journey back, it’s time to put a roof over your new companion’s head! Interact with an Animal House to assign your animal its new home, and to name it from a selection of names. (Only one animal can be assigned per Animal House.)

Once they’re settled in, it’s your job to ensure they enjoy life on the farm. Keep your animals happy by feeding them, petting them, or having a boogie next to them! You can also build objects for them to interact with.

If your animals feel ignored, they won’t stick around for long. We recommend assigning a Villager to take good care of them when you’re not around!

RESOURCES GALORE

We reap what we sow. Take good care of your animals and you’ll be rewarded with new resources to help you out:

  • Chickens produce Feathers and Fertilizer over time.
  • Cows produce Milk and Fertilizer over time.
  • Sheep produce Wool and Fertilizer over time.
  • Pigs produce Mushrooms and Fertilizer over time.

NEW VILLAGERS

Five new Villagers are ready to lend a helping hand and separate the wheat from the chaff! Cadence is a master woodworker, Ash is wild about plants, and Brooks is all about channeling nature’s beat!

As for the bright and cheerful engineer Lana Llane, she can’t wait to settle in a Village and find some new projects to work on. And then there’s Guernsey. Guernsey is… one of a kind.

BEWARE THE BEAR!

Farm Friends is all about making new friends, whether they’re animals or Villagers. That said, not all of the animals like to play nice…

Bear = bad. Don’t let Bears follow you back to your Village because you’ll never hear the end of it. Thankfully, they’re quite sleepy and can be easily avoided… as long as you’re quiet.

NEW ANIMAL VARIANTS

Farming has never looked so fantastic. Farm Friends adds new variants for animals:

  • Brown and tan chickens spawn in the Dry Valley.
  • Yellow chickens spawn in the Grasslands.
  • Cows now have different spot patterns and colors.

Try to find every variant of animal in the wild!

ANARCHY ACRES BUNDLE

Organized chaos, organically farmed. The Anarchy Acres Bundle is available from the Shop for 800 V-Bucks and includes:

  • Fully Furnished Farm – LEGO Kit with 3 Builds, the Homestead Interiors Decor Bundle, and Rural Hospitality Decor Bundle (This Kit is 600 V-Bucks individually.)
  • Farmer’s Favorites – LEGO Decor Bundle with 9 Decor items (This Bundle is 400 V-Bucks individually.)

MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS, ADJUSTMENTS, AND BUG FIXES

VILLAGE SQUARE IMPROVEMENTS

The Village Square UI has been revamped to help you keep a close eye on your Villages:

  • Monitor who lives in your Village, the backstories of your Villagers, and the happiness of your animals. You can also view the jobs of Villagers and even ask them to leave.
  • You can see who’s visiting your Village, which jobs are assigned, the biome you’re in, and your Village’s upgrade requirements. You can also edit your Village banner and rename your Village from a selection of names.

(Another Village improvement: you can now choose from a selection of names when first setting up your Village.)

GRAZE UPON THESE BUG FIXES

  • Fixed an issue where stamina would sometimes become enabled in worlds where stamina was turned off.
  • Fixed an issue where saplings couldn’t be destroyed if they were growing near other objects.
  • Fixed an issue where swords would sometimes stop doing damage.
  • Fixed an issue where the first attack from swords would sometimes miss.
  • Fixed an issue that caused some Pickaxes to stop doing damage to certain objects.
  • Villagers no longer pester players when players are regenerating Health.
  • Starting a sneak while sprinting no longer makes players stuck in sprinting.
