Experience Metallica’s music like never before in Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury. This journey through six of Metallica’s fan-favorite songs features gameplay that matches the intensity. The Master of Puppets awaits…

Dominated by the anticipation? Made by Magnopus, “Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury.” will have six different showtimes across two days:

11 PM ET

SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 2024
10 AM ET

The experience will be in Fortnite’s Discover screen for thirty minutes each showtime, so even if you jump in later than the start, you can be part of the full show. Choose a time that works best with a party of up to four! Just catch one of the shows so you can finally sleep with both eyes closed.

We hear your fans screaming — content creators in the Support-A-Creator program can share their “Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury” experience with the world. See the Content Creation for Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury. part of this blog post to learn more!


James, Lars, Kirk, and Robert. These four are the Icons of Fortnite Festival Season 4! But they’re not just here to perform — they’re here to battle. Season 4 brings a new experience that’ll stick around after Season 4 ends: the PvP Battle Stage! 16 players enter, one will emerge victorious. (It’s a musical free-for-all!) Bring the heat to the Battle Stage, Jam Stage, or Main Stage to progress in the Season 4 Festival Pass!

The Festival Pass has a free reward track and Premium Reward Track upgrade. Both have in-game rewards to unlock as you keep rollin’ through the Pass, including the Premium Reward Track’s James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo Outfits! Just by purchasing the Premium Reward Track, you’ll unlock the Lars Ulrich Outfit. Fortnite Festival Season 4 goes live June 13 when v30.10 releases.

Roam outside Fortnite Festival? Adapt to the unknown in LEGO® experiences with James, Lars, Kirk, and Robert’s LEGO Styles!

When you’re back in the spotlight, complete Fortnite Festival’s Metallica Quests in a pursuit to unlock James’s ESP Snakebyte Guitar and Robert’s Warwick M72 Bass. These sequential Quests will be available until July 21, 2024 at 4 AM ET.


Be a flash before enemies’ eyes — Ride the Lightning guitars will be on the Battle Royale Island! These instruments are as mobile as they are musical… Use one to create a lightning arc in the sky that your squadmates can ride. On your descent, come crashing down to bring the beginning of an enemy’s end. Get this guitar from the ground or Chests!

Ride the Lightning isn’t the only way to go sky-high. In the middle of every match, the floating Metallica Loot Island will rift from a hole in the sky. It’s no dream or lie — atop this island is a stage inspired by the M72 World Tour! Rock out to the holographic James, Lars, Kirk, and Robert to capture the POI and let loot loose (including Ride the Lightning).

Oh yeah, you can also earn an Emote and Loading Screen from Battle Royale’s Metallica Quests! These sequentially available Quests, plus the other marks of Metallica, will be in BR ‘til July 2, 2024, at 9 AM ET.


Ride the lightning all the way to victory. The Squads Fill, Battle Royale Metallica Cup happens June 18 and gives players the opportunity to earn the foreboding Ringer Emote before it resounds in the Shop! Earn this Emote by being one of the top point-earning players in your region.

(Note: Once a player participates in a region in any competitive event during Battle Royale Chapter 5 Season 3, they will be locked to that region for any subsequent sessions of that event, as well as all sessions for future events in the Season.)

You’ve got the fuel, the fire, but it’s still not hot enough. Turn up the temperature on Rocket Racing’s new Thrash Mountain track! This volcanic track is a tribute to all things rock — and not just the geology kind. You’ve got instrumental monuments, a stretch of road like a fretboard, and Metallica’s “Fuel” playing in the background.

This is a pretty hardcore track, but that doesn’t mean it’s hard. This is a Novice track you can unlock in ranked racing at Bronze I!

Return to the fire — the Backfire Car Body is one of the rewards for Rocket Racing’s Metallica Quests. So are the Puppetmaster Backfire Decal and Chasing Light Wheels! Shred the path all the way to the finish line.

The Thrash Mountain track and sequential Metallica Quests will be in Rocket Racing ‘til August 16, 2024, at 9 AM ET. Turbo fiends, drift everywhere you can on Thrash Mountain!


We’re not fading to black just yet! Metallica will also send thunderwaves across the Shop:


There’s a fire inside that can’t be quenched. Starting with v30.10 on June 13, the Puppet Master Outfits for Lars, James, Kirk, and Robert will be in the Shop! Get these Outfits in the Shop up until August 16, 2024.

  • Puppet Master James
  • Puppet Master Lars
  • Puppet Master Kirk
  • Puppet Master Robert

These Outfits give each member an otherworldly wardrobe — including flame-emitting eyes and a blazing skull breastplate. Fitting for masters of miniature figures, each Outfit has a LEGO Style:


You can unlock the “One” Jam Track in the Festival Pass’ Premium Reward Track, but if one’s not enough, you can also get these Metallica tracks from the Shop:

  • Metallica – “Enter Sandman”
  • Metallica – “Fuel”
  • Metallica – “Master of Puppets”
  • Metallica – “Ride the Lightning”
  • Metallica – “The Unforgiven”
  • Metallica – “Wherever I May Roam”

There’ll be more Metallica Jam Tracks over the weeks too. They’ll be in the Shop ‘til August 16, 2024!


Get your road crew together because the Metallica Jäger 619 Bundle will be in the Shop until June 26, 2024:

  • Jäger 619 Car Body (has 13 paint colors)
  • Circuit Pro Jäger 619 Decal

  • Kraken Jäger 619 Decal
  • Storm Warning Jäger 619 Decal

This applies to all Car Bodies starting in v30.10. If any Decal for a Car Body you own enters the Shop, you’ll receive that Decal automatically if you don’t already have it.

LEGO® Fortnite fans,

Maybe you like combat, but want it to be a little easier so you can build, farm, AND feel mighty. That’s where the new Cozy mode comes in!

Perhaps for you, Survival mode was just the start. Do you have what it takes to face fiercer foes? Think you can up your game against regular enemies? And above all, are you willing to take on these challenges with the risk of permanent elimination? Test just how unbreakable you are in LEGO Fortnite’s new Expert mode!

Play Cozy and Expert when v30.10 arrives June 13.


Whether you’re a beginner survivor or a builder who likes a little bit of thrill, Cozy mode’s up your alley! Create a world and get greeted by Slumber, a friendly face who’ll guide you through your journey step-by-step.


Cozy mode is a nice mix of Survival and Sandbox mode. If that sounds like your thing, choose Cozy mode when creating a new world! These are the default settings if you choose Cozy mode. (They can all be changed!)

  • Enemies – On
  • Enemy Difficulty (new setting!) – Easy
  • Storm-Wild Enemies (new setting!) – Off
  • Hunger – Off
  • Temperature – Off
  • Stamina – Off
  • Player Elimination – Respawn
  • Drop Inventory Upon Elimination – Off
  • Friendly Creatures – On
  • Friendly Damage – Off
  • Villagers – On
  • Power System – Off
  • Village Animals Removed On Elimination – Off



‘Fraid of Wild Wolves? Well now there are even wilder wolves.

In Expert mode, creatures infected by a “storm” roam with creatures who haven’t been infected. (Where did this storm come from…) These Storm-Wild enemies deal more damage, have more Health, and move faster than regular enemies. If you’re not prepared to face them, running away won’t be easy…

All Storm-Wild enemies:

  • Storm-Wild Blaster
  • Storm-Wild Bone Wolf
  • Storm-Wild Brute
  • Storm-Wild Frost Brute
  • Storm-Wild Frost Roller
  • Storm-Wild Frost Scorpion
  • Storm-Wild Frost Wolf
  • Storm-Wild Hermit Crab
  • Storm-Wild Sand Brute
  • Storm-Wild Sand Roller
  • Storm-Wild Sand Scorpion
  • Storm-Wild Sand Spider
  • Storm-Wild Sand Wolf
  • Storm-Wild Scorpion
  • Storm-Wild Skeleton
  • Storm-Wild Scoundrels
  • Storm-Wild Spider
  • Storm-Wild Stone Roller
  • Storm-Wild Wild Wolf


Regular enemies will be stronger in Expert mode than in other modes, even if they aren’t Storm-Wild! Better get those Recurve Crossbows and Longswords ready.


So you’re still not scared? That’s good…

We should warn you: losing all your hearts in a world where Expert mode is on will make you permanently eliminated from that world. Got involved in a bad situation? If you have a Totem of Return equipped when you lose all your hearts, you’ll revive in your bed with your backpack. The totem will destroy itself though — a small cost for escaping permanent elimination!

The Totem of the Immortal will also be in Expert mode. Got eliminated with no totem in tow? On the bright side, you won’t be eliminated from all of LEGO Fortnite… you can still hop into non-Expert worlds or make a new Expert world! So what happens to the old one? Key holders will still have a shot at survival unless you delete it.


Mark your survival skills with trophies in your world!

Here are the symbols of courage you can earn in Expert mode:

  • Grasslands Trophy: Unlock by defeating a Storm-Wild Brute in the Grasslands, then interacting with a Level 10 Grasslands Village.
  • Dry Valley Trophy: Unlock by defeating a Storm-Wild Sand Brute, then interacting with a Level 10 Dry Valley Village.
  • Frostlands Trophy: Unlock by defeating a Storm-Wild Frost Brute, then interacting with a Level 10 Frostlands Village.

If you earn these trophies, you’ve truly earned them 🏆


Choose Expert mode when creating a new world! When creating a world, these are the default settings if you select Expert:

  • Enemies – On (cannot be changed!)
  • Enemy Difficulty (new setting!) – Hard (cannot be changed!)
  • Storm-Wild Enemies (new setting!) – On (cannot be changed!)
  • Hunger – On (cannot be changed!)
  • Temperature – On (cannot be changed!)
  • Stamina – On (cannot be changed!)
  • Player Elimination – Permanent (cannot be changed!)
  • Drop Inventory Upon Elimination – On (cannot be changed!)
  • Friendly Creatures – On (cannot be changed… we’re throwing you a bone)
  • Friendly Damage – Off (this can be changed if you wanna go the extra mile)
  • Villagers – On (cannot be changed… you’ll need these buddies to help you out!)
  • Power System – On (cannot be changed… you’ll have to put in the work!)
  • Village Animals Removed On Elimination – On (cannot be changed… keep ‘em safe!)



Before v30.10, you may have seen a “high complexity” warning in your world, limiting your ability to build. v30.10 will clarify whether this is because of low memory or too many constructs nearby.

If you get a low memory or too many constructs nearby notification, here’s how you can try continuing normal play:

  • Low Memory: Try reducing overall constructs, the number of unique constructs, or items and creatures. Moving away from dense areas or exiting and re-entering the world can help too. (Note: the amount of memory available depends on the platform you’re playing on.)
  • Too Many Constructs Nearby: Try spreading out constructs over larger areas. Also try using larger Building Parts rather than many smaller ones to achieve a similar result. Building in a different location or removing constructs you no longer want can also help.


  • Villagers in the Rebel Village will no longer count towards the world Villager cap.
  • The world Villager count in the Village Hub will display the correct number of Villagers.
  • Skeletons will be less likely to spawn in Villages.
  • Lava Caves on Star Wars Island will have Rubies!
  • Animals will do a better job avoiding Campfires.
  • Wolves learned how to swim!


Speaking of difficulty, choosing your perfect LEGO look for every occasion isn’t always easy. That’s why v30.10 adds even more LEGO Styles for your favorite Outfits! If you already own these Outfits, the LEGO Styles will automatically be in your Locker:
