Epic Games has confirmed the release dates for the Lego Fortnite Open World map game mode along with the Rocket Racing mode.
Fortnite Chapter 4 concluded with the Big Bang live event which also saw the end of the OG map for at least a couple of months.
With Epic Games posting a record amount of players in November thanks to the Fortnite OG season, they announced on Twitter that the OG map would be returning in 2024.
There’s no official release date planned, but it’s unlikely to come in the first season of Fortnite. With rumors the second season of Chapter 5 will launch in March, that seems like a possible release date for the return of the OG map.
In the meantime, players have the new chapter of Fortnite to look forward to. With major additions including new movement, a new grappling item, item mods, and new game modes, Chapter 5 will likely be the most highly anticipated chapter in some time.
During the Big Bang live event, players got a glimpse at three of the new game modes that’ll be available in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1: Underground.
Lego Fortnite, an open-world map, will be available within a week of the new chapter launching along with the Rocket Racing game mode and Fortnite Festival.
Here are the release dates for each of the above game modes.
Fortnite Festival Release Date
Epic Games stated that the Fortnite Festival game mode will be released on December 9, 2023. We know from the image released with the announcement that The Weeknd will feature in the new game mode.
Thanks to the taste of the game mode we experienced in the live event, we know it’ll be Guitar Hero-esque.
Rocket Racing Fortnite Game Mode Release Date
We’ve known for a few months that Epic Games has been working on a racing game mode. We also knew it would be released at some stage during chapter 5.
However, after today’s live event, Epic confirmed that the Rocket Racing game mode will release in Fortnite on December 8th, 2023.

Lego Fortnite Open World Map Release Date
A few months ago, insiders at Epic Games leaked that Fortnite chapter 4 will end with a Lego-themed season. However, that clearly wasn’t the case with Fortnite OG release at the start of November.
However, a couple of weeks ago, reliable sources stated that there would be a Fortnite x Lego collaboration with the launch of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1: Underground.
During the live event, we got to see the Lego Fortnite open world map, and for me, it was the best part of the live event.
After the event, Epic Games retweeted the new Lego Fortnite Twitter account’s post that provided a teaser video for the release of the Lego Fortnite open-world map collaboration.
The Lego Fortnite open-world map has a release date of Thursday, December 7th, 2023.
