Is LEGO Fortnite Better than Minecraft?
Neither game is better than the other, and it is a matter of personal preference. If you grew up playing Minecraft then you would like it over LEGO Fortnite. However, if you spend more time playing with LEGO toys there is a good chance you will love LEGO Fortnite. The only way you can find which one is better for you is after you try out both games.
Since both of them have their own perks which makes each stand out in their respective areas. So rather than focusing on the similarities like survival, creative/sandbox worlds, the animals, crafting, and more. Let us see some differences between them.
- Beginner Friendly
- Support For Mods
- Easier To Play with Friends
- Offline Play
- Future Content & Updates
When it comes to price LEGO Fortnite is easier to try than Minecraft, simply due to the fact that it is a free-to-play game. Minecraft on the other hand needs to be purchased, you can buy it for $29.99.
Although things aren’t as simple, when it comes to system requirements, older systems can easily handle Minecraft. Even though you don’t need the latest CPU or GPU for LEGO Fortnite, you still need a slightly advanced PC, especially when it comes to storage space. As, you basically are playing LEGO Fortnite from Fortnite.
While Minecraft isn’t exactly very difficult, LEGO Fortnite is simply easier when it comes to building things. You can access it all in the build menu. Open it and find the different objects that you need to build under the different sections that is Buildings, Machines, Furniture, etc.
This is no surprise but when it comes to the things you can make, Minecraft definitely has a lot more to offer than LEGO Fortnite. This is also thanks to the fact that the game has now been around for more than a decade. But it will be interesting to see what all LEGO Fortnite has to offer as the game gets new updates.
Speaking of updates and being around longer, another area where Minecraft has a lot to give over LEGO Fortnite is Biomes. With LEGO Fortnite you get Grasslands, Dry Valley, Frostlands, Shores, and Caves. Minecraft on the other hand, lets you play underwater in the Oceans, in the Nether, while also supporting your usual regions like Plains, Cherry Grove, Swamps, Savannahs, and more.
Support For Mods
Minecraft has a ton of mods that you can use. These vary from additional fan-made content to some simple texture packs. Using them can completely change the look and feel of your game. When it comes to LEGO Fortnite though, currently you cannot change things much as it doesn’t support mods.
Easier To Play with Friends
There is no denying LEGO Fortnite is easier to play with friends. You just have to add them to your party. The best part is you can even share world keys with them so that if you are building something together, they can still continue even if you are offline.
Minecraft is a bit advanced and lets you even host your own server. While that unlocks the ability for more features, casual players may have a bit of a hard time with it, especially when playing the first time.
This is one area where Minecraft is the clear winner. Since LEGO Fortnite is tied to Fortnite, if its servers are down so is the game. That isn’t the case with Minecraft, you don’t have to constantly be online to play it.
Although Fortnite should be able change that via some updates making it so that the game can also be played without having the need of a constant internet connection.
Future Content & Updates
LEGO Fortnite might be a winner in this because when it comes to major updates Minecraft takes its time with them. However, Fortnite seems to be more active in that department. Whether or not LEGO Fortnite gets the same treatment is a different issue. But since we saw nerfs and buffs regarding the spawn of spiders, or the durability of rare and epic weapons. The future of content updates looks promising for LEGO Fortnite.
As for things like which game has better graphics, combat, etc. those are again subjective. Since Minecraft and LEGO Fortnite have completely different visual styles we cannot objectively say one is better than the other.
