Fortnite developer Epic Games and Lego team up to build a metaverse for kids

Epic Games, Fortnite’s developer, and Lego are partnering to make a metaverse for children. According to the official announcement: “The family-friendly digital environment will allow kids to access tools that will empower and provide amazing play opportunities in an empowering and positive space.”

When it comes to creating a virtual world that offers safe and engaging play, the two companies decided to concentrate on three principles. These are the three principle:

  • Make safety and well-being a top priority to protect children’s rights to play.
  • Protect children’s privacy and put their best interests before yours.
  • Give children and adults the tools they need to control their digital experiences.

According to The LEGO Group CEO, children enjoy both the digital and real worlds. They can seamlessly move between them. There is a huge opportunity for children to learn lifelong skills like collaboration, creativity and communication via digital experiences. We have the responsibility of making them enjoyable, safe and useful for everyone. We are committed to protecting digital play’s safety and security for children, just as we have protected physical play rights for many generations. Epic Games is an exciting partner that we look forward to working together to create a fun and joyful future.

Epic Games’ latest Fortnite season has removed some of the best-known building elements from the popular game. Although it was only temporary, Epic Games in Fortnite has made the change official by introducing Zero Build mode. Fortnite’s new combat mode allows players to build defense structures and collect resources.
