With Lego Fortnite coming out, many gamers are excited. To celebrate the new game mode, Epic Games released a new skin, Explorer Emilie. You can obtain this skin for free, but it requires you to have a Lego account that you need to link to your Epic Games account.

Explorer Emilie is obtainable starting Thursday, December 7. However, if you’re unsure how to get the skin, our guide will show you how to link your Lego and Epic Games accounts. This process is very simple and straightforward, but requires you to log in to Fortnite’s website.

If you don’t have a Lego Insider account, you will have to create one before linking it to your Epic Games account. You can sign up for a free account on Lego’s website, and once you do it, you will be able to connect it to your Fortnite account.

To connect two accounts, you need to follow these steps:

  • Open in your web browser
  • Log in with your Epic Games account
  • Hover over your icon in the top right corner and click on Account
  • Select Apps and Accounts from the left-hand menu
  • Click on the Connect button under the Lego Account
  • Allow the connection between your Lego and Epic Games account

Alternatively, you can use this link to open the account linking page. Once you do so, you need to log in with your Epic Games account, and then simply connect your Lego account. After you allow the connection between these two accounts, you will be able to log in to Fortnite using your Lego account. On top of that, you will receive the free Fortnite skin.

If you haven’t got a Lego account already, clicking the link to connect your accounts will simply bring you to a page asking you to create an account. Go through the process to create the account, at the end of which you’ll be able to link the two, getting you the free skin in Fortnite.

How to link Lego account to Epic Games account – FAQ

Can I receive the Explorer Emilie Fortnite skin without linking Lego and Epic Games accounts?

No, you will have to link your Lego account to the Epic Games account to get Explorer Emilie. You can obtain the free Fortnite skin on multiple accounts as well.

I linked my accounts but haven’t received the free skin

If you linked your Lego and Epic Games accounts before December 7, 2023, you may not have the skin in your locker. It should be automatically granted with the release of the Lego Fortnite mode. However, if this is not the case, try unlinking accounts, and then linking them once again.
