LEGO Fortnite just received a major update, with the sandbox builder now reaching version number 28.30. The latest update has been dubbed the Gone Fishing update – with many of its changes based around the new and expanded fishing mechanic.

Considering that LEGO Fortnite is a permanent game mode, we expect Epic to keep adding new content at least once a month. If you’re looking for all the changes with the latest update, however, we’ve prepared patch notes for you.

What did the LEGO Fortnite update add today?

While Fortnite Festival welcomes Lady Gaga for its second season, and Rocket Racing got a brand new Speed Run game mode as per the full Fortnite patch notes, Lego Fortnite’s changes include the introduction of the fishing rod, a long requested addition by the community.

You can craft this new item at a workbench, and of course it comes in four flavours of rarity, with each one making it more likely to land a successful catch. Rods would be pretty useless without something to catch of course, so the update also adds some new aquatic life.

Aside from catching them, the new update also adds a new Food Processor work station, and you can use that to start making a bait bucket to help you nab even more fish. There’s also two new resources – sand and glass, which can be used to make more items.

All that, plus a bunch of new Lego styles, and new items. Here’s those patch notes in full.
