LEGO Fortnite is bringing home the bacon in its next update

Moo-ve over cows, there's a new creature in town.

More details have been leaked about the next update coming to LEGO Fortnite, with another recognized creature from Old McDonald’s farm entering the game.

LEGO Fortnite already has several creatures roaming around the world, with wolves, sheep, chickens, and cows giving the LEGO block treatment, and now it seems a new farmyard friend will be making its debut.

According to reliable leaker iFireMonkey, pigs are coming to LEGO Fortnite in the next update—which looks to have a particular focus on farmyard and animals.

Last week, leaks indicated Animal Cookies are coming to LEGO Fortnite, allowing you to tame wild creatures. But the only animal that can be tamed, per the leaks, will be boars.

With the two leaks shared separately, it seems that pigs and boars will be different creatures in LEGO Fortnite, and hopefully, a feature will be added later down the line that allows you to tame any creature you encounter.

While you can trap creatures in LEGO Fortnite to make a farm, they will despawn and won’t remain there, meaning that players cannot yet make a farm and live life out on the range—though the signs are that this will be changing.

This isn’t the only major update due for LEGO Fortnite in the immediate future. May 3 will see the newest collaboration between Fortnite and Star Wars. Though there have been collaborations in the past, this is the first time the LEGO Fortnite game mode will be involved.

LEGO versions of Star Wars skins are already available in Fortnite, but the leaked roadmap suggests a big update is on the cards for the collaboration, which may see Star Wars builds, vehicles, and creatures added to the game mode.
