Today, the Fortnite v28.30 update dropped, offering the Lady Gaga Fortnite Festival Pass, changes to LEGO Fortnite, and more. 

Here’s a complete list of Fortnite v28.30 patch notes and what’s new in the game!

Lady Gaga has landed in Fortnite, fulfilling a joke five years in the making. Like the Fortnite x The Weeknd collaboration, Lady Gaga joins the Fortnite Festival mode lineup with Outfits and other in-game cosmetics. 

The Grammy Award-winning singer debuts with two Fortnite skins: one included in the Premium Festival Pass and another in the Item Shop. Those looking to unlock 22 rewards can spend 1,800 V-Bucks on the Premium version of the Festival Pass. 

Fortnite Festival Season 2 will be live through April, so there’s plenty of time to acquire the Lady Gaga in-game cosmetics and other game mode-related items. 

LEGO Fortnite adds fishing mechanic in v28.30

Fortnite v28.30 provided a significant boost to LEGO Fortnite, adding a much-needed fishing mechanic. This works similarly to Battle Royale mode, except that you must craft a Fishing Rod. 

Once you do that using one of the various Crafting Benches, the world is yours to catch and consume fish. There are 15 species overall, and you can either eat them raw or use the new Food Processor to craft elaborate meals. 

No matter which you choose, fishing is a worthy asset in LEGO Fortnite and should be treated as such.

Rocket Racing adds Speed Run game mode in Fortnite v28.30

The most noteworthy addition to Rocket Racing is Speed Run, a brand-new game mode. Speed Runs allow you to test yourself on specific race tracks from a time perspective. The goal is to achieve a faster time than previous attempts.

You will also see a "ghost" version of your vehicle on the track in each ensuing run, showing exactly how you raced last time. New Quests have also been introduced, which upon completion, will give you the Sprintspark Trail.
