The LEGO crossover with Fortnite has the potential to be an absolutely wild moment in gaming history, with a whole other survival video game basically being built (eheh) within Fortnite. To celebrate the launch of Fortnite LEGO on December 7th, LEGO and Fortnite are teaming up to give away a free Fortnite skin: Explorer Emilie.

Here’s what the Explorer Emilie skin, which is a brand new skin and not a restyle of any existing Fortnite character, looks like in both her Fortnite and LEGO forms:
