Fortnite is celebrating Star Wars Day by unlocking outfits, weapons, quests and more for a two-week 'Star Wars' event.
Every non-Battle Pass 'Star Wars' outfit that has been released in the Fortnite Item Shop will be available for purchase during the event. Making a comeback are skins like ‘Imperial Stormtrooper,’ ‘Kylo Ren,’ ‘Zorii Bliss,’ and ‘Finn,’ among others. The ‘Mandalorian’ skin will not return.
The weapon selection offers various differently colored lightsabers from characters like Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Throughout the event, players can complete Star Wars-themed quests, which will see players confiscating ‘landspeeders’ or vehicles, stealing ‘Jedi contraband,’ and more. After completing the quests, players will receive a quest ‘Empire Banner.’
The 'Star Wars' Fortnite event will be available until 12 a.m. E.T. on May 17, 2022.
