It’s time to step into the shoes of your favorite intergalactic characters as they return to the Fortnite Island. Epic Games announced yesterday that, just in time for Star Wars Day, every previous franchise skin will make a triumphant return to the free-to-play battle royale. This, in addition to the inclusion of loot-able lightsabers, E-11 blaster rifles, and a slew of new themed quests. If you want to get your hands on all of this and (perhaps) more, the celebration will end May 17.
In the announcement, Epic revealed the list of outfits returning to the front lines. Admittedly, most of these skins originate from the new generation of Star Wars, the sole exceptions being the Imperial Stormtrooper and Boba Fett. Sequel trilogy protagonists Rey and Finn, as well as antagonist Kylo Ren will be representing the main character team. Zorii Bliss, who made their origin in “The Rise of Skywalker,” will also be joining the fray.
If you’re looking for characters from “The Mandalorian” or “The Book of Boba Fett,” you’re in luck. As mentioned, Boba Fett will be returning, as well as the Wookiee Krrsantan. Fennec Shand will be the sole rep from “The Mandalorian.” In a more general category, we’ll also see the return of the Imperial Stormtrooper and Sith Trooper skins. There have been rumors that an Obi-Wan Kenobi skin will be added. But, as of writing, those have not been corroborated. We will update this story, should these rumors be confirmed or denied.
