Epic Games announced that Star Wars items, outfits and lightsabers are back in Fortnite until May 17th! Celebrate May the 4th for two whole weeks with outfits and gear from across the Star Wars franchise. Read up on more details about the returning collaboration below:
Star WarsTM Day is going on in Fortnite, but not just on May the 4th: Star Wars items from years past are unvaulted May 3 until May 17, 2022! Use these items in special Quests to unlock an Empire Banner. Also, every non-Battle Pass Star Wars Outfit that’s been in the Item Shop will return from a galaxy far, far away.
WIELD LIGHTSABERS ONCE AGAIN
Lightsabers are back! Pick up Luke SkywalkerTM’s Lightsaber, Kylo RenTM’s Lightsaber, and Mace WinduTM’s Lightsaber across the Island. What about the blue lightsabers? There are blue ones too, but this time they’re Obi-WanTM’s.
Returning to the Island, the E-11 Blaster Rifle can now be wielded by players! How to find one? Stormtroopers have set up checkpoints in search of Obi-Wan — go to one of these checkpoints and exchange Bars for a Blaster! Also find them in Chests and on the ground.
Speaking of Stormtroopers, go through Stormtrooper training in new Star Wars Quests. Active now until May 17 at 12 AM ET, these Quests will have you confiscate a “landspeeder” (a.k.a. a vehicle), confiscate and use “Jedi contraband” (a.k.a. a lightsaber), and more. Each May the 4th Quest rewards XP, and for completing five, you’ll earn an Empire Banner:
STAR WARS OUTFITS BACK IN THE SHOP
Over the course of the Star Wars Day festivities, every non-Battle Pass Star Wars Outfit that’s been in the Item Shop will make an intergalactic comeback:
May the 4th be with you for almost two whole weeks!
