Fortnite is one of the biggest online games in the world, with millions of players regularly getting on to play matches with others. It’s a game that gets continuously updated with new content and big collaborations with a variety of major brands and franchises. So it’s not surprising to see more content from a galaxy far, far away make it into Fortnite in a significant way. Star Wars fans may want to dive back into the game for a few surprising additions.
Just in time for May 4th, or May The 4th as it’s known to Star Wars fans, Fortnite players will be able to play as a few new characters from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. The official Fortnite blog shared details of the announcement to players. Starting now, players can access the “Find the Force” content that allows them to play as Anakin Skywalker, Padme Amidala, or Darth Maul online. Also included are skins for a 501st Clone Trooper and 212th Battalion Trooper that players can equip upon unlocking. There’s even an alternate version of Padme’s outfit from the Battle of Geonosis. But that’s not all that comes with the new Star Wars content for the game.
A collection of twelve quests for the crossover event rewards players with new cosmetics as well, including an extra Clone Trooper outfit and the opportunity to get a Sith Holocron upon completing all of the new quests. When players collect three Sith Holocrons, they can unlock Darth Maul’s Sith Infiltrator Glider. The new quests will go live in the game periodically, starting on May 7th, continuing on May 12th, and finishing on May 17th. Each quest will be titled “Begun the Clone Wars Have”, “Fall of the Republic”, and “The First Galactic Empire” respectively as they are released.
This Star Wars X Fornite collaboration also comes with a new mini Battle Pass, which has a premium reward track that cost 1,000 V-bucks/$8.00 to unlock. This can yield extra rewards as you play the game online, allowing players to get even more cosmetics and other items. Purchasing the track also immediately gives players a Coruscant Guard outfit to use.
The final reward on the track is the Darth Maul outfit, so you’ll have to get the premium track in order to look like the infamous Sith lord while you play. Another few rewards included there are the outfits for a Wolf Pack clone trooper and Ahsoka’s clone trooper outfit, as well as other smaller Star Wars-themed rewards. Fortnite players will need to play enough to find and earn most of the rewards if they want to show off their love for Star Wars to everyone online.
While in-game during the collaboration event, players will gain the ability to use various Star Wars weapons and abilities. This includes using The Force in different ways, wielding a lightsaber until the match ends, and even shooting a DC-15 blaster that can be found in chests during games. For anyone that’s a big fan of the Star Wars prequels, there are a lot of goodies to check out and use in-game. For some players, it’ll be fun to check out the barrage of new content that keeps them playing Fortnite, while others will just be happy to see more love for Star Wars while celebrating May the 4th with everyone.
