Fan-Favorite Items and Outfits Return to Fortnite to Celebrate Star Wars Day
Star Wars Day is upon us followed by Revenge of the Fifth and the Star Wars Celebration coming at the end of the month and as usual, Epic Games is bringing some fan-favorite items to Fortnite for the next two weeks to celebrate the occasion. Returning for another year to battle royale island are lightsabers, stormtroopers, blasters, new cosmetics, and much more.
The blog post released by Epic Games reads:
“Star Wars Day is going on in Fortnite, but not just 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.”
Use the force for good or evil when you pick up Luke Skywalker‘s green lightsaber, Kylo Ren‘s red cracked-kyber-crystal lightsaber, Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s blue lightsaber, or Mace Windu‘s purple lightsaber.
Players will have the chance to wield the E-11 Blaster Rife. Players will have to go to an on-map checkpoint where you will come across stormtroopers searching for Obi-Wan Kenobi. To obtain the blaster, you will just need to exchange gold bars for the blaster or try to land one from a chest.
Epic Games details the quests, saying:
“Speaking of Stormtroopers, go through Stormtrooper training in new Star Wars Quests. Active now until May 17 at 12 a.m. 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.”
You can’t roam battle royale island without a proper outfit, so Epic Games is bringing back the Star Wars outfits to the Item Shop. These include:
- Imperial Stormtrooper
- Kylo Ren
- Zorii Bliss
- Sith Trooper
- Boba Fett
- Fennec Shand
Be ready to celebrate Star Wars Day on a battle royale island far…far…away.
