Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to premiere later this month, and it looks like Fortnite is getting in on the Star Wars hype. From Star Wars Day May 4 until the 17th, the game has decided to make available all the previous Star Wars material that released in the game—and then some.
While we don’t have a look at Kenobi in the game yet, the game is bringing back characters from The Rise of Skywalker like KyloRen, Zorii Blizz, Finn, Rey, and a Sith Trooper. We also have some faces from The Book of Boba Fett with Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, Black Krrsantan, and an Imperial Stormtrooper.
The event also comes with some special missions that allow you to earn XP enough to earn an Imperial banner. You’l have missions that will tell you ‘confiscate Jedi contraband’ (or a lightsaber) or ‘confiscate a landspeeder’ (or a vehicle). Since the 17th is still a week away, we should get a variety of other goods down the line—maybe finally get that Obi-Wan character reveal. I have no doubt that they would also bring in Darth Vader too.
With Fortnite getting all that sweet Marvel marketing synergy, you can bet that their deal with Disney also includes a massive property like Star Wars. While Kenobi and Vader are already familiar characters, I’m crossing my fingers we get some new faces like the Inquisitors as well.
The Star Wars event only runs until May 17.
Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres on May 27 on Disney+. Fortnite is now playable for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, and PC.
