Fortnite: Obi-Wan Rumored to be Coming to the Game

It’s that time of year again: May the fourth be with you.

As millions prepare to celebrate their love of all things Star Wars, Fortnite may have something extra special in mind. In addition to the inclusion of lightsabers in the beloved free-to-play Battle Royale, a leak would suggest a new Obi-Wan Kenobi skin will be made available to celebrate the Obi-Wan series coming to Disney+ on May 27.

The supposed leak, posted to Twitter by @HYPEX, is a still-frame showing a robed character holding a blue lightsaber. Admittedly, it isn’t much to go on, but it would certainly make sense given the timing of the upcoming series.

Fortnite’s event celebrating Star Wars also brings some new goodies for players to take advantage of.

Lightsabers — belonging to Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, Mace Windu, and Obi-Wan Kenobi — can be found across the island, in addition to E-11 blaster rifles, which can be found at various checkpoints set up by Stormtroopers.

Players can also receive training to become a Stormtrooper by accepting quests, which will involve confiscating vehicles, lightsabers, and more. Quests are only available until May 17 at 12 AM ET, but you’ll earn an Empire Banner if you complete five.

Lastly, a variety of Star Wars-themed skins will make a comeback. In fact, according to Epic Games, every non-Battle Pass outfit that’s been in the item shop will be returning, including:

If you would like to take part in the intergalactic celebration, it will be held through May 17, so make sure to drop in and check it out before it ends!
