The most recent “Fortnite” Luke, Leia, and Han are characters from Star Wars.
The Star Wars projects that Epic Games worked on didn’t stop with Darth Vader. As part of “Skywalker Week,” the video game industry titan has added Luke, Leia, and Han skins to Fortnite, along with suitable extras like Luke’s Landspeeder glider and Leia’s R2-D2 back bling. If you can uncover Imperial Chests or kill Darth Vader, lightsabers are back, and fans of crazily inaccurate warriors may purchase Stormtrooper blasters.
The Fortnite Item Shop offers all of the fresh Star Wars skins and gear. The pulse weapon and “Junk Rifts” that can drop the Landspeeder are also brought back during Skywalker Week. The promotion includes unique missions to increase your XP and is open through November 8 at 9AM Eastern.
This team-up is by no means the first of its kind. To commemorate the release of The Rise of Skywalker, Epic organized a Fortnite Star Wars event in December 2019. This spring, Darth Vader and a young Obi-Wan were also made available. Though it could be one of the more significant. In the battle royale brawler, this is the most homage yet to the original movie trilogy (i.e., the most popular trilogy), which could do more to draw you in if you’re not interested in Marvel superheroes and game character crossovers.
