I've been following the rumors of Star Wars skins arriving in Fortnite for well over a year now and we've only ever seen the Obi-Wan and Darth Vader content arrive.
It's so surprising to see an incredible Star Wars bundle drop in a random update seemingly out of nowhere! Not only do we have three new skins and a ton of new content, but a whole week is being dedicated to the amazing content collab.
Fortnite X Star Wars Skins
We are being treated to three long-awaited Star Wars skins once Fortnite Update 22.30 is over. Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and Luke Skywalker are coming to the island!
In the bundle will be all three skins and their alternative outfits. Also included is the Slugthrower Rifle Pickage, X-34 Landspeeder Glider, R2-D2 Back Bling, Electrostaff Pickaxx, Millennium Falcon Back Bling, and the Vibro-staff Pickaxe.
Darth Vader is also set to return to the island as an NPC it appears if the trailer is anything to go by. It's unlikely he will be purchasable in the item store given that he was a top-tier battle pass skin just a few seasons ago, but we could be wrong!
You won't have to purchase the full Star Wars bundle in Fortnite if you just want access to very specific skins/cosmetics. Granted, if your goal is to own everything, the bundle will offer the best price possible with heavy discounts versus buying each item individually.
After the disappointment of Fortnitemares, Epic is bringing hype levels back with this announcement. While the arguments for and against licensed skins continue to rumble on, it can't be denied that this is a huge deal. We're keen to see if there is any other major surprises left in Season 4 with just five weeks left!
