It’s official. Fortnite is once again partnering up with the larger-than-life sci fi franchise of Star Wars. 

Taking to social media, the battle royale developer has confirmed that it is bringing a Fortnite x Star Wars crossover to the game. The forces will invade all of the Fortnite sub-games, including Fortnite Lego, Festival, and Battle Royale. All of this will kick off on May 3, a day before Star Wars Day. 

The short post didn’t reveal more information and was captioned with the famous line from the original movie Star Wars 1977. 

This would be the third collaboration, so the scope of in-game skins and cosmetics is limited. Due to previous crossovers, Fortnite is already laden with heaps of Star Wars-themed cosmetics. So, what will be new this time?

Here’s the Star Wars content Epic Games has already pushed out: 

  • Rey
  • Kylo Ren
  • Sith Trooper
  • Finn
  • Captain Phasma
  • Imperial Stormtrooper
  • Chewbacca
  • Yoda
  • Darth Vader
  • Princess Leia

  • Han Solo
  • Imperial Stormtrooper
  • Zorii Bliss
  • Mandalorian
  • Fennec Shand

  • Luke Skywalker
  • Leia Organa
  • Darth Maul
  • Clone Trooper variants
  • Padme Amidala
  • Anakin Skywalker
  • 501st Trooper and 212th Battalion Trooper

This long list of character skins is still missing some. So, die-hard Star Wars fans may still be anticipating more skins in the upcoming collaboration. 

Here are some Star Wars-related skins that are still missing from the game and may be added in the Fortnite X Star Wars 2024 crossover:

  • Greedo
  • Lando Calrissian
  • Emperor Palpatine
  • Qui Gon Jinn 
  • Mace Windu
  • Poe Dameron
  • Rose Tico
  • Cal Kestis

Or who knows? Epic Games may find a way to add a Lightsaber to Fortnite. Players have long been requesting Lightsaber Pickaxe, to no avail. The third time could be the charm! The crossover may also bring a new battle pass stacked with coveted Star Wars items.
