Fortnite Star Wars Event: Lightsabers Are Back

Monday, May 4th, 2020 6:53 am

Celebrate Star Wars Day by dressing up like Rey, Kylo Ren, and more.

May 4 is Star Wars Day, and to celebrate, Star Wars-themed content has returned to the world of Fortnite. (Star Wars items were previously added to the game in December 2019 to celebrate the film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.)

With this Star Wars event, players can access four different colors and designs of lightsabers:

  • Green (Luke Skywalker)
  • Blue (Rey)
  • Purple (Mace Windu)
  • Crossguard Red (Kylo Ren)

In addition, you can purchase Star Wars-themed Outfits, Back Blings, Emotes, and more from the in-game Item Shop. For instance, you can pick up three Outfits that will let you dress up like Rey, Kylo Ren, and a Sith Trooper.

This Star Wars event will only be around for a limited time, so have fun playing with these lightsabers while you can!

Star Wars isn’t the first brand or franchise to have a crossover event in Fortnite. Previous events have focused on things like The Avengers, Borderlands, and John Wick. While Fortnite itself is rated T for Teen, some of these crossovers feature content from films and video games (for instance) that have mature or adult ratings.
