Fortnite appears to be readying even more Mandalorian content. A teaser video released on the official Fortnite Twitter shows the hero of the popular Star Wars streaming series viewing a hologram. (The reveal, a new LTM called Mando's Bounty, has now been announced and you can play it for a special Beskar umbrella.)

The tweet shows Mando viewing a hologram with the offer of a job. In the Mandalorian series, the main character makes his way as a bounty hunter before his career takes a radical turn due to an obligation to protect The Child, aka Baby Yoda.

The game already added quite a bit of Mandalorian content, including a Mandalorian skin, Baby Yoda, and the appearance of his signature ship, the Razor Crest. It's unclear what else Epic Games may have in mind as a tie-in for the Mandalorian series. It could even just be using the bounty hunter role as a way to introduce another pop culture element altogether.

Fortnite is still one of the most successful free-to-play battle royale games, and in the past year it has become a sprawling pop culture mash-up. Just recently the game added Snake Eyes, the popular ninja character from GI Joe.
