Star Wars Is Returning To Fortnite At The Most Obvious Time

"I've got a good feeling about this," Fortnite's developer says.


Star Wars content is coming back to Fortnite in May just in time for the Star Wars holiday of May the 4th. A teaser video confirms that the latest Star Wars x Fortnite crossover event begins May 3, but we don't know just yet what content might be included in this newest wave.

"I've got a good feeling about this..." reads a line from Fortnite's announcement post, riffing on Luke Skywalker's "I've got a bad feeling about this" line from the 1977 original movie.

The teaser suggests that the Star Wars event will span Fortnite's battle royale mode, as well as Lego Fortnite and the Fortnite Festival rhythm game.

Epic and Star Wars previously teamed up for Ahsoka, Anakin, Padme, Finn, Rey, Darth Vader, and Stormtrooper outfits, among numerous others. 2023's Star Wars event in Fortnite added Force powers and a Star Wars-themed mini battle pass. Star Wars content has made its way into Fortnite since 2019, so it's no surprise to see the crossovers continue this year.

GameSpot will report back on this year's Star Wars content in Fortnite as it's announced. In February, Disney invested $1.5 billion into Epic Games to create a Disney universe within Fortnite.

May 3 is also the day that The Phantom Menace returns to theaters to celebrate its 25th anniversary. On May 4, theaters will show the entire nine-movie, 20-hour Skywalker Saga. Presumably there will be more Star Wars news to come on or before May 4, so keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
