Star Wars Returns To Fortnite, But Not For Long

Star Wars items are available again in the Fortnite item shop, but only until May 5.


A day before the official celebration begins on May 4, Fortnite has brought back Star Wars goodies. Only available for a limited time, they include lightsabers from some of the franchise's biggest characters as well as outfits, emotes, and more.

Four different lightsabers are currently available in the game's item shop. These include Rey and Obi-Wan's blue lightsaber, Luke's green saber, Mace Windu's purple saber, and Kylo Ren's special red lightsaber, complete with its unique crossguard.

A "dark side" emote is available now for 200 V-Bucks, as are skins for Kylo Ren, a red Sith Trooper, and Rey. Though they won't give you any competitive advantage in battle royale, looking that cool may boost your confidence enough to increase your performance.

You won't have very long to get the goodies before they're gone again. Star Wars Fortnite items will be gone on May 5, but the fun doesn't stop with Fortnite. There are a ton of different deals available on Star Wars games right now, including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and older releases on Steam.

The deals are available across PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and include popular games as well as smaller titles from decades ago. It's also worthwhile to get a month of Disney+ in order to watch The Mandalorian as well as all nine films in the Skywalker Saga.
