Fortnite Star Wars Event: Lightsabers Are Back
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.
