Star Wars Skins And Lightsabers Are Returning To Fortnite

This week, those who recognize the holiday will celebrate Star Wars Day. A day that falls on May 4 every year because, you know, May the fourth be with you. Prepare to hear that a lot tomorrow. As for how you can mark the occasion, a bunch of Star Wars content will be returning to Fortnite to celebrate. From lightsabers to skins to blaster rifles.

There have been rumors for weeks that Fortnite players would once again get the chance to wield lightsabers, and that has now been confirmed by Epic. The weapons will be available to find around the island in green, blue, purple, and also Kylo Ren's unique red version. Lightsabers have had Fortnite players split in the past. While some consider them to be overpowered, others were shedding the rest of their loadouts in favor of lightsaber-only battles the last time they were in the game two years ago.

As for the skins, nine of the ten Star Wars characters previously added to Fortnite will be available over the course of the next two weeks. The only Star Wars character not returning to the island is The Mandalorian. That's due to the fact he was added as a Battle Pass unlockable, not someone you could buy via the in-game store. Boba Fett will be back though, as will Rey and Finn who were originally added to the game in 2019.

Lightsabers won't be the only Star Wars weapon available in The Loop starting tomorrow. You'll also be able to find blaster rifles dotted around the island via Fortnite's chests. There will also be limited-time quests to complete that will remain available, along with everything else mentioned, for two weeks, so until May 17, 2022.

As Star Wars returns to Fortnite, a character from a fellow Disney IP leaves. Moon Knight will be leaving the in-game store this week, right before the show's season finale debuts on Disney+. As for other things to look out for this Star Wars Day, fans are hoping there is some sort of official confirmation that Jedi: Fallen Order 2 is indeed in the works.
