Star Wars seems to be everywhere. Now the Jedi are even making their way into Fortnite. Epic Games has confirmed that Obi-Wan Kenobi will be coming as a skin soon.

Cary, North Carolina – The news about Fortnite has been overwhelming for the past few days. The game from Epic Games is about to end Season 2 in Chapter 3 and new weapons and leaks about events and content are coming every hour. But now the development studio is going one better and bringing Star Wars, one of the most successful franchises of all time, to the Battle Royale. Obi-Wan Kenobi will soon be making his appearance in the Fortnite item shop.

Fortnite: Epic Games brings Obi-Wan Kenobi and other cosmetics to the item shop

What’s in the shop? Epic Games has gone to great lengths to bring the full breadth of the Force to Fortnite and Star Wars fans. Of course, at the heart of the whole package is Obi-Wan Kenobi’s outfit himself, which players can use to secure the “high ground” in battle. But where there is a Jedi Knight, a clever weapon should not be missing. As a skin for the pickaxe, the outfit with “Obi-Wan’s Blade” gets the matching melee weapon.

There is also a hang glider in the look of a Jedi interceptor, an emote and a new back accessory. So with the complete package you get all these items:

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit
  • Desert Gear Back Bling
  • Obi-Wan’s Blade Pickaxe
  • Hang Glider “Jedi Interceptor
  • Obi-Wan’s Message Emote

When will Obi-Wan become available? As confirmed by Epic Games, Obi-Wan will be available in Fortnite’s item shop starting May 27th with all of his additional cosmetics. This also confirms the leak for Fortnite Update 20.40, in which Obi-Wan appeared as a possible skin for the Battle Royale a few days ago. However, players may encounter Obi-Wan Kenobi in the game before the official release. On May 22, 2022, the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup took place in Fortnite, where a few lucky fans were already able to win the skin.

What else is new about Star Wars? Although Obi-Wan Kenobi as a skin is a small highlight for some fans, Star Wars is not only a big topic in Fortnite. The outfit will be released on May 27th to coincide with the release of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+. In the past few days there have also been new rumors about Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2, which according to Jeff Grubb will be subtitled “Survivor”. At the same time, many PS Plus subscribers suspect that Jedi Fallen Order will be free in June 2022.
