Today is the day for Fortnite players! A few days ago we reported that Anakin Skywalker would be joining the battle on the Fortnite Island, and today Epic Games writes in with all the information you need to know about the Star Wars event!
Fortnite Battle Royale is taking a step back in the Star Wars™ timeline. In Fortnite’s “Find the Force” — running today until May 23 at 9 AM ET — players can choose among Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker as their Jedi trainer (or Darth Maul as their Sith trainer), complete Find the Force Quests to unlock cosmetic rewards, find new Outfits in the Item Shop, and more!
- Find the Force Quests: Complete Find the Force Quests to earn cosmetic rewards in Find the Force’s free reward track, including the Clone Trooper Outfit. Purchase the Premium Reward Track Upgrade for an extra layer of rewards, including the Darth Maul Outfit. For more information about both tracks and their rewards, visit the Fortnite blog.
- May the Force Be With You: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Maul await players on the Island in hologram form. After accepting their offer to train, players will receive training where they will learn to wield a lightsaber and a few new Force abilities including push, pull, or throw. Players may receive a green Jedi Padawan Lightsaber from Obi-Wan Kenobi, and from Anakin Skywalker a blue one. From Darth Maul players will receive a red Sith Apprentice Lightsaber. Additionally, Force training will give players the ability to sprint faster and double jump while their lightsaber is equipped, regardless of which trainer they choose.
- For Find the Force: Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala Outfits are available now in the Item Shop, along with the 501st Trooper and 212th Battalion Trooper Outfits! In addition to the default Style, the Padmé Amidala Outfit comes with the battle-worn Geonosis Combat Style.
