• Fortnite collaborates with Star Wars for new content, including quests, weapons, and map locations.
  • May the Fourth celebration in Fortnite features a new Star Wars event starting on May 3, 2024.
  • Expect Cantina Band track, Mythic Wookie Bowcaster weapon, Leia skin, Lightsabers, and more in the collaboration.

A new Fortnite x Star Wars collaboration is on the horizon, and soon enough, players will be able to try out brand-new content and play with returning items and weapons. Fortnite has participated in dozens of collaborations over the years.

Many collaborations result in time-limited quests and cosmetic items, while others take it to the next level with the release of themed weapons and map locations. So, while some of these projects are a one-time thing, such as the Creed Cup back in 2023, others have multiple waves with recurring events every now and then. Out of all the collaborations in Fortnite, Star Wars might be the franchise that returns more often.


Fortnite Island Code Lets You Play a New Invincible Experience

Invincible game developer Skybound Games shares the unique Island Code required to access a brand-new Invincible-themed Fortnite experience.

With May the Fourth around the corner, many fans were already expecting some sort of celebration in Fortnite, as it has become an annual tradition at this point. On April 15, Fortnite revealed the upcoming collaboration with Star Wars on May 3. The announcement was made on several official profiles, such as the one dedicated to Fortnite Battle Royale, LEGO Fortnite, and Fortnite Festival, so players can expect content for each of these game modes.

When Does the Fortnite Star Wars Event Start?

Several game modes were introduced to Fortnite since the last Star Wars event, so it would make sense for this new collaboration to include content for each of the main modes in the game. The Fortnite Festival’s teaser mentioned the addition of the Cantina Band as a jam track. Leaks also suggest that a Mythic Wookie Bowcaster weapon could be coming, a new Leia skin or variant will be added, and Lightsabers and Force abilities seen in the Find the Force event will be making a return this year.

The event starts on May 3, which coincides with the end of the Fortnite x Avatar: The Last Airbender event. Since the Elements Pass was made available with the Avatar collab, players shouldn’t expect the Star Wars event to have the same magnitude as previous events. Nevertheless, it will still be great fun for most players, even if they’re not Star Wars fans, and gamers will have plenty of content to entertain themselves with until the end of Chapter 5 Season 2.
