Ali-A reveals what happens when you reach Star Destroyer in Fortnite

A new Star Wars-themed crossover in Fortnite Chapter 2 celebrates the release of the new Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game and it has more to offer than just a free Imperial Stormtrooper skin.

Any player who purchases Jedi: Fallen Order from the Epic Games store will automatically receive a free Stormtrooper skin in Fortnite as well.

Along with the new skin if players take a moment to look up during the event, they’ll see a Star Destroyer orbiting menacingly above the map.

Some players think the ship will move closer to the map in coming days to trigger some kind of in-game event, but in the meantime, others have decided to see what happens when you get to the ship itself.

How do you even get to the Star Destroyer in Fortnite?

It’s certainly not possible to reach the ship during a regular Fortnite match and it doesn’t seem to do anything more than float in the sky the entire time.

But, Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A proved it is possible to visit the ship in the sky above the island by using the game’s Creative mode in his November 15 video.

Timestamp at 4:40 for mobile users.

Unfortunately, there seems to be very little to the craft once you get up there, as Ali-A simply clips through the ship with nothing interesting popping up.

That doesn’t necessarily rule out the possibility there’s more to come with the Star Destroyer and the Star Wars event, but it seems the current version is most likely just decoration.

Some players feel that Chapter 2 has been lacking in any exciting gameplay additions or new stuff in general, so hopefully, there’ll be more to come from this Star Wars crossover.

Epic Games / DisneyThe Star Wars crossover is giving players who buy Jedi: Fallen Order a free Stormtrooper skin.

Epic has given no time frame for how long the Star Wars promotion will be around, or how long the Stormtrooper skin will be available in stores either.

Jedi: Fallen Order has been well-received initially it seems though, which could play into how long the crossover event goes on for.

The Stormtrooper skin is still available in the in-game shop for 1,500 V-Bucks or “free” along with Jedi: Fallen Order at the time of writing, and the Star Destroyer remains in the sky, for now.

New Fortnite NFL skins arriving before Season 5: Release date & time

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
