Another Star Wars crossover is coming soon to Fortnite Battle Royale to celebrate Disney Plus Day in-game. This time, it’s Boba Fett.
The game has experienced multiple Star Wars events in the past, bringing lightsabers to the title as a weapon and the sci-fi franchise even took over Chapter 2: Season 5.
While it’s not the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda this time, as it was back in S5, Epic Games are taking it back to the old school with a new Boba Fett skin.
They confirmed the news on November 12, with a teaser posted to their official Twitter account. Based on the art, it also celebrates The Book of Boba Fett.
