How to get Fortnite’s free Star Wars Tie Whisper glider
Epic Games are stepping up their Fortnite x Star Wars crossover with some cosmetics. So, here’s how you can get your hands on the free Tie-Fighter Whisper glider.
Fortnite has been able to consolidate it’s huge popularity in the battle royale genre with constant updates and keeping the game topical. We’ve seen crossovers with Marvel’s Avengers, John Wick, and even Stranger Things, but the newest comes from the mega-popular Star Wars franchise.
There have already been skins – including the classic white Stormtrooper, Rey, Finn, and even the deathly scary Sith Trooper – and while fans may want Lightsaber pickaxes, the wait goes on for them. Yet, there will be a glider on offer, for free, for fans who want to complete their Fortnite x Star Wars set.
Getting your hands on the Tie Whisper Glider in Fortnite is pretty simple and you won’t have to jump through any hoops in the form of challenges or a whole mission set.
What you need to do is take part in the Star Wars premiere event that is happening at Risky Reels. With the even kicking off at 10:30 AM PT/1:30 PM ET/6:30 PM GMT, fans will want to grab their spot in the queue before the premiere happens half an hour later.
Epic themselves tweeted that you’ll have to watch the exclusive scene from the upcoming Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker movie to claim the reward, so make sure you’re heading to Risky Reels at around 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET/7 PM GMT.
Epic hasn’t yet confirmed as to whether or not this event will take place inside a limited-time mode, but it seems likely that this will be the case – similar to the end of season cinematics.
If it is, you won’t have to worry about being eliminated by any of your fellow players and you can simply enjoy the teaser for the highly-anticipated movie.
