Epic Games has announced another crossover with Star Wars as Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi makes his way into Fortnite as a new skin. Here’s everything we know.
The abundant amount of skins available for fans of Fortnite continues to grow at a rapid pace. With Epic Games buildings and nurturing great working relationships with legendary franchises across the zeitgeist, it seems that nothing is off the table.
One of the most acclaimed crossovers that Epic Games has managed to bring to Fortnite was Star Wars. Since then, the relationship has only flourished, with players able to use lightsabers in-game and even receiving skins of Rey and the Mandalorian.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is the most recent skin from the galaxy far, far away to be introduced to the chaotic battle royale.
Obi-Wan Kenobi Fortnite skin release date
To celebrate the release of Disney+’s limited series Obi-Wan Kenobi, Epic Games partnered up with LucasFilm to bring fans a treat: an Obi-Wan skin in Fortnite.
Players will be able to purchase the Obi-Wan Kenobi Fortnite skin in the in-game shop beginning on May 26, 2022, at 5 pm PT/8 pm EST/ 1 am BST, just a day before the show arrives at Disney+.
