Leakers have released images of an upcoming Kylo Ren skin to Fortnite, and it appears to capture the First Order’s evil leader with impressive accuracy.

The Fortnite X Star Wars crossover event took place on December 14, seeing an exclusive clip from the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premier in-game, in the Risky Reels location. 

While the event was marred by some technical issues – for which hacker group ‘Lizard Squad’ have claimed responsibility – those that were able to successfully watch the event agreed it was another entertaining and ambitious crossover achieved by Epic Games.

Epic Games / DisneyThe crossover is not the first time Epic have partnered with a film company.

The crossover has seen numerous skins and weapons added to the game, including skins for protagonists Rey and Finn. The iconic lightsabers are also now available in-game. 

Kylo Ren Fortnite skin leaked

Popular Fortnite leaker HYPEX has revealed the aesthetics behind a brand new Kylo Ren skin, modeled on the First Order’s malicious leader from Disney’s Star Wars trilogy. 

The skin is incredibly accurate, with the mask even featuring cracks on the face to replicate how it looks in the films.

Fortnite leakers were specifically asked by Epic Games not to spoil the Star Wars event, but no such request surrounded new skins that are to be added to the game soon.

There is no specific release date attached to the Kylo Ren skin but, with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker set to release on December 19, we can expect it to be added to Fortnite prior to that. 

Closer look at the Kylo Ren skin & pickaxe

Aside from those initial images, some new leaked screenshots given us a closer look of the skin in-game and it looks super accurate.

Fans are incredibly excited at the prospect of a Kylo Ren skin, giving players a chance to storm around the battle royale map while dressed as the primary Star Wars antagonist. That’s not all, though. 

Many fans might have been expecting his pickaxe to be his lightsaber in Fortnite, but now that they have been added as weapons, his potential pickaxe remained something of a mystery.

Well, until now. That’s also been leaked ahead of schedule.

While all skins we have seen so far have been exclusively from the ‘new’ trilogy – Finn, Rey and Kylo Ren – it remains to be seen whether any characters will be added from the original trilogy. 

The thought of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia or even Darth Vader running around Fortnite is enough to excite any casual Star Wars fan.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
