In case anyone missed it, the Epic Games title previously had a crossover with the Galaxy Far, Far Away during the release of Disney’s movie under the last trilogy.

In that collaboration, players were offered to choose between the skins based on Rey, Kylo Ren, and Sith Trooper. And of course, the Lightsabers were there, too, for their convenience.

Now it looks like Fortnite is once again ready to bring the epic crossover for its players. According to one of the trusted scoopers, Shiina on Twitter, Star Wars is coming to the battle royale sooner than expected. Because Star Wars Day, aka May 4th, falls this week. So it makes total sense for the event to begin at the same time as well.
