It is a great time to be a Star Wars fan as Disney has not stopped making more content for this IP. The galactic media empire made some sick announcements for its streaming service Disney Plus. The most important were related to Star Wars. But we focus on The Book of Boba Fett and its connection to Fortnite! The series about the iconic bounty hunter has its release at the end of December and is related directly to The Mandalorian. Unfortunately, that waiting for a trailer for the Obi-Wan series will still have to wait. Perhaps the archives are incomplete.
Boba Fett Joins Fortnite
Well, the movie fans are happy. But of course, gaming fans shouldn't go away empty-handed either. And what promotion would be better than a new Fortnite skin, suitable for the Disney Plus series The Book of Boba Fett? As Disney recently announced, The Book of Boba Fett will start on December 29, 202,1 on the in-house streaming service Disney Plus and to push us even more for this cultural and cinematic highlight, Epic Games announced an official Fortnite x Boba Fett crossover.
Boba Fett x Fortnite Release Date
Boba Fett is in Fortnite! Currently, it is in the Item Shop so make sure to purchase it before the skin leaves as Epic Game rotates the item shop often.
Boba Fett comes to Fortnite just before the series is released on Disney Plus. As you can see in the promo picture above, Boba is accompanied by his partner Fennec Shand, played by Ming Na Wen. But, Epic has yet to include his partner's skin to the game and it seems unlikely at this point in time.
Boba Fett x Fortnite: Cosmetics and prices.
Boba Fett did not come to Fortnite alone. He brought a bunch of bounty hunter items with him. In fact, a whole bunch of cool Cosmetics are available from the franchise. Here is an overview of the price and cosmetics:
