The cooperation between Fortnite and Disney continues because two more famous characters from Star Wars could appear in Fortnite Chapter 3. And these are none other than the long-awaited Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader himself.
The collaboration between Fortnite and Star Wars in Chapter 2 Season 1 was one of the most successful collaborations in the game. At that time, characters from the New Star Wars Trilogy were added as item store skins, and fans loved it. Later, even The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda were added to the Battle Pass. And most recently, Boba Fett appeared in Fortnite with the release of the Disney+ series "The Book of Boba Fett." And it seems we're in for another surprise in Chapter 3 with the debut of characters from the original trilogy.
[UPDATE, MAY 4, 22]
Confirmed: Obi-Wan Is Coming To Fortnite
Once again, we were right. Epic has released the first official Obi-Wan skin teaser! Take a look for yourself:
Okay, we admit it, you really can't tell much from this image. But eagle-eyed fans will recognize who it is. Obi-Wan is expected to show up on the island in the next few days and will be accompanied by a few more outfits. Until then, you can pass the time with some Star Wars challenges and the lightsabers that have now officially made it into the game. We'll probably have to wait a little longer for Darth Vader....
Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Skin Leaks
In some recent leaks, it was revealed that with the release of the new Star Wars series on Disney+, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Fortnite could be teaming up with the franchise once again.
We could actually get Darth Vader & Obi-Wan outfits in Fortnite when the Obi-Wan-Kenobi series officially releases in 2022 on Disney Plus, considering the close relationship they have pic.twitter.com/plrpk7NUJd— FBRFeed (@FortniteBRFeed) December 30, 2021
The community has speculated that both Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi could be added to the game with some new Star Wars cosmetics as part of the collaboration. Among them, maybe even Obi-Wan's trademark "Hello There" as an emote! A dream come true for Fortnite and Star Wars fans!
However, that was not all. Although the lightsabers disappeared from the game a long time ago, a YouTuber named GKI found the lightsaber sounds in Fortnite's game files. This could mean that Epic is working on this weapon again to bring it back to Fortnite at a later date.
And as we all know, there has been long talk of Darth Vader joining the other characters from the franchise sooner or later. A Darth Vader crossover is a cash cow Epic cannot pass on.
When Are Darth Vader And Obi-Wan Coming To Fortnite?
We assume that the Darth Vader and Obi-Wan skins will be coming to Fortnite similar to the Boba Fett crossover, with the release of the Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, the release date is unknown at this time. We only know that the series will be released sometime in 2022.
As soon as we have more detailed info for you, we will of course update this article, so stay tuned!
