The rumors were actually true and not just some weird Jedi mind trick: Obi-Wan Kenobi will appear on the island very very soon! Of course, we're all extremely excited about Disney's mini-series – now we can get in the right mood for it in Fortnite and let the hype shoot through the roof.

The Jedi Master not only comes with a brand-new skin and matching accessories, but also with his own cup! Here you can find all the info...

Obi-Wan Kenobi In Fortnite

May the Force be with you, my friend! Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 has already brought us a few exciting crossovers... and it's also far from the first time that a character from the Star Wars universe has found his way into the game.

Nevertheless, it feels like people are more hyped about Obi-Wan Kenobi. It's probably nostalgia kicking in, because most of us grew up with the Star Wars prequels. Anyway, the following items and accessories will definitely be in the game:

  • Desert Essentials Back Bling (included with the Outfit): An assortment of tools perfect for living an isolated existence on a remote desert planet.
  • Obi-Wan’s Blade Pickaxe: An ol’ reliable partner.
  • Jedi Interceptor Glider: Your new fighter has arrived.
  • Obi-Wan’s Message Emote: An important transmission…

Along with the Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit and the Kenobi, Surrounded Loading Screen, these items are available separately as an Obi-Wan Kenobi Bundle. Separately? That's right, there's a different way to get your hands on these goodies...

Reach The High Ground – Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup

On Sunday, May 22, you'll have the chance to earn the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Outfit and the "Desert Essentials" Back Bling before anyone else. You don't have to do this quest alone, though, because the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup will be a Battle Royale Duos tournament.

As befits Star Wars, Lightsabers and E-11 Blaster Rifles will also be available for use in this tournament. You can easily find out when the event will begin in your region by checking the competition tab in your game. Furthermore, the official rules for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup can be found on the Fortnite website.

Do you plan to rise to the challenge, or is your name Obi-Wan Kenobi and you just hide from your opponents? Maybe both your participation in the Cup and the finale of the Mini Disney series will have a happy ending...
