Players and dataminers scoured the game files after the most recent update and found a few references or changes there that indicated that we would soon see Star Wars content highlighted in the game. No release date n has yet to be given for that content nor officially confirmed, but given the time of year, it’s not hard to guess when we might see Star Wars take over. Fortnite, or at least take over the Item Shop.
On May 4th, the Star Wars party that takes place at the same time each year as a play on “The Force Be With You” is coming soon.

Although we can assume that we will see some Star Wars content in Fortnite on that day or around that date, we do not know what the extent of the plans will be. The “event” could consist entirely of skins and other cosmetics brought back to the Item Shop for players to purchase. It wouldn’t be as impressive as a full event, but there are also no upcoming Star Wars projects in the immediate future to coincide with the May 4th date, so it makes sense that we see a light event. of a sort.
We can also look at the May 4th celebrations of last year as an indication of what is to come. Last year, Epic Games brought Lightsabers back to the island for players to use in matches for a limited time. Four different lightsabers, one each for Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu, Rey, and Kylo Ren, have been brought back after being added in the first season of Chapter 2. Cosmetics also returned to the Item Shop last year. . We got new content from The Mandalorian in Fortnite since all that has happened, so it’s likely to make an appearance as well.
Fortnite The May 4th event only lasted one day last year, so we expect this one to have a short uptime as well.
