May has become, over the years, a very good month for those who love Star Wars, as fans all over the world come together on May 4th to celebrate the many gripping stories that have been set in a galaxy far, far away. Being the most popular game still running today, Fortnite usually joins in the celebration with skins and items inspired by what is probably the most recognizable sci-fi franchise ever.
May is almost over, but the fun for Star Wars fans who also love Fortnite is only about to begin, as one of the most popular Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi, is debuting very soon in the battle royale game developed by Epic Games as a skin alongside other cosmetics. Here’s how to get them.
How to Get the Obi-Wan Cosmetics in Fortnite
On May 20, 2022, Epic Games confirmed that the Obi-Wan Kenobi outfit will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop starting from May 26, alongside other cosmetics like the Obi-Wan Back Bling, Pickaxe, Glider, and others. Star Wars fans, however, will not have to wait that long to get the new skin, as they will get a chance to unlock it for free in just a couple of days.
On May 22, Fortnite will host the Obi-Wan Back Kenobi Cup which will offer players the chance to earn the Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit and Desert Essentials Back Bling cosmetics early. During this Battle Royale Duos tournament, Lightsabers and E-11 Blaster Rifles will also be available, so you’d better get ready for some intense fights. May the Force be with you during the matches that each competitor can play in their respective region.
Fortnite is among the most played battle royale games ever made. If you have yet to try out the game and see what makes it so popular, you can get it for free for all modern gaming platforms, including Nintendo Switch and smart devices.
