Skywalker Week in Fortnite Explained

Epic Games

The Force is strong in Fortnite as various weapons, outfits, and items from Star Wars make their way onto the island once again.

Fortnite is home to some of the biggest crossovers in gaming. Characters from Dragon Ball Z, Marvel, DC, Evil Dead, and several other major IPs have made their way onto the island. One of the biggest franchises to crossover with Fortnite has to be Star Wars.

Players have had the opportunity to play as their favorite Star Wars characters and use various recognizable weapons various times over the last few seasons. Although, as all in-game items do so, these iconic unlockables are available for a short time before they are cycled out of the Fortnite Shop and matches.
