Star Wars has returned to Fortnite, but only for one day, in celebration of Star Wars Day (May 4).
Lightsabers will be returning to the map as individual drops, giving players a new and flashy way to eliminate their enemies. Although sabers are melee weapons, get ready for some deflections coming your way due to the lightsaber’s blocking mechanic. Make sure to grab your own lightsaber so you can duel it out with dozens of other Jedi and Sith recruits.

As for cosmetics, Epic Games has brought back the Rey, Kylo Ren, and Sith Trooper skins in the Store, all currently priced at 1,500 V-bucks. If you’re still looking to deck your avatar out with some more Star Wars bling, you can also purchase the Starfighters glider bundle (1,800 V-bucks) and the Order and Peace tool bundle (2,000 V-bucks).
The #StarWarsDay Fortnite special will be up until tomorrow (May 5) so make sure to log in and join the battlefront.
