Fortnite uses the force to add Obi-Wan Kenobi to his roster | Digital Trends Spanish

Fortnite just finished celebrating star wars day returning skins, weapons, emotes, and gliders from the movie series to the item shop for two weeks. Now another character from a galaxy far, far away joins the battle royale. Obi-Wan Kenobi is being made into a skin to coincide with the launch of the Disney Plus series.

The Obi-Wan skin will be added a day before the launch of the Disney Plus series. The new skin can be purchased individually or with a full pack of Jedi loot likely to appear on the show.

The items are Obi-Wan’s Dessert Essentials Backpack, a Blade Pickaxe, the Jedi Interceptor Glider, and Obi-Wan’s Message Emote. Each of these items comes included in the Obo-Wan Pack, which adds a special loading screen, or players can choose which one they’d like to purchase instead.

Sadly, there is no lightsaber beak to be seen, as many expected. This is most likely because the force user’s weapon of choice is an in-game weapon that can be found whenever Epic decides to un-skip them, as it did recently for Star Wars Day.

It’s also possible to unlock Obi-Wan’s skin and back bling backpack early. For the competitive crowd of Fortnite, there is the next online competition on May 22 called “Obi-Wan Cup”. Competitors play up to ten matches and if enough points are reached by the time the event ends, they unlock items early.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi Item Pack arrives in the Item Shop Fortnite for purchase on May 26.
