The Fortnite x Star Wars Anakin Skywalker crossover is the latest collaboration between Fortnite and Star Wars. This time, Anakin Skywalker makes his presence known in Fortnite, accompanied by additional Star Wars skins and brand-new Star Wars Mythics. So, let's review the finer details of the Fortnite x Star Wars Anakin Skywalker crossover.

Fortnite x Star Wars Anakin Skywalker crossover: Release date

Anakin Skywalker and the rest of the content in the latest Fortnite x Star Wars crossover is scheduled to arrive in Fortnite on May 2, 2023. This is just two days before May 4, known by many as Star Wars Day.

If you're familiar with Star Wars lore, you know that Anakin Skywalker already exists in Fortnite, albeit as his alter ego, Darth Vader. Now, the pre-Darth Vader version of Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars: Episode II and Star Wars: Episode III is making an appearance in Fortnite.

The main attraction of this particular Fortnite x Star Wars collaboration is, of course, the Anakin Skywalker Outfit. You can purchase young Anakin Skywalker in the Item Shop, likely for 1,500 V-Bucks.

However, Anakin won't be alone. Expect the skin to be accompanied by accessory cosmetics like a Back Bling, Harvesting Tool, Glider, Emote, and/or Loading Screen. While you can spend a bunch of V-Bucks to purchase these extras separately, all the bonus items will probably be packaged together in an Anakin Skywalker Bundle for somewhere between 2,200 and 2,400 V-Bucks.

And that's not all! According to prominent Fortnite leakers like HYPEX, this Fortnite x Star Wars crossover will feature multiple skins. Iconic Star Wars characters like Boba Fett, Mandalorian, Han Solo, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, among others, already have skins, so we can only wonder what additional characters from Star Wars will make their debut on May 2, 2023.

Fortnite x Star Wars Anakin Skywalker crossover: New Mythic weapons and Force Mythics

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the upcoming Fortnite x Star Wars Anakin Skywalker crossover is that it's introducing brand-new Fortnite Mythic weapons and Force Mythics. So far, the only Star Wars weapons Fortnite players have had the pleasure to mess around with have been the Blaster Rifles and the Fortnite Lightsabers. But according to leaks, more Star Wars Mythics are on their way!

Star Wars features all sorts of different weapons that Epic Games could transform into Fortnite Mythics, such as the Wookiee Bowcaster or a Blaster Pistol. Concerning Force Mythics, these will presumably function like the Mythic Marvel Powers. As for what the Force Mythics will be, we imagine that classic Star Wars abilities like Force Choke and Force Lightning will be among the surefire Force abilities to convert into Force Mythics.

That sums up everything we know so far about the imminent Fortnite x Star Wars crossover headlined by Anakin Skywalker. Experience brand-new Star Wars Mythics and play Fortnite as Anakin Skywalker before he turned to the dark side of the Force starting May 2, 2023.
