The Fortnite and Stars Wars collaboration appears to be an ongoing affair. Though the exclusive scene premiere from Stars Wars: The Rise of Skywalker took place today, the Star Wars content only seems to be ramping up. We already have several skins for the Lucas Films franchise, but it looks like even more is coming.
According to leaks from Fortnite data-miners, there could be as many as four more skins on their way. However, thanks to today’s event, we now have our first look at some of the upcoming skins, including a Kylo Ren character. Also, today’s event added Lightsabers and a Blaster Rifle into the game.
More Star Wars cosmetics coming to Fortnite
Two nights ago, we got a look at our first set of Star Wars skins in Fortnite. When these skins were rolled out, data-miners on Twitter made a startling discovery. According to leakers, there are as many as four more sets still encrypted in the game files.
Looks like there will be at least 4 more encrypted itemshop bundles during this Christmas event!

However, today’s Star Wars premiere may have unlocked some of the encrypted files. Data-miners managed to find a bunch of different cosmetics and information for the next month of Fortnite. Spoiler alert: it includes a lot of Star Wars content.
First up, from the PC files, @HYPEX found a potential Kylo Ren skin. Of course, it’s simply a leak. But since the files already have renderings of the skin, there’s an extremely high probability we’ll see this skin in Fortnite relatively soon.

Next, @ShiinaBR shows us what the “Zorii Bliss” skin might look like. It’s unknown if these two skins will be released in a pack, as we saw with the first set, but there’s a good chance each encrypted set will come to the Item Shop together.

In addition to the leaked skins we see above, there are also some other Star Wars items currently in Fortnite. Scattered around the map, players can find Star Wars-themed chests that contain Lightsabers and Blaster Rifles. The Lightsabers can block bullets and deal a ton of damage. Many in the community are comparing the item to the Infinity Blade we saw last year in Fortnite. There are currently four different Lightsaber colors: blue, purple, red, and green.
The Star Wars content should only keep on coming through the month of December. Make sure to stay tuned to Daily Esports for all of your Fortnite news.
