The Fortnite leaker tweeted: “Here is what will be crashing into the island during the Star Wars exclusive scene!

“Textures are missing from this leak but I wanted to get it out ASAP”.

They also tweeted: ”There WILL be a playlist specifically for the Star Wars exclusive scene.

“Not only this but it appears a Star Wars themed live event will happen afterwards, leading up to tons of challenges and something from the Star Wars universe “Crashing” onto the island.”

Fellow leaker Lucas7yoshi has also discovered proof of incoming challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale that are currently encrypted.

It’s believed that these challenges will be for the Fortnite Star Wars event.

While these challenges are encrypted currently, dataminers have uncovered proof of one of the rewards for the Fortnite Star Wars challenges.

This is a new Star Wars emote that was discovered by leaker s1l0x, Fortnite Intel reported in a post online.

It’s also rumoured that an upcoming Fortnite Star Wars event could feature a lightsaber limited time mode.

Colours for different lightsabers were discovered in in-game files by leaker ShiinaBR.

They posted: “There is a high chance that we’ll be able to play with lightsabers in the Star Wars LTM!

“These are 4 colors of the Star Wars “Lobster” weapons (probably file name for the lightsabers) that have been found in the files: Red, Green, Purple & Blue”.

If you want to tune in to the Fortnite Star Wars event then make sure you login to the game before the start time so you can get a spot at Risky Reels.

If, for whatever reason, you’re not able to play Fortnite during the Star Wars event then there will be plenty of Twitch streamers broadcasting it.
