Fortnite May the 4th

It's that time of the year again! In celebration of the May the 4th tradition, Star Wars items are returning to Fortnite starting today until May 17 at noon Eastern Time. To sweeten the event: every non-Battle Pass Star Wars Outfit will be in the Item Shop for players who missed out the first time they were available.

Whether in the Battle Royale or Zero Build mode, players can use Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber and a few other color choices on the field now, even including Obi-Wan's blue one from the films. If you're more of a gunslinger, the E-11 Blaster Rifle returns to the Island, and you can find them inside Chests.

A neat event that Fortnite has going is the Star Wars quests, which put players through a series of Stormtrooper training. From today until May 17, the quests will have players confiscate a "landspeeder," "Jedi contraband," and many more items that reward XP. Once five of them are completed, players will get the unique Empire Banner to show off that they're worthy Stormtroopers.

Following those two-week activities and additions, every non-Battle Pass Star Wars Outfit returns to the Item Shop starting today. From the Finn to Imperial Stormtrooper to Kylo Ren Outfit, you can finally nab them altogether if you want to deck out the look of your character during matches.

Are you diving onto the island this next two weeks to celebrate May the 4th? Let us know in the comments!
