Darth Vader x Fortnite

At this point, who isn't in Fortnite? According to a new leak via established Fortnite leaker and dataminer, ShiinaBR, the next season’s boss battle may include the most iconic Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader. Although Star Wars fans shouldn't get too excited just yet. Despite the leak, ShiinaBR also said that the next season will not be Star Wars-themed. *Sad R2D2 Noises*

The speculation that Darth Vader may actually be a boss encounter is bolstered by the fact that during Epic Game's State of Unread event a file titled "c3s3_VADER was revealed. From the file name, it's almost impossible to imagine any other enemy or character that could fit the title.

It’s not hard to believe that Darth Vader would come to Fortnite eventually. Fortnite has collaborated with Star Wars in the past, granting players access to an array of themed skins, lightsabers, and blaster weapons. Recently even Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, and Krrsantan from The Book Of Boba Fett have joined the fray.

Epic Games has not officially confirmed Darth Vader’s addition, so Fortnite and Star Wars fans should hold on to their lightsabers and await official news. If you would like to read more about Darth Vader and his possible appearance in Fortnite, head over to Gamerant for an in depth report.
