Fortnite has brought three of the original Star Wars characters to the game.
It’d be fair to say that Star Wars is a pretty big part of Fortnite currently. The game brought in Obi-Wan Kenobi earlier in Chapter 3, and later on Darth Vader as both a character in last season’s Battle Pass as well as a boss. Well, the Fortnite crew have decided they weren’t done with Star Wars after all, and with just about a month left in the current season, the developers have decided to bring in the original trio of heroes from Star Wars.
Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker have been added to the game to be purchased by any Fortnite fan who wants a little more of the fun from a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away. They’re not the only ones back in Fortnite, however.
Leia and Luke’s father, Darth Vader, is also once again terrorizing the Fortnite island. His return means that now you can fight both the Herold and Vader as season bosses. Though, Vader isn’t expected to stick around.
