Fortnite has added new Star Wars skins to the game, ahead of a live event on Saturday, December 14.
On Saturday a scene from upcoming movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be premiered via an in-game event in Fortnite.
The “exclusive scene” will be premiered at Risky Reels on Saturday, December 14 at 2pm EST / 7pm BST, including an appearance from director J.J. Abrams.
Epic has made a habit of staging elaborate in-game events to mark the close of Fortnite seasons.
To round off season seven in February, DJ star Marshmello played an exclusive in-game concert which attracted an audience of 10.7 million people, breaking the game’s record concurrent player count.
Fortnite season X’s end of season event saw the game’s map being sucked into a black hole and players left waiting for an entire day to see what would happen next.
The studio said it chose to lengthen the current season “to prepare for all the new holiday-themed updates” it has lined up.
