Fortnite will make the long wait for the next Star Wars a little easier.
Fans have noticed that posters on the Battle Royale map of the game now dwarf a December 14 event Pamper the players with an "exclusive scene premiere" Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker . There will even be an appearance (presumably an introduction) by director J.J. Abrams.
According to the posters, the event will start on December 14th at 1:30 pm. ET, with the "show" from 14:00 ET. It will take place in Risky Reels, a run-down drive-in movie theater west of Frenzy Farm. You can find the poster in different places on the map.
If you're new to Fortnite but suddenly have the urge to go into Star Wars, you're glad to know that the event is recorded with certainty and widely circulated on social media. But if you want to see it for yourself, it's probably not a bad idea to familiarize yourself with the map in advance.
You can safely visit Risky Reels by downloading Fortnite Creative's mode, which lets you play around freely on the Battle Royale map. When you load into the hub location of the mode, find the portal for Frenzy Farm and go inside. They should spawn high above this location in the sky, and Risky Reels is clearly visible only a short distance west.
I'll probably need to get into a real Battle Royale match if you want to see the scene yourself, but do not be scared. If the Star Wars event is a similar event to other Fortnite events in the game, the fight is likely to be disabled at 13:30. ET start time.
This is just the latest development in an ongoing Fortnite x Star Wars partnership. In November, an Imperial Star Destroyer appeared in the sky above the map, and a Stormtrooper skin was added to the game.
You get this skin for free if you download the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from the Epic Games Store. Otherwise, you can buy it in the game at Fortnite Store.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20.
