I’m back with news about Obi Wan Kenobi, certainly very unsurprising but still incredible since it is the best Jedi of all time. While the series on Disney+ will be broadcast from May 27, 2022, Fortnite still takes advantage of its partnership with Disney to offer a special skin of Ewan McGregor in person. The latter will join the Battle Royale a day before the broadcast, on May 26. Of course, lightsabers have already been back in the game since Star Wars Day, May 4, along with a few skins, but Obi Wan’s was highly anticipated. It goes without saying that if you follow Fortnite news a bit, this is in no way a surprise since the emblematic Jedi saber had already been teased beforehand.
Fortnite: It will be possible to get the Obi Wan Kenobi skin for free
The Obi Wan Kenobi set will therefore join the shop from May 26, 2022 on Fortnite but there is a way to get it for free. Indeed, if you participate in the Obi Wan Kenobi Cup from this Sunday, May 22, you can try to place yourself among the best and get this magnificent skin in advance. Scores, regional time slots and other rules are available on the Epic Games official Fortnite blog.
The Obi-Wan KenobiTM outfit will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop on Friday, May 27 at 2:00 a.m. CET along with a back bling, pickaxe, glider, and more! Fans can also pick up Obi-Wan’s Pickaxe Blade, which is actually a blade and not a lightsaber, the Jedi Interceptor glider, and the Message from Obi-Wan emote.
Those who choose the Obi-Wan Kenobi Bundle (which includes all of the above) will also receive the “Kenobi, Surrounded” loading screen. In the meantime, you can still enjoy cosmetics Robocop.
