Fortnite Unveils Highly Anticipated Star Wars Event

In this post:

  • A huge Star Wars event hits Fortnite on May 4th via early update 29.40 on May 3rd.
  • You can purchase new Star Wars items and cosmetics immediately, but quests are delayed until 9 AM ET on May 4th.
  • Expect long waits and queues after updates due to high anticipation.

Fortnite has focused on its collaboration with Avatar: Meeting the audience’s expectations that coincide with the perspective in the previous part of the movie The Last Airbender regarding Chapter 5 of Season 2. However, it is the universal Star Wars celebration that is being observed on May 4th that is the main concern now, and this is a tradition for Epic Games to do that. Even though the Elements Pass is the most recent thing that was released many days before the Star Wars event, Fortnite decided to mark the occasion by bringing out a major collab, that is, you guessed it right! It’s an event pass. 

Star Wars invades Fortnite

The magnitude of the crossover event is huge, more than most people expected; when you ask most fans, they probably would be anxious for it to go live. Whether a player is a beginner or an absolute pro, this article will tune most of them up for the upcoming Star Wars Event. Version 29.40 will be the update to add the newest event to Fortnite. 

There is no usual thing in this case, though, as the usual day for patch release is Tuesday, and now we have patch v29.40 released on Friday instead. That means longer playing time for finishing the Elements Pass before the coming Monday. Next, I will deploy it on May 4th, also commonly referred to as this day, with the name Star Wars Day, by the community of its fans. On Friday, May 3, as the old downtime ends, v29.40 will be out, but until then, fans have to just sit tight.

Early update, delayed quests

The patching of v29.40 will take place at 3 AM ET (BST). Nonetheless, matchmaking will be disconnected approximately 30 minutes before game time to escape receiving evictions in the last moments of playing. Thus, gamers should expect the availability of all Avatar quests until about 1.30 AM ET, when the Appa glider located in Fortnite may be unlocked. 

The time that the Star Wars event would begin is after the conclusion of downtime and subsequent rebooting of servers. Furthermore, since the player will be experienced with brand new content- the gamers will need to wait longer than usual to start Fortnite, and some of them might experience a queue when signing in. However, since it’ll probably be something like 6 or 7 AM by the time the fans can have their first matchup with Star Wars, they won’t be able to sleep anymore. You should understand that not all the goods will be readily accessible.

Epic Games’s official blog states that the Item Shop shall be updated, replacing some items with Star Wars ones; however, Quest will only come in handy after the update is released at 9 AM ET. This signifies that in LEGO Fortnite, gamers have the chance to interact with Star Wars content straight away: Battle Royale game items and numerous cosmetics will be there for them as soon as the game is released, but they won’t be able to develop any quests or progress until subsequent versions are released.
