Star Wars x Fortnite: Find The Force Celebrates the Prequel Trilogy in Style
The new Star Wars x Fortnite collaboration celebrates the Prequels with new Anakin, Padmé, Maul, and Clone Trooper skins
At long last, the latest Star Wars x Fortnite collaboration has been revealed. And Prequel Trilogy fans will eat well for weeks to come. That’s because the first releases in the new event consist of new skins for Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala, and a selection of Clone Troopers. Titled “Find The Force,” the event also boasts the addition of new Force Mythic abilities including a Force Push, Force Pull, and Sith Lord environmental damage.
What’s more, the new event has an added bonus in the form of Find the Force Quests. Upon completion, these quests will unlock all-new cosmetics and bonus features to make May 4th a day to remember. And those willing to part with an extra 1,000 V-Bucks can opt into the Premium Reward Track that grants even greater rewards. Among the tantalizing bonuses are a new playable Darth Maul skin and his iconic Sith Infiltrator glider. But don’t take my word for it. Grab your lightsaber and join me as we explore what’s available and how you can unlock it all!
FIND THE FORCE & NEW ABILITIES
Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Maul await you on the Island in hologram form during Find the Force. If you accept their offer to train you, you’ll jump into a rift… then return wielding a lightsaber and new Force abilities. These Force abilities can be used while wielding your lightsaber, which’ll remain in your inventory until you drop it, get eliminated, or the match ends.
Force training will give you the ability to sprint faster and double jump while your lightsaber is equipped, regardless of which trainer you chose.
Accept Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Jedi training and learn to use the Force to push objects and players away.
If you accept Anakin Skywalker’s Jedi training, you’ll learn to use the Force to pull objects and players towards you.
Seeking Sith training instead? Upon accepting Darth Maul’s training, you’ll learn to use the Force to lift objects from the environment and hurl them at players.
Additionally, the lightsaber you get from Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, or Darth Maul can be used as a melee weapon! From Obi-Wan Kenobi you’ll receive a green Jedi Padawan Lightsaber, and from Anakin Skywalker you’ll receive a blue one. From Darth Maul you’ll receive a red Sith Apprentice Lightsaber.
DC-15 BLASTERS & CHESTS
There are no weapons on the Island more fitting for the Clone Trooper Outfit than the DC-15 Blaster. Obtainable from Republic Chests, this Assault Rifle has high accuracy and excels at medium-to-long range combat.
FIND THE FORCE QUESTS
Complete Find the Force Quests to earn Galactic Reputation. You can complete them by doing things to enhance your Jedi or Sith skills, like getting trained by Jedi or Sith trainers, dealing damage with lightsabers, and searching Republic Chests. Completing Find the Force Quests will increase your Galactic Reputation, and the more Galactic Reputation you get, the more rewards you’ll unlock!
Navigate to the Galactic Reputation tab in the Lobby to keep track of your Galactic Reputation and remaining rewards. When clicking this tab, you’ll notice the free reward track and the Premium Reward Track upgrade which is unlockable for a fee. The free reward track contains 11 unlockable rewards, including the Clone Trooper Outfit as the final reward.
If you purchase the Premium Reward Track upgrade, you’ll unlock extra rewards as you unlock rewards in the free reward track (without having to complete additional Quests). The Premium Reward Track upgrade can be purchased for 1,000 V-Bucks and contains 11 unlockable rewards, including the Darth Maul Outfit as the final reward.
This track upgrade also contains the unlockable Wolf Pack Trooper Outfit and Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper Outfit. Upon purchasing the Premium Reward Track upgrade, you’ll automatically receive the Coruscant Guard Outfit.
THE “FIND THE FORCE” QUEST TRILOGY
Just as Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith are a trilogy, so are the Find the Force Quests. The Find the Force Quests are separated into three main sets with certain Quests associated with each one. If you complete twelve Quests in a set, you’ll earn a Sith Holocron. Earn three Sith Holocrons to unlock the Sith Infiltrator Glider!
Each set of Find the Force Quests will go live sequentially and be available until May 23 at 9 AM ET:
- “The Force Within” Quests are live starting now.
- “Begun the Clone Wars Have” Quests go live May 7 at 9 AM ET.
- “Fall of the Republic” Quests go live May 12 at 9 AM ET.
There’s an epilogue to this Quest trilogy! Still need to earn Galactic Reputation for unlocking Find the Force rewards? “The First Galactic Empire” Quests — which go live May 17 at 9 AM ET — will help!
ANAKIN SKYWALKER, PADMÉ AMIDALA, AND MORE IN THE ITEM SHOP
For Find the Force, four new Outfits are available in the Item Shop starting now!
501ST TROOPER AND 212TH BATTALION TROOPER
In addition to these amazing skins and gun wraps, a bonus wrap designed for the Coruscant Guard Clone Trooper has been added. However, those hoping to unlock it will have to complete a Discord quest. Read more about Coruscant’s Pride Wrap challenge here.
May 4th was always going to be a monumental day, but Fortnite and Lucasfilm just delivered an update worthy of the Force. As a Fortnite player, I am blown away by the quality of these new skins. Anakin and Padmé are exquisite. You can clearly see that Epic Games has invested heavily in their accuracy – and the fruits of their labors are there for all to see. Moreover, the Clone Trooper skins are exceptional too. From the 501st Batallion to Obi-Wan’s 212th, and even Commander Wolffe’s Wolf Pack, these Clones have been highly sought after for some time. And I for one, cannot wait to deploy along the Battlefront and earn some juicy rewards.
But the three-week wait for Darth Maul will be a test of endurance, one that many fans will find frustrating. But running around as a Clone, Anakin, or Padmé will more than makeup for it. Now, if you’ll excuse me, let’s get a move on – we have a battle to win here!
Will you be adding these incredible skins to your collection? Sound off below. Until then, I’ll see you on the map!
