May the force (and 4th) be with you! Here is what Fortnite’s robust Star Wars update has to offer!

Fortnite x Star Wars has officially returned just in time for Star Wars Day. Last week, Epic Games confirmed that Anakin Skywalker from the prequel series and recent Obi-Wan Kenobi show would join the roster. However, Fortnite patch v24.30 has much more in store. 

Today’s patch includes a Darth Maul and Padmè Amidala skin, new Force abilities, Quests, and more. Here’s a detailed breakdown of everything you can expect.

Anakin Skywalker and his once-beloved wife and (spoiler alert) mother of Luke and Leila Skywalker, Padmè Amidala, are now available to purchase via Fortnite’s item shop. You can also grab the 501st Battalion Trooper and 212th Battalion Trooper, both taken straight from the Clone Wars.

Those who purchase Padmè Amidala will receive the Geonosis Combat alternate style, one you may recognize from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
That’s not all, either. Darth Maul is ready and willing to join your Fortnite locker, but it will take some work.

  • Begun the Clone Wars Have — May 7 at 9 a.m. ET
  • Fall of the Republic Quests — May 12 at 9 a.m. ET

Reality Augments have received a sizable adjustment in Fortnite patch v24.30. Firstly, the following Augments have returned; First Assault, Bush Warrior, Forecast, and Mythic Munition.

Additionally, Epic Games has added these four new Reality Augments into the mix:

  • Desperate Reload: Your Pistols will reload faster when reloaded with an empty clip.
  • Steady Hands: Your Marksman Rifles will have reduced recoil.
  • SMG Sign Off: The last three bullets of your SMG magazines will deal bonus damage.

Balance Changes in Fortnite v24.30

  • Storm Circles 6 and 7 now move further into the Storm as the safe zone shrinks. Circles 8 and 9 now begin moving earlier and travel further. Storm Circle 12 takes longer to close.
  • We've vaulted the Game Time Reality Augment and reduced the probability of Chug Splash loot.
  • We will continue to monitor the impact of healing items and matches that end in "heal-offs."

Bug Fixes in Fortnite v24.30

  • Fixed an issue where large rocks on the Island were not providing as many materials as intended when harvested.
  • Fixed an issue where using ODM Gear would sometimes cause a player to fly even if no longer using the item.
  • Back Blings no longer appear detached on the Highwire Outfit.
  • Fixed an issue where the Starter Island timer did not go down properly.
