The Force returns to Fortnite once again!

Fortnite's v26.20 patch dropped early this morning, swapping out My Hero Academia for Star Wars. The latest Fortnite x Star Wars crossover celebrates Ahsoka's arrival, who is now unlockable via the Battle Pass.

In addition to the Ahsoka cosmetics, The Force has returned, allowing players to become one with The Force and wield lightsabers on the Island. There are some other noteworthy inclusions in this update, so let's cover all of them!

Like the Chapter 4 Season 2 crossover, Fortnite x Star Wars returns in Season 4 with more Force abilities. To access those abilities, locate an Ahsoka Tano hologram around the Island.

After speaking with Ahsoka, you will enter a Rift and re-emerge with Force powers and Lightsaber skills. Those who learn The Force successfully will field Ahsoka's patented white Lightsaber.

You can use The Force to sprint faster, double jump, and push objects and players away. These abilities will be available in-game until patch v26.30.
