Fortnite gets a Star Wars skin

You can get it through the new Jedi game

two stormtroopers look at each other Epic Games

Fortnite has once again paired up with one of the biggest media properties on earth for a cool new cosmetic. You can dress up as a stormtrooper now, and there are two ways to do it. One, you can simply purchase the skin from the item shop. Or two, you can buy Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

More specifically, you can buy Jedi: Fallen Order on the Epic Games Store to unlock the iconic suit in Fortnite. It’s not a bad deal when you consider that the latest Star Wars game is actually pretty good. Our review of Jedi: Fallen Order states that it is a single-player exploration game that shakes up what we typically expect from Star Wars titles. There are some flaws, but on the whole, the Respawn-developed game is an enjoyable experience that manages to have actual stakes, despite being a prequel to the most recent movies.

This collaboration shouldn’t come as a shock — previously, Fortnite teamed up with Marvel for some skins and new modes. Disney, of course, owns both Marvel and Star Wars, and if Fortnite is family-friendly enough for one, it’s good for both. Epic Games has made a very good play for getting people to download the Epic Games Store.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated that you had to buy Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to unlock the Imperial Stormtrooper skin in Fortnite. However, you can also just purchase the skin separately.
