Following a short appearance earlier this month on Star Wars Day, Obi-Wan Kenobi will be available to purchase in the Fortnite Item Shop on Thursday, May 26th at 8 p.m. ET. The day before the first two episodes arrive on Disney+.
In addition to the new skin, there will be Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup, a battle-royale duos tournament that will take place on Sunday, May 22nd, giving players a chance to earn the Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit and Desert Essentials Back Bling pack early.
Along with the Obi-Wan Kenobi outfit comes with his Desert Essentials Back Bling, an assortment of tools for living an isolated existence on a remote desert planet. Other Kenobi items include a blade pickaxe, a Jedi Interceptor fighter and a message emote.
These will be available individually or as part of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Bundle.
