Boba Fett in Fortnite

Going by his real name, Bob Feet, the iconic character will launch in Fortnite as a new skin. He will make an appearance on 24th December, 4 PM PT. Adding on, Boba Fett might not be the sole character to be added. Inferring from the Tweet posted by Epic Games, Fett’s companion Fennec Shand will be present. However, it is still unclear whether or not she will also be available as a skin, something else, or whether or not she will even be present at all.

Shand is visible alongside a potential Emote of the Mandalorian symbol of a Mythosaur. There is a possibility that the Tusken Raider’s Gaffi Stick will feature in the shop as a Pickaxe.

The recent addition of The Mandalorian in the game is no coincidence. It is a well-known fact that Fortnite is a game marketed to a younger audience. This coincides with the promotional campaign for The Mandalorian series on Disney +.

There has been no information on the prices or the criteria required to unlock this character. Regardless, it seems that the character will be immensely popular. He is bound to attract the attention of players and will definitely create hype for the already juggernaut of a show.
