Now it looks like Fortnite is once again ready to bring the epic crossover for its players. According to one of the trusted scoopers, Shiina on Twitter, Star Wars is coming to the battle royale sooner than expected. Because Star Wars Day, aka May 4th, falls this week. So it makes total sense for the event to begin at the same time as well.

Going by Shiina’s leaked information, the Lightsabers are returning on Tuesday in Fortnite with the possible “Star Wars-Lightning Cup”.

But the newest update has now reportedly confirmed that the surprise is almost here now for all the Fortnite and Star Wars lovers.
