Lego Fortnite Star Wars collab – when you can get it and everything it includes

Fortnire’s biggest collaboration of the year is almost upon us. Ever since somebody decided that May the 4th sounded fractionally like May the Force, each year on this most hallowed of dates big brands crowbar Star Wars content into their everyday social output, just for you.

Fortnite and Star Wars are the perfect combo really, the chance to play iconic games in your favorite Battle Royale has certainly not been missed by those sitting in Epic’s boardrooms, but this year they, and indeed we, get some new toys to play with.

This is the first year of Lego Fortnite’s existence and it too will get a Star Wars-themed makeover, and knowing just how popular Lego Star Wars games have been previously, well this is going to be massive.

Here we are taking a close look at what will be with you on May 4th.

Lego Fortnite Star Wars release date

May 3rd be with you – er, that’s when update 29.40 drops, and all flavors of Fornite, Lego, vanilla, Rocket Racing, and Festival are getting a makeover Star Wars style.

Here we are concentrating on Lego so let’s crack on.

Rebel Adventure Battle Pass

The Lego Pass: Rebel Adventure will actually be available to work your way through until July 23rd, so don’t feel as though you have to dash through it and it contains lots of cosmetics and build kits.

As ever there are free and premium tracks and you unlock the goodies by earning more Studs by playing. The free reward track has ten Decor Bundles and features the Mos Eisley Marketplace Build as the final reward.

The Premium Reward Track costs 1,400 V-Bucks and has 11 more rewards you can unlock while unlocking rewards from the free reward track.

This track has four Decor Bundles and seven Builds, including the Dusty Durrr Burger Build as the final reward.

Wookie of the year
