Spider-Verse skins revealed for Marvel Zero War Fortnite cover


The Sith Lord’s main weapon and abilities may be coming to Fortnite in today’s update. The Loopers have been waiting to wield the red lightsaber and use Force abilities ever since they were introduced in the Season 3 trailer.

The Fortnite and Star Wars collaborations are extremely popular with the community as they have included an introduction to various skins, cosmetics from the Item Shop, and legendary in-game weapons in the form of Lightsabers and Mando’s Rifle. Several cosmetics were absolutely perfect in line with the movies or Disney+ shows, while some were dissed by the fanbase.

However, the relationship between the two companies continues to grow as two characters from the OG Star Wars movies, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader were introduced with the release of the Disney+ series, Obi Wan Kenobi. Players jumped into the game on Star Wars Day last month and experienced the mythical lightsabers in-game again, with the addition of Obi-Wan’s lightsaber added to the game.

While with Vader’s arrival in the Season 3 Battle Pass, players saw his single-bladed red lightsaber in the trailer, alongside his Force abilities that have them hyped ever since. However, it’s been almost two weeks since the launch of the new Fortnite season and fans haven’t seen them both yet. It turns out that a recent leak about the next update might just bring them some joy.

Fortnite teaser hints at upcoming Darth Vader lightsaber and Force abilities

Earlier today, the official Fortnite Twitter account tweeted about the upcoming v21.10 update mentioning the downtime which will start at 4am ET and matchmaking will be disabled 30 minutes before the same. Plus, they wrote an interesting line that says, “Awesome. More impressive.”

This line is said by the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back to Luke Skywalker when the two engage in a Death Star showdown. Moreover, while uttering this line, he holds his red lightsaber and remains amazed at how Luke claims the heights over him.

Leakers are speculating that either Vader will be added as an in-game Boss NPC, with his Star Destroyer as a POI, or will play a major role in the update one way or another. It seems more or less possible that he will be added as a boss, who can be eliminated to claim the mythical red lightsaber.

However, players are still speculating if this aligns with Obi-Wan’s Disney+ series finale where fans will get to see a final showdown or more likely, “A Duel of Fates” between the two Star Wars legends. More will be unpacked as soon as v21.10 update drop today.
