The Sith Lord’s prime weapon and abilities might be arriving to Fortnite in Today’s update. Loopers have been waiting to wield the signature Red Lightsaber and use the Force abilities ever since they were shown in Season 3 trailer.
Fortnite and Star Wars collaborations are extremely loved by the community as they have included introduction to various skins, item shop cosmetics and in-game Mythic weapons in the form of Lightsabers and Mando’s Rifle. Several cosmetics were absolutely spot on in accordance to the movies or Disney+ shows, while some were dissed on by the fan base.
However, the relationship between the two companies continues to grow as two characters from the OG Star Wars films, 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 Mythic lightsabers in-game once again, with the addition of Obi-Wan’s lightsaber being added to the game.
Whereas with the arrival of Vader in the Season 3 Battle Pass, players saw his single blade red lightsaber in the trailer, alongside his force abilities which has them hyped ever since. However, it has been almost two weeks since the launch of the new Fortnite season and fans are yet to see both of them. Turns out, a recent leak about the upcoming update, might just bring them joy.
Fortnite teaser hints at Darth Vader’s Lightsaber and Force abilities coming soon
Earlier today, Fortnite’s official status Twitter handle tweeted about the upcoming v21.10 update, mentioning the downtime that will begin at 4 am E.T. and matchmaking will be disabled 30 mins prior to the same. Moreover, they wrote an interesting line that says, “Impressive. Most Impressive.”
This line is said by the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back to Luke Skywalker when the both of them engage in a showdown at the Death Star. Moreover, while saying this line, he holds his red lightsaber and stands amazed how Luke claims the high ground on him.
Leakers speculate that either Vader will be added as an NPC Boss in-game, with his Star Destroyer as a POI or will play a major role in the update in some way. More or less the possibility seems of him being added as a boss, who can be eliminated to claim the Mythic Red Lightsaber.
However, players still speculate if this is aligned with the finale of Obi-Wan’s Disney+ series 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 unwrapped soon as update v21.10 drops today.
