Beginning Thursday, 26th May 2022, at 8 pm ET (1 am GMT on 27th May) the Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop alongside an Obi-Wan Back Bling, Pickaxe, Glider, and more.

The timing certainly makes sense for Epic Games to release the content on the evening of the 26th, as on 27th May Disney will release their brand new series Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Here's what's included in the Fortnite Obi-Wan Kenobi drop on 27th May:

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit
  • Desert Essentials Back Bling (included with the Outfit): An assortment of tools perfect for living an isolated existence on a remote desert planet.
  • Obi-Wan’s Blade Pickaxe: An ol’ reliable partner.
  • Jedi Interceptor Glider: Your new fighter has arrived.
  • Obi-Wan’s Message Emote: An important transmission…
  • Kenobi, Surrounded Loading Screen (available via purchase of the bundle)

There is no word yet on the pricing of the Obi-Wan Kenobi content, but expect both bundle and individual purchasing options. The bundle should cost anywhere between 1,000-2,500 V-Bucks and individual item pricing will vary based on that.
