Fortnite x Star Wars is happening. That's right, Fortnite is getting another massive crossover, this time with Star Wars, which is likely to promote Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn Entertainment's new single-player Star Wars game hitting PS4, Xbox One, and PC in just one hour. And of course, it's probably also to promote the upcoming movie. That said, it's currently unclear how robust the crossover is. In fact, it may not be much more than a single skin.
Word of the crossover comes way of an in-game store leak which reveals that a Stormtrooper skin is being added to the game, likely when the store updates in a matter of minutes. At the moment, this -- and a ship -- are all that have been discovered of the crossover, suggesting this is it, at least for now. Usually, when a larger crossover with a lot of content is near, leaks via game files of said crossover flood the Internet. However, there haven't been any pointing towards a Star Wars crossover prior to this leak.

As mentioned above, the only other piece of Star Wars content found in the files is of a ship, which will apparently show up on the map. Now, unlike the skin, this suggests the crossover may have some meat to it, but for now, it's hard to know, especially considering these two things are (seemingly) the only Star Wars-related content hidden in the files
