As a leak from earlier tonight suggested it would, Star Wars is crossing over with Fortnite. Right as the clock turned midnight, the Fortnite store updated, and bam, there was a Stormtrooper skin for purchase. That said, that's not the only Star Wars content in the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile battle royale game: one of the series' iconic ships has also popped up in the game's map, and appears to be getting closer, suggesting there's more to this crossover that will be revealed in the coming days.
Beyond this, there's been nothing else of the crossover discovered, however, players are just getting their hands on the freshly updated game, so who knows what will be found come the morning. Again, it's unclear if this is a smaller, one-off crossover or something bigger. You'd assume it's the latter. After all, if you're going to get Star Wars, you might as well go big.
The Imperial army has arrived.

As mentioned above, a Star Wars ship can currently be spotted in the sky, but it's hard to see. In fact, your best bet to see it is in the Battle Bus or via the screenshot below:

As you may know, with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker releasing next month and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releasing onto PS4, Xbox One, and PC today, the opportunity for a Star Wars crossover is ripe, and it's no surprise it's Fortnite -- the crossover king -- that is cashing in.
