Moments ago, Fortnite's highly-anticipated event Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker went down. It featured a classic Star Wars battle, JJ Abrams as a Fortnite character, The Game Awards creator and host Geoff Keighley, lightsaber battles, cringy jokes, emotes, and a brand new look at Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker. If you missed the event, or simply want to watch it again, you can do that right here. That said, shortly after the event concluded, a new skin for the game leaked, and it's none other than Kylo Ren. Best yet, it features a cape.
The skin isn't live in the store yet, but it will presumably go up later tonight. You can check it out for yourself below, courtesy of Fortnite leaker HypeX. It's important to note Epic Games hasn't confirmed this is an official skin, but it's already in the game's files and poised to be added to the store, so it's obviously legit.

It's also worth pointing out that Fortnite is currently having some server issues. So, if you aren't able to log in, that's why. That said, the servers should be fixed come the store update later tonight.
