Fortnite update 24.30 is almost here, and it looks like it’s going to be a big one with plenty of Star Wars content to enjoy. Here are the early patch notes.
With Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 now well underway, it’s time for a big mid-season content drop to keep loopers busy – and it’s great news for Star Wars fans.
Coinciding with May the Fourth (also known as Star Wars Day) as well as the new Star Wars Jedi: Survivor game, the v24.30 update will feature skins and returning weapons from a galaxy far, far away.
Here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s v24.30 update so far.

Fortnite update 24.30 early patch notes
Star Wars crossover event
Just like clockwork, Fortnite is celebrating Star Wars Day once again. Epic Games confirmed this in a tweet on April 27, which featured a first look at an Anakin Skywalker skin that will be available in-game.
No other content has been revealed as part of the crossover, but if past events are anything to go by, we can probably expect to see Star Wars skins, weapons, and maybe even a boss fight on the map.
New Star Wars skins
While the Anakin Skywalker skin is the only one that’s been confirmed so far, Fortnite leakers have teased that there could actually be a total of four skins arriving as part of the event. Any guesses who?
Star Wars weapons return
Fortnite leaker Shiina has reported that Star Wars weapons including Lightsabers and the E-11 blasters will make a return to the loot pool for the duration of this Star Wars crossover event.
A Jedi vs Sith battle?
In a tweet shared on April 30, the official Fortnite account asked followers which side they’ll choose: Jedi or Sith. We don’t know what this means yet, but it could be a hint at some kind of battle taking place.
Of course, the tweet could also just be a reference to the different skins or weapons that will be available, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for something more significant in terms of gameplay.
