The iconic movie villain known as Darth Vader returns to Fortnite shortly thanks to the “Find the Force” missions, challenging players to battle him in the coming weeks. The collaboration between Fortnite and Star Wars is not new; In the past, the most famous characters in the series have appeared as skins or during special events, and players have had the opportunity to use lightsabers as melee weapons. These collaborations have been very successful, and now the two franchises have teamed up again to celebrate May 4th with an awesome Star Wars Battle Pass in Fortnite.
To finish the new Battle Pass, players will need to complete the “Find the Force” missions and earn Galactic Reputation. If you manage to do it before the event ends, you will be able to unlock the Clone Trooper skin for free. In addition, those who pay the 1000 V-Bucks for the mini premium pass will receive four Star Wars skins, including Sith Lord Darth Maul. It is important to note that not all missions will be available at the start of the event, but will be added gradually over the three weeks of the event, until May 23.
The Darth Vader Boss NPC is set to return around May 13th and will be grouped with 501st Troopers.

Darth Vader returns to Fortnite as a challenge for players
A well-known member of the community, iFireMonkey, you have already inspected the game files and found information about the remaining quests. According to his findings, around May 13, Darth Vader will appear again on the Battle Royale island. The Fall of the Republic quest from the Find the Force quest set will require players to help defeat Darth Vader. If players want to complete all missions and receive the free loading screen and more Star Wars rewards, they will need to complete this task.
At last year’s event, some fans felt that the fight against the villain was unexciting and that his power was not properly reflected in the game. However, with the Star Wars event leaks, the arrival was mentioned lightsabers and Force powers, with the latter feature being a great novelty, which promises to add more dynamism to the game. Despite this, the event has already been a resounding success among Fortnite fans.
