What is Fortnite Obi Wan Kenobi Cup? – Start Time, Rules, Rewards and more

Table of Contents

The Fortnite X Star Wars partnership is one of the most significant in-game collaborations ever. With new trilogy characters like Rey, Kylo Ren, and The Mandalorian, as well as OG characters like Boba Fett, Epic has a talent for nailing the aesthetics and never disappoints when it comes to Star Wars. Fortnite has announced the introduction of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit, with players able to win it in the next event of the same name. Epic Games has launched the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup, a duos event in which players may acquire the Star Wars skin as well as other cosmetics for free before they are officially released in the Fortnite shop.

On Thursday, May 26, Epic Games will release the “Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit” in the Fortnite Item Shop. Players may don Ewan McGregor’s bearded Jedi Master’s iconic brown robe and sandy-coloured tunic, as well as the “Dark Essentials Black Bling” set, which contains Obi-Blade Wan’s Pickaxe, a Jedi Interceptor Glider, Obi-Message Wan’s Emote, and the Kenobi, Surrounded Loading Screen.

A message from Epic Games adds: “The road lies before you, but you don’t have to walk it alone in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup. Compete in this Battle Royale Duos tournament on Sunday, May 22, for a chance to earn the Obi-Wan Kenobi Outfit and Desert Essentials Back Bling early. And yes, Lightsabers and E-11 Blaster Rifles will return in this Cup.”

Fortnite Obi Wan Kenobi Cup: Schedule

The Fortnite Obi-Wan Kenobi event will take place on May 22nd. Because the Cup will vary by region and timezone, there is no definite start time. The game’s internal notification system will provide local timings for each area, so log in regularly to prevent missing out. For additional information, head to the Fortnite Compete Tab in-game and navigate through the various events until you find the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup.

Fortnite Obi Wan Kenobi Cup: Format

Players will be allowed to queue for up to ten matches once the tournament begins. They’ll have three hours to finish all of their bouts. Because this is a Duos tournament, and the stakes are high, builds will stay allowed, allowing loopers to play as Obi-Wan for real.
