Fortnite has hotfixed a number of strings to the files, including one iconic Star Wars quote; heavily implying that new cosmetics based on the space opera are coming very soon.
The following strings have been added to the files by Epic:
- "Tactical Tournament Trophy" [Street Fighter]
- "Blanka-Chan reacts to eliminations" [Street Fighter]
- "Multiple swing styles!" [Star Wars]
Although the "Multiple swing styles!" string is seemingly unrelated to Star Wars at first, data-miner Hypex suggests otherwise. The "Multiple swing styles!" string actually replaced text that was previously used for the 2019 Star Wars collaboration; "Fulfill Your Destiny!". Going back to the newly-added "Multiple swing styles!" string, it becomes clear that the text is likely related to a Star Wars Lightsaber Pickaxe as Epic has never released their own axe with "multiple swing styles" before. In addition to this theory, Epic also re-added effects for Lightsabers to the files in v20.10.
As is the case with all leaks, these details may change before the cosmetics are officially revealed. We'll keep you updated.
