The popular battle royale game, Fortnite, has recently got another update in time for its weekly challenges, as well as a few other extras that will definitely make the fans happy, including three new Star Wars skins. Every Thursday of each week, Epic Games releases a new Mission for Fortnite players to complete, and this week, a set of new challenges await fans. According to Fortnite Insider, there are two parts to this week's Mission named "Stretch Goals," including a set of normal challenges and a prestige version, with the latter surely taking more time to complete. Below are the seven normal challenges each Fortnite player will have to finish: Deal damage to opponents (5,000) Achieve Shotgun or AR Specialist by dealing damage with either a Shotgun or an Assault Rifle (10) Achieve Pistol or SMG Specialist by dealing damage with either a Pistol or SMG (10) Achieve Sniper or Explosive Specialist by dealing damage with either Snipers or Explosives (10) Nonetheless, it is still unclear whether the prestige challenges will offer a better reward or something more than the XPs, although Epic Games tend to release the challenges for the players to acquire enough XPs in order to unlock more in-game content when the season ends. Arrival of New Star Wars Skins Meanwhile, the latest Fortnite patch didn't just bring the new Stretch Goals Mission, but also three new skins.
But they aren't just new skins—these are Star Wars skin, featuring a Rey, Finn, and Sith Trooper skins that are now available in the Item Shop. Best of all, a scene from the upcoming film, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, will premiere in the game, specifically at the Risky Reels drive-in on Saturday, Dec. 14, as reported by PCGamer. This should be a great way to soothe the broken hearts of many Fortnite fans after Epic Games has debunked the latest rumor surrounding the arrival of an annual battle pass that has circulated the internet a while ago. Fornite Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker crossover is here With Party Hub, you can now preview what's new in the Item Shop before loading into the game Fortnite has a new crossover - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Gamers can now receive new Star Wars-themed costumes, items, and emotes which have been added to the item shop.
Epic Games teased an upcoming live Fortnite event in the blog post announcing that Chapter 2, Season 1 had been extended. Players then discovered a teaser video playing at Risky Reels. The teaser stated that the Fortnite Star Wars event will take place on Saturday, 14th December at 2pm ET. The event will premiere an exclusive, never-before-seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker footage. However, leaks for the Fortnite Star Wars event suggests that there'll be much more to the event than just an exclusive clip. Dataminers have stated that Star Wars related objects will crash onto the map, and players might be able to use lightsabers during the event amongst other things. There are also encrypted Fortnite Star Wars challenges and rewards that should be available after the event concludes. Fortnite TIE Whisper Glider PlayStation accidentally leaked that players will receive a free Star Wars glider, Tie Whisper for free. Later during the day it was leaked, Epic Games announced that players will receive the TIE Whisper glider for free. In order to get the Tie Whisper glider, players simply need to attend the Star Wars in-game event. If there are issues where players can't get into a game in order to view and experience the Fortnite Star Wars event, it's more than likely that Epic Games will provide everyone with the TIE Whisper glider, but hopefully Epic have ironed out the issues that have plagued previous in-game events. The TIE Whisper glider will likely be available as soon as the event ends, or be provided to everyone within the next couple of days. If there's any updates from Epic regarding rewarding the Star Wars glider, we'll update this article. Here's some footage of the TIE Whisper glider: Live At Risky Reels – TIE Whisper Glider
