Fortnite will premier an exclusive Star Wars clip in-game
Fortnite will preview an exclusive clip of the upcoming Star Wars film in its game.
The video will be viewable via the drive-in theatre, which is part of the Fortnite gameplay island.
The game has teamed up with Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, to show the clip on December 18. The game will also boast limited edition skins and items meant to promote the film.
The announcement was made in the game of Fortnite via virtual posters. The event will also feature director, co-writer and producer J.J. Abrams (although it is not known what form that will take).
Players are invited to attend the theatre known as Risky Reels on December 14, at 2:30 PM UAE time. The scene will then be shown 30 minutes later, on the hour at 3:00 PM.
Fortnite boasts more than 250 million regular players and has become a bit of a cultural icon. Recently, it has held several in-game events such as the world’s first virtual music festival and held events based around real-world sporting events such as the World Cup and Olympics.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker marks the end of the long-running franchise’s sequel trilogy, which began with The Force Awakens.
