The collaboration between Fortnite and The Book of Boba Fett, soon to be released on Disney+, is now official.
Epic Games is open to collaboration, as Boba Fett isn’t the first out-of-franchise – or even Star Wars – character to be included in the game. For example, it recently added the games of Riot Games to its platform, leading to Jinx landing in Fortnite. But the company is looking to take its collaborations to the next level and has once again set its sights on one of the most popular franchises of all time by teaming up with Disney+’s The Book of Boba Fett, a series that expands the Star Wars universe.
The Fortnite folks haven’t revealed much about the collaboration details yet, so we don’t know if Boba Fett will be a playable character or part of an event. What we do know is that the character will make his debut on the island on December 24 as a Christmas gift.
For those of you who may not be familiar with the Star Wars universe, The Book of Boba Fett is a Disney+ series scheduled to premiere on December 29. After the success of The Mandalorian, fans are understandably excited for this spin-off starring one of the franchise’s most iconic characters. So Epic Games has not rested on its laurels and has capitalised on the public’s interest to enhance further the gaming experience of its flagship game, the wildly successful Fortnite.
