In celebration of the next Disney Plus series, fortnite will get an Obi-Wan skin which will be added in late May 2022. The game’s skin has been widely rumored for a while now and was even teased during a Star Wars trailer on May 4 earlier this month -this. They also added the Obi-Wan cup which allowed players to access the skin earlier, and even if the tournament is over, you can still pick up the outfit from the item shop. But when will Obi-Wan cosmetics be added? Here’s what you need to know about including the beloved Star Wars character in fortnite.
When is the fortnite Obi-Wan Kenobi skin release date?
Obi-Wan’s skin and all accompanying cosmetics will be added to the fortnite Shop at May 26, 2022, 8 p.m. EST. It’s just in time for the new Obi-Wan Disney Plus series, which premieres Friday, May 27, focusing on the titular character.
You could previously unlock the skin through the Obi-Wan Cup, but the tournament has since ended.

As is usually the case with major licensed characters like this, Obi-Wan will come with a character skin, along with a handful of additional cosmetics. Epic Games has yet to reveal pricing for the items, but there will likely be several options, including an all-inclusive bundle for around 2,600 V-bucks. The Obi-Wan outfit will likely cost around 1,500 V-bucks for those looking to get the skin individually.
To earn V-bucks, you’ll need to purchase them with real money or unlock them by upgrading the battle pass.
Here are all the Obi-Wan cosmetics you can expect:
- Obi Wan Kenobi – Outfit
- Desert Essentials — Back Bling
- Obi-Wan’s Blade — Pickaxe
- Jedi Interceptor — Glider
- Message from Obi-Wan — Emote
- Kenobi, surrounded — Loading screen
Note that these items will only be available for a limited time, so it’s recommended to grab them while you can as it’s unclear if/when Obi-Wan will return to the Item Shop. Typically, fortnite celebrates Star Wars on May 4 each year, so it’s possible that Obi-Wan could return in 2023, but that hasn’t been confirmed. For now, it’s best to grab Obi-Wan cosmetics ASAP.
When is the fortnite Obi-Wan Cup start time?
The Obi-Wan Cup started on May 22, 2022, but has since ended, meaning you’ll need to access the skin and other cosmetics through the Item Shop when they launch on May 26.
The Cup focused on Duos matches that allowed you access to Obi-Wan cosmetics before the character’s release, provided your team ranked high enough in the tournament. In North America, you had to be in the top 750 on the east coast and top 250 on the west coast to qualify for the skin. You will now need to spend your hard-earned V-bucks to acquire the skin and cosmetics.
