Boba Fett Fortnite skin available this Christmas
Boba Fett is a character that occupies a large part of every geek’s heart. From his mysterious origins in Star Wars to his brief story in the prequel trilogy, his mystery beginnings are all there. Temuera Morrison from New Zealand, who confusedly played Jango Fett during the prequels, recently made him a guest in The Mandalorian Netflix show.
Boba Fett will also get his own Netflix series, The Book of Boba Fett. It is scheduled to debut December 29, 2021. This brings us back to Fortnite. The addition of Boba Fett skins is definitely a marketing tie in, but not a bad one.
This December, the iconic star wars character from Star Wars will arrive on the island as a skin. According to the Fortnite Twitter account
He can be seen sitting confidently on a throne. It is illustrated in the charmingly cartoonish style Fortnite is known for. Fennec Shand, his associate, is seated to his right. Although it is not known if the female bounty-hunting badass Fennec Shand will join Boba Fett in Fortnite at this time, we can hope that it will. Fortnite currently has over 1000 skins.
Is Boba Fett coming to Fortnite in the future?
The iconic bounty hunter can be purchased on at 7pm ET/4pm PST on 12/24/2021. We are not yet sure how the skin will unlock or if it will only be available to those who want to spend V-bucks. This could be very similar to the Mandalorian’s addition in season 5, when he was part the same battle pass. His armor set could only be obtained by completing a small number of quests. I would love to see similar skill-based bonuses for Boba Fett and Fennec Shand.
