Fortnite update adds Darth Vader’s Lightsaber and Super Level Styles

Darth Vader has arrived on the Fortnite island with the release of the latest update.

Starting today, Vader will land at a specific spot each match accompanied by Stormtroopers. Defeat him to pick up Darth Vader’s Lightsaber, which can block incoming damage and be thrown at enemies. Joining Vader’s Lightsaber are the returning E-11 Blasters, which are dropped by Stormtroopers and found in Imperial Chests.

Epic Games has also unlocked Super Level Styles for several Battle Pass outfits. Progress past level 100 to earn the Platinum Rift, Lapis Slurp, and Auric Blaze Styles for Malik, Evie, Adira, Sabina, and Stormfarer.

In addition to the above, players can now add social tags to their profile, such as favorite game mode, gameplay vibes, and preferred competitive events.

“To add social tags to your profile, click on your profile icon in the Sidebar, then select +Add Tag. Once you have at least one social tag, you’ll be able to send party invites to and receive party invites from players with matching tags (who are in your server region),” Epic explains. “These party invites can be sent from the new Looking For Party section in the Sidebar. This section is Fortnite’s very own LFG (looking for group) feature where you can party up based on interest and region.”

Finally, adjustments have been made to Reality Saplings. Read the full patch notes here.
