A clip from a recent Epic Games showcase has players believing Darth Vader is coming to Fortnite, but are the rumors true?
During a State of Unreal Showcase on April 5, 2022, a clip was shown of a Fortnite developer working on in-game content. But a list of files on another desktop has caught the Fortnite community’s eye.
The folders were named after several assets already in Fortnite. Characters such as Madcap, Pyro, Loki, and LeBron. But there were other folders named after content that hadn’t been released.
While the folder names are blurry, squinting leakers have deciphered the digital letters. These include Doom, Family Guy, and a folder titled C3S3_VADER.
Darth Vader folder spotted during showcase
Leakers were quick to share the screenshot and speculate the arrival of Darth Vader. “DARTH VADER MIGHT BECOME A SKIN IN SEASON 3”, Shiina tweeted as soon as the news broke.
It’s even more convincing since the folder is so cryptically named. It shares the same naming scheme as several of Fortnite’s in-game assets: C3S3_VADER.
Is Darth Vader coming to Fortnite?
Right now, we don’t know. It is entirely possible as Epic Games has a good relationship with Disney. As well, there have already been several Star Wars skins added to the game already.\
That being said, all of the Star Wars skins in-game are from Episodes 7-9. Darth Vader would be the first Star Wars skin to reference the original trilogy, let alone the first six movies.
Only time will tell whether the leak is real or if Epic Games is just teasing us.

Fortnite x Assassin’s Creed: Ezio and Eivor skins, release date, price
Two iconic Assassin’s Creed characters are coming to Fortnite soon, and here is everything we know about the Ezio and Eivor skins.
Fortnite is crossing over with Assassin’s Creed to add two iconic characters from the franchise to the Battle Royale roster.
Assassin’s Creed is not only one of Ubisoft’s most iconic franchises, but is one of the most widely recognized series in all of gaming. And since Fortnite adds Gaming Legends to its roster, it only makes sense that Assassin’s Creed would make the cut.
Ezio Auditore was found in the game’s files at the end of Chapter 3 Season 1, but was never officially released. Now, a second character from the Assassin’s Creed universe has been revealed along with a release date.
Here is everything we know about the Ezio and Eivor skins coming to Fortnite.
Fortnite Ezio Auditore and Eivor Varinsdottir cosmetics
Ezio is likely the most well-known Assassin’s Creed character as he appeared in Assassin’s Creed II, Revelations, and Brotherhood. Eivor, on the other hand, is one of the leading characters in the latest installment, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The Ezio Outfit comes with his Hidden Blade pickaxe and a built-in emote. He also has an unhooded bonus style.
Eivor also comes with a hooded style variant, as well as a slew of cosmetics. The base skin includes the Eivor Shield Back Bling and Raven Clan Pickaxe, which come with a built-in emote.
Players can also purchase the Wolf-Kisses Longboat Glider separately. A bundle includes all of the Eivor items and some exclusive gear: Wolf-Kissed spray, Eivor’s Fury Loading Screen, Raven Clan Emoticon, and Tales from the Animus banner.
Fortnite x Assassin’s Creed release date
The skins will drop into the Fortnite Item Shop on April 7 at 8 PM EST. However, Epic Games hasn’t stated how long the items will stay in the shop.
Assassin’s Creed cosmetic prices
We don’t know the exact price of the Assassin’s Creed skins quite yet, but we can make an educated guess. The prices of the previous Gaming Legends skins have been between 1,500 and 1,600 V-Bucks.

The cosmetic bundle will likely discount the items making them slightly more affordable.
Fortnite Concept Royale 2 turns your skin ideas into real in-game outfits
Fortnite Concept Royale is back and two lucky skin designers have a shot at getting their original creation put in Fortnite later this year.
The second Concept Royale is here, and two skilled designers will have their spooky skins brought to life in Fortnite.
In June of 2021, Fortnite announced the first-ever Concept Royale. Given the theme of frosty and festive, players were challenged to design their own skins with a chance they’d end up in-game.
Here’s everything you need to know about designing and submitting your skins for Concept Royale 2.
Fortnite Concept Royale 2022 details
This time around, players can ditch the frosty and festive designs and focus on spooky and creepy characters. That’s because Concept Royale 2022 is themed around the Fortnitemares event.
Epic Games is looking for Halloween-themed skin designs, and the top two will be put in Fortnite. To submit your skins, post them to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ConceptRoyaleContest2022.
Players have from March 7 at 10 AM EST until April 5 at 11:59 PM EST to submit their skins. Each participant is limited to one submission.
You must be 13 years or older to participate. Winners will also receive a $2,500 cash prize and their skins will be in the Item Shop during the Fortnitemares 2022 event.

Fortnite x Assassins Creed: Ezio skin, cosmetics, and release date
Fortnite is bringing yet another gaming legend to the island as Ezio from Assassin’s Creed drops in to join the fight.
An Assassins Creed collaboration is coming to Fortnite in the form of purchasable cosmetic items.
Fortnite is no stranger to collaborations, especially with other popular video game franchises. Gaming icons such as Master Chief, Kratos, and more have made their way into the world’s most popular battle royale.
With a star-studded cast of characters, players often wonder who will be next. Fans can regularly be found under these crossover announcements posting their wishlists of potential skins.
This time around, Fortnite is collaborating with Assassins Creed. The open-world action-adventure series puts players in the shoes of an assassin who travels throughout history. And now Ezio has traveled to Fortnite.
Fortnite Ezio cosmetic items
The Assassin’s Creed collab adds Ezio, one of the game’s main protagonists, to the Gaming Legends cosmetic series. Ezio will be purchasable in the Item Shop and he will have a hooded and unhooded style.
He also comes with a built-in emote where he draws his hidden blades. Those blades can also be used as a harvesting tool to collect materials or damage players.
Fortnite x Assassin’s Creed release date
We don’t currently know when exactly the Assassin’s Creed skins will be released. However, since they were decrypted, it’s safe to assume they will be in the Item Shop within the next few days.
