A new crossover event has hit Fortnite, this time with the beloved sci-fi fantasy saga Star Wars.

Earlier today, Fortnite shared a quick teaser trailer which features an Imperial Star Destroyer appearing in the sky. The visuals then cut to two stormtroopers scouting Fortnite’s island and spotting the game’s various characters. To coincide with the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, players can now dress up as a stormtrooper. Those interested in the new skins can purhcase them from Fortnite‘s item shop, or get them for free upon purchase of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order via Epic Games’ store.

In addition to the skins, the iconic Star Destroyer appears to be getting closer in the game’s map, suggesting more will be revealed in the upcoming days. Keep it locked here for more details when they surface.

Star Wars is just the latest to team up with Fortnite. In the past the battle royale-styled game included crossovers with Avengers, Stranger Things, Borderlands 3, and even Weezer’s newest album.

In related news, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters December 20.
