Fortnite Millenium Falcon Glider free gift

The Star Wars and Fortnite content doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. After a plethora of new skins arrived in the Item Shop, it’s safe to say Star Wars is the most promoted piece of entertainment in Fortnite. However, this doesn’t mean the movie franchise is done promoting. According to leaks, there could be a new Millennium Falcon Glider arriving as a free gift to all players. This gift could be a part of Winterfest or just handed out to all players.

Will the Falcon glide into Fortnite?

While the leak for this promotion does appear to be legitimate, it is just a leak. In fact, the Fortnite data-miners who leaked the Millennium Falcon Glider aren’t even sure it will come to the game. So, don’t be shocked if this doesn’t end up being true.

However, there’s a better chance than not of the Glider making its way to the player’s lockers. So, let’s sneak a quick peek at the Millennium Falcon Glider. Fortnite leaker @HYPEX has the first look at the item.

The Glider is supposedly a part of the New Trilogy set, which is a nod to the reboot of the Star Wars franchise. If we take a look at the bottom right corner, it says “Winterfest_Presents”. This could mean that one day during Winterfest, players will open their stocking to find this Millennium Falcon Glider.

However, another possible way for Epic Games to deliver the Glider is a simple giveaway. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker releases on Dec. 20, and they could give out the Glider in celebration of the release. As HYPEX mentions, though, this is not 100 percent confirmed. Epic could still be tinkering with how they will implement the Millennium Falcon into Fortnite.
