With just a week away from the launch of The Book of Boba Fett, fans of the Star Wars universe are already beginning to get hyped. To coincide with the debut of the new Disney+ series, Fortnite has been teasing collaboration involving the show’s titular character — and now, it is live. On Friday, Fortnite officially launched its Boba Fett skin and cosmetic packs, allowing for fans to purchase them in the game’s Item Shop. The skin itself is 1,500 V-Bucks, Boba Fett’s Starship glider is 1,200 V-Bucks, and a Gaffi Stick pickaxe is 800 V-Bucks. A bundle featuring the three — as well as a jetback back bling and an emote — is also available for 2,300 V-Bucks.
