A new location called Kit’s Cantina has also been added to the island
A new limited time mode has launched in Fortnite featuring Star Wars character The Mandalorian.
The new ‘Mando’s Bounty’ mode lets players test themselves against the iconic bounty hunter either solo, or with a team.
Players will complete to earn galactic credits by eliminating targets that will be selected for them by their bounty puck.
The first player or team to reach the credit goal will win the match, but whilst players are at the top of the leaderboard The Mandalorian will hunt them down, requiring players to battle both the bounty hunter and other players to succeed.
Players who compete in the limited time mode can earn a special Beskar Umbrella featuring the Mudhorn signet from the Mandalorian series, if they are able to earn a Victory Royale.
As well as this mode, a new location called Kit’s Cantina has also been added to the island, taking inspiration from the show.
Mando’s Bounty Event is available to play now, and will remain in the game until February 9, 2pm GMT (9am EST).
