Star Wars Day 2024: Trailers, Fortnite Events, and Major Game Sales Expecte

May the 4th Be With You: What Star Wars Fans Can Expect This Year

May 4th, a date that has become an annual global celebration of all things Star Wars, is once again upon us. Dubbed “Star Wars Day” due to its phonetic resemblance to the franchise’s famous line, “May the Force be with you,” this day has evolved into a significant event for fans, offering a mix of nostalgia and new revelations. As we approach May 4, 2024, the Star Wars community is buzzing with anticipation over what this year’s celebration might bring, especially in the realm of video games.

Trailers and Release Dates on the Horizon

With at least six Star Wars video games currently in active development, fans are hopeful that May 4 will bring exciting updates. Among the most anticipated is “Star Wars Outlaws,” Ubisoft’s open-world adventure game. Having last made an appearance during Ubisoft’s 2023 June showcase and with a 2024 release on the horizon, a new trailer on Star Wars Day would perfectly set the stage for summer’s gaming showcases.

Another title that could potentially make waves is “Star Wars: Hunters.” This mobile hero-shooter, announced in February 2021, has seen multiple delays and is still pending an official release date. A May 4 teaser would be a timely update for fans eagerly awaiting its launch.

Fortnite’s Star Wars Celebration

Fortnite, known for its expansive roster of crossover skins and events, has consistently celebrated Star Wars Day in grand fashion. Following the introduction of lightsabers, blasters, and themed skins in previous years, and a comprehensive Star Wars event in 2023, expectations are high for 2024. While it’s uncertain if Fortnite will surpass its previous celebrations, the return of Star Wars skins to the Item Shop is a safe bet.

Major Star Wars Day Sale

One certainty for May 4, 2024, is the major sale on already-released Star Wars video games. Steam, in particular, is expected to offer the best deals, with significant discounts likely on both new and classic titles, including “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor,” “Star Wars: Empire at War,” and “Star Wars: Jedi Outcast.” This sale represents a perfect opportunity for fans to dive into or expand their Star Wars gaming collection.


As Star Wars Day 2024 approaches, the community’s excitement is palpable. Whether it’s eagerly awaiting new trailers and release dates, participating in Fortnite’s Star Wars festivities, or taking advantage of major sales on beloved games, May 4 promises to be a day of celebration and anticipation for fans of the franchise. As we look back on the legacy of Star Wars and forward to its future, one thing is clear: the Force will be strong this Star Wars Day.

When I was 7, I saw Star Wars: A New Hope in theaters a week after it opened. My parents were nice enough to take me and I have been a fan of Star Wars and almost all science fiction in general. I am an amateur writer who has been published for contributing flavor text to a RP game. I also have a copyright on a novel I hope to be able to publish sometime soon.
