But how can you unlock Boba Fett in Fortnite? While it’s still too early to know all the details, there’s a lot we can infer based on historical trends. Here’s what we know about unlocking Boba Fett in Fortnite.

How to unlock Boba Fett in Fortnite

Boba Fett will be making his arrival on the Island December 24, 2021 at 7pm ET! #DisneyPlusDay

— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) November 12, 2021

Boba Fett will launch in Fortnite on December 24 at 7 p.m. ET. This will coincide with the launch of the Disney+ show The Book of Boba Fett on December 29, following the story of the famous bounty hunter from the Star Wars series.

Epic Games has yet to reveal just how Boba Fett will be unlocked, but we can presume the Star Wars character will be added to the Item Shop. Many of its most popular characters like Master Chief, Kratos, and Jill Valentine were added to the Item Shop, meaning they had to be purchased with V-bucks. Typically, there are multiple bundles that coincide with character skins, featuring cosmetics like emotes, Back Bling, and loading screens.

If Boba Fett is added to the Item Shop rather than being unlocked via an in-game quest, you can expect the skin to cost around 1,500 V-bucks. It’s possible it will be slightly more or less, but typically, 1,500 is the sweet spot.

Remember, 1,000 V-bucks is equal to around $8, so you’ll need to shell out more than that if you don’t have enough saved up already. You can only purchase V-bucks in five different denominations, including:

  • 1,000: $8
  • 2,800: $20
  • 5,000: $32
  • 13,500: $80

Remember, you can earn V-bucks by leveling up the Battle Pass or by purchasing them with real money.

When you purchase cosmetic bundles from the Item Shop, you do “save” money rather than buying items individually, so if you want the additional items, this is definitely the way to go. Typically, the least expensive option is to buy the outfit, which often comes with an emote or something else.

One thing that isn’t clear is whether Fennec Shand — who is seen sitting next to Boba in the promotional art — will be available to unlock as well. It’s common for Fortnite to have multiple characters released alongside one another, such as Daryl and Michonne from The Walking Dead and Ripley and the Xenomorph from Alien, so it’s possible Fennec and Boba Fett will be available as part of a package.

We will update this article once we receive confirmation of how Boba Fett will be unlocked in Fortnite.

All Incantations and how to unlock them in Hades 2
Melinoe fighting under a full moon in Hades 2.

You can't have a game where you play as a witch without a massive cauldron. Hades 2 places one front and center in the Crossroads, but it isn't just there for decorative purposes. Melinoë can use this big boiling pot of green liquid to bring new features into the game, whether it be between runs or during them, in exchange for various materials like Silver. You will only start out with a few Incantations, but doing more runs and getting further toward your goal of killing Chronos will gradually unlock more to create. There are far more than you might expect for an early access game. Here are all the Incantations and their recipes.
Every Incantation, effect, and recipe
The order in which you unlock Incantations in the menu can vary based on what you do and how you progress in Hades 2, so this list is in no particular order. Also, it is possible there are more we haven't been able to unlock yet, so we will update this list if we discover any more or if additional ones are added during early access.

How to unlock all weapons in Hades 2
Hades 2 key art from its first trailer.

Hades 2's Melinoë is a very different main character from the first game's Zagreus in terms of personality and in how she fights. Being a witch, magic is core to her moveset, but she still wields all sorts of new weapons. You won't find the standard sword or spear here, as she starts off with just a witch's staff . You'll need to unlock the rest in traditional roguelike fashion. Each item requires you to gather up different materials, but most have some overlap so you will need to be selective about which one you craft first. We're still in the early access period, but for now, here are all the Nocturnal Arms in the game and how you can unlock them.
How to unlock every Nocturnal Arm
Ignoring the Witch's Staff, which you start with, there are four additional weapons to unlock.
Sister Blades
These fast, close-range melee daggers are the easiest to unlock and cost one Silver.
Umbral Flames
This is a medium-range weapon that prioritizes magic and fire attacks for three Silver and three Cinder.
Moonstone Axe
The heavy Moonstone Axe is your big, but slow damage dealer. It will cost you 15 Silver to pick up, so you will need to save up a bit.
Argent Skull
This si an explosive casting weapon that won't be available to unlock until you reach a certain point in the game that we won't spoil here. It will cost you two Glassrock and one Bronze to make.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?
Nanner Ringer emote in Fortnite

The last thing you want to see when loading up Fortnite for a match with your friends, especially when a big new update is dropping, is to be hit with an error. The worst of which might be the "Fortnite servers not responding" error due to how vague it is. Most people don't know what servers are, let alone what it means when they aren't responding, except that you can't play your game. The question then becomes if you have any power to solve this issue yourself or if you're forced to wait until Epic Games addresses it on its end.
Can you fix the servers not responding error in Fortnite?

The first thing to do when encountering this error in Fortnite is to go straight to the Epic Games Help website or X account (formerly Twitter). This will let you know if it is something on Epic Games' end that is the issue and also keep you updated on the status of when the servers are expected to be fixed. Servers can also be taken down for maintenance or in preparation for major updates, which will also be accounted for here. If this is the case, there's nothing to do but wait until they announce the servers are back up and running.
