Fornite season 7's patch notes reveal a number of cool additions (both literally and figuratively) for players looking to settle into the holiday season. There are brand-new locations like Frosty Flights and Polar Peak, an entirely new Battle Pass filled to bursting with new content for players to unlock as they level up, and even a new vehicle in the form of the X-4 Stormwing plane. There's a little bit of something for every single one of Fortnite's 8.3 million concurrent players.
Fortnite season 7 also has a lot of smaller changes that will alter the way gamers can duke it out. Admittedly, some of the cosmetic items (like Wraps for guns and vehicles) are much more exciting than the nitty-gritty stuff, but its sounds like one of the biggest changes is still on the way for creative fans in the form of the aptly title Creative mode.
With so much to highlight, Epic Games has rolled out a teaser trailer showcasing all of the goodies that await gamers in the new patch. It's filled with stop-motion characters, plenty of holiday cheer, and can be viewed below:
There is a ton to go over here, but one of the major highlights isn't even part of the super-popular Battle Royale part of the game. The cooperative portion of Fornite's 4-player experience, Save the World's Stand and Fight campaign, is set to reach its conclusion with Canny Valley Act 3. This features new quests to complete, new areas to explore, and a Mythic reward to unlock. Overall, there's plenty of new content here.
Fortnite's Creative mode is also being made available early to users that own Fortnite season 7's Battle Pass. This window of exclusivity is only a week-long, meaning that others will be given their islands (the areas that players are able to create on) for the new endeavor on December 13. Overall, it looks to be a fun addition to the game that will provide users the opportunity to create and share new ways to play – thus growing the community. If all of that weren't enough, the first ever flying vehicle, the X-4 Stormwing, is set to take players and their friends to the skies. Up to five people can ride on the plane simultaneously, meaning that team traversal will be a major focus in Fortnite season 7. Anyone that manages to secure one of these machine-gun equipped planes in Fortnite will be able together take in the new vistas.
New locations like Frosty Flights, Polar Peak, and Happy Hamlet are all tied to the theme of the yuletide season. Meanwhile, Wraps will allow players to customize their ride and weapons for the first time. These appear to be holiday-focused as well for the time being, but others are sure to emerge sooner rather than later. Finally, it looks as if Fortnite will have skiing and zip lining in time, but as of this patch they are nowhere to be seen. Perhaps That will change in a few weeks, but for the time bing players can find solace in taking to the skies.
