Fortnite's snowy seventh season is finally here. Today, developer Epic has detailed the final season for the Battle Royale game, which, as always, brings some significant changes. Most notable are the shifts for the island itself, with new ziplines and a brand new place called Frosty Flights. There is also a new vehicle – Stormwing Aircraft – that should dramatically change the way players move. The winter theme also means many snowy areas, which include smooth surfaces that players can grapple with.
As always, a new season also means a new Battle Pass that brings players all kinds of rewards. There are winter skins, including Sergeant Santa, as well as a new beauty product called Wrap, which allows you to personalize vehicles. Domestic pets were introduced into the game last season, and the Season 7 Battle Pass continues with new animal friends, including a hamster.
Of course, one of the biggest additions to Fortnite Season 7 was detailed yesterday when Epic unveiled a new Minecraft style creative mode in which players create their own Fortnite Experience can design. Fortnite Creative is now available to anyone purchasing the Season 7 Battle Pass, and will be available to all other players on December 13th.
Full patch notes for all details can be found here.
It's been a few busy days for Epic and Fortnite . In addition to the launch of Fortnite Creative and Season 7, the developer unveiled a new PC game store to compete with Steam. And there could be more on the way: It sounds like there's extra Fortnite news at the The Game Awards tonight.
