Season 7 of Fortnite is all set to hit the servers today and the patch notes from Epic Games is already out with exciting new additions. The promo video shows the iceberg crash into the island which alters the whole map. There is a new vehicle in the game which is a plane called the X-4 Stormwing Plane that will be available in the battle royale mode of the game. There is also a new Creative mode for those that buy the new Battle Pass, but those who don’t will get access to the mode next week from November 13.

Other things that have been added to the game are Ziplines which players can use to literally zip from one high place to a lower one while retaining the ability to shoot people. The new Battle Pass can be leveled up to earn over 100 rewards in the 100 levels.

The other addition in Fortnite that is of importance is the new Wraps that can transform weapons and vehicles used by characters by equipping them in the locker. Players will be taking to the sky in this new Season to participate in dogfights using the new X-4 Stormwing Planes which has a capability to seat five players including the pilot. It comes with a mounted machine gun that can be used to knock other planes out of the sky.

The X-4 Stormwing Plane can do some tight moves including barrel-rolls which will potentially make the dogfights even more interesting. The new locations added to the map include a new Biome called Iceberg and other new locations like Frosty Flights, Polar Peak, and Happy Hamlet. Players can even slide around on the frozen grounds found in the frigid regions. Check the tweet for the link to the patch notes.
