Whats new in Fortnite season 7?


The zipline is a big addition to the game and it is an item that has been teased for a number of months.

They are found around the iceberg and near expedition outposts and players can use them to travel from one end to the other.



While using a zipline you are able to use items and fire weapons.

Fortnite players can now also take to the sky with the X-4 Stormwing Plane which can seat a total of four peoples – four passengers and one pilot.

It includes a machine gun that can overheat in a similar way to the mounted turret.

The plane can do sharp turns, fly upside down and do barrel rolls and when players leave the plane while its in the air they can skydive back down to the ground.

They can be used to customize your vehicles and various weapons.
