Fortnite will soon include a brand new game vehicle called a Driftboard, according to in-game news feeds.
The Driftboard will hit Fortnite as the second vehicle added since Season 7 began. The X-4 Stormwing plane was the first to be added with the V7.00 and it also premiered in the jolly-turned terrifying Christmas themed trailer.
In the trailer, we see a figure riding on what looks to be the Driftboard now, and fans had been speculation that something like this would soon hit the game.
The in-game feed included this image, which includes the word “boost.” This means that the Driftboard will likely include some sort of boosting feature. This will be similar to the Quadcrasher, another popular transportation option in the game.
If the Driftboard is to follow in the wings of the X-4 Stormwing, it will likely appear in an update. the next one (V7.10) is due on Wednesday, December 19th, so we’re guessing we will get to begin drifting on the new board then.
Epic Games Twitter is also getting ready for gamers to try it out. They posted an image of somebody riding it through the snow.
