Season 7 in Fortnite has finally arrived and it’s shaping up to be the biggest so far. Boasting a ton of new content, developer Epic Games has made quite a few changes to their popular battle royale title. Outside of the winter aesthetic, there are a now customization options for your guns and vehicles. Additionally, there are a ton of new skins and cosmetic items for players via the Season 7 Battle Pass.
Yet, the most insane addition comes in the form of planes. Called the X-4 Stormwing, these vehicles will definitely shake up Fortnite’s gameplay. Given how important vertically is in fights, having a vehicle that lets you rule the skies is certainly going to make fights interesting.
Additionally, there have been very little changes to any existing items of weapons. However, players can now use zip lines scattered throughout the map and there have been a number of new locations added to Fortnite.
Here’s a look at the complete 7.00 Season 7 patch notes for Fortnite:
Updated the minimum macOS version required to run Fortnite on Mac to 10.13.6.
Added some optimizations for when players build structures.
Fixed daily Challenge text and some other text to properly switch when changing languages.
Fixed a crash when terminating the game because of an error during initialization.
Fixed a potential performance degradation when loading content.
Modified the error window to use a scrolling region for overflowing text.
Improved the data layout on Xbox One to improve loading times generally and reduce building streaming issues in Battle Royale.
Made the Fortnite taskbar icon blink (Windows only) upon successfully entering a lobby after matchmaking if the application is minimized or inactive in the background.
Minimized chat text on PC and Mobile is no longer clickable. Clicking the chat entry text box will still expand the chat text as normal.
