Fortnite's in-game news feed has been updated to reveal that a new vehicle called Driftboard comes to the game.
The operating board would be the second vehicle added to the game since the start of season 7, with the X-4 Stormwing aircraft introduced to the game at the beginning of the new season in the V7.00 update.
There is very little information about Driftboard available at the moment, but Epic Games has confirmed that the item will only hold one person at a time, which means that unless you can find a number of them together they will not be useful for squads who want to rotate around the map.
Jump aboard and compete with this new single-player vehicle!
With the item's description on the news feed, using the word "boost", Driftboard is likely to have some sort of booster like Quadcrasher, one of the other popular modes of transport inside the game.
Fortnite fans have been eager to see if a snowboard-like item would be added to the game ever since the teasers for season 7 fell, with an icy figure riding what seems to be a snowboard. It is likely that Driftboard is what the character uses to fly around.
