Fortnite Season 8: The Driftboard is finally coming to battle royale

As season 7 comes to a close we are more than likely going to get the Driftboard in-game!

Season 8 is just around the corner.

Fortnite fans have been speculating for weeks about when the long-anticipated Driftboard would be added to the battle royale mode as another mode of transportation.


After the island was covered in its entirety by snow, this seemed like the opportune moment for EPIC to add the board to the game.

However, it has now been revealed that the board will most likely be added to the game in the next update – v7.40.

Prominent Fortnite Leaker ‘Lucas7yoshi_’ tweeted out saying: ‘lowkey expect driftboard in v7.40 ngl’.

Fortnite developers, Epic games had previously forstalled the release of the Driftboard saying:

“Unfortunately, we’ve decided to hold the release of this new vehicle to make some final quality of life changes and other polish improvements.

“We want to get you out there carving up the slopes as soon as possible.

“However, our goal is to make sure that your experiences on the Driftboard are up to our expectations.

“We still have tons of quality of life and balance improvements on the way in v7.10.”

Let’s hope we are out there cutting some shapes in the next update!
