Season 7's week-one challenges are live in "Fortnite", and that means new ways to earn Battle Stars and experience. From there the camera zooms out to a room of the cartoonish, now-iconic Fortnite characters watching it all unfold on their TV, when they get shocked out of their reverie by the major addition to Fortnite's new season: Christmas.
(Collecting 10 Battle Stars will unlock one additional tier.) Weekly challenges are available for anyone who purchases the Season 7 Battle Pass, which can be had for 950 in-game "V-Bucks", or roughly $10. With us now solidly into the Christmas period, we've seen the map overhauled to a winter wonderland to help us feel festive throughout the winter.
The holiday season is upon is and along with it comes a new season of Fortnite. This time around, Epic has launched custom vehicle and weapon skins called Wraps, as well as additional pets and more toys.
As soon as the game goes back online, we'll let you know everything you need to know about planes in Fortnite. Guesses are this is due to it releasing ahead of planned schedule to get on top of the leak, but it does suggest you might pay for early access, then have potential issues actually playing with the mode.
Fortnite is also getting a new vehicle with the arrival of season 7, so get ready to take to the skies with X-4 Stormwing Plane. The three new major areas to explore are Frosty Flights, Polar Peak, and Happy Hamlet, but there's also an entirely new Iceberg biome as well.
