Fortnite’s about to go extreme with its latest edition: the Driftboard. This is the snowboard – or maybe hoverboard – that was teased ahead of Season 7, and it’s about to make its debut according to the in-game news feed. As Epic’s usual method of deploying new items goes, that means that you should expect the board to debut in tomorrow’s update.
The official news description says “Hop on board and boost past your competition with this new single player vehicle!” Per Epic’s typically subtle hints, that means you can expect a boost feature and that you won’t be able to put two people on a single board. That’d just be silly, after all.
Epic also tweeted out three emoji after the news feed was updated: a snowboarder, a snowflake, and those eyes which are either suspicious, curious, or horny – I’m too old and out of touch to know which at any given time. Together, they suggest that this is indeed a snowboard rather than a hoverboard despite the item’s futuristic appearance. We’ll be waiting until tomorrow to see what surfaces you’ll be able to board across, in any case.
As noted in a promise to kill the unexpected return of the Infinity Blade, tomorrow’s patch will be 7.10, the second big one since the start of Season 7.

Hopefully the Driftboard’s debut turns out better than other recent additions to the game. While snowboards might suggests things are going downhill, the reality is that we can only go up from here.
